Conjured Mana Pudding ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on

In real life, this would be called Butterscotch Pudding.
You will need:
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
12 Ounces Evaporated Milk
2/3 Cup Flour
1/8 teaspoon Salt
3 Egg Yolks
2 Cups Milk
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
Melt butter in sauce pan and add brown sugar. Cook for 2 minutes. 
It will resemble wet sand.
Add 1/4 cup of the evaporated milk; slowly.
Bring to a boil constantly stirring for 30 seconds.
Remove from heat.

Combine remaining evaporated milk, flour, salt and egg yolks in a medium bowl.

Heat milk (non evaporated) in a small sauce pan over medium head until tiny bubbles form around the edges.
Watch the temperature, milk burns easily.

Combine the flour mixture into the brown sugar mixture and stir.
Slowly, add the hot milk to the brown sugar and flour mixture, whisk.
Return to medium heat for 12 minutes – until it thickens to pudding consistency.
Tip: Keep the heat steady, it will be liquid until minute 10 that BAM! thick.
Remove from heat, add vanilla.

Pour into dishes or a pie and let sit to cool for 30 minutes.
Yum!

Poached Salmon ~ Warcraft

Posted on Updated on

I ran across several exotic recipes for poached salmon. This recipe is a basic recipe, feel free to “spice it up” according to your tastes. 
You will need:
Salmon
water
salt & pepper

Using a large flat pan, bring water to a slow simmer.
Add salmon fillets. Add more water if you need to, the water should just cover the fish.

Leave at a slow simmer for 10 minutes.

 Remove fish from water and pat dry with a paper down.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Yum!

Toxic Oozling ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on


Broll Bearmantle showing off his new pet, the toxic oozling. 


1 cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt


Mix sugar and butter together. 


 Add eggs and chocolate. 


 Spread in a greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.


 Good job! Now smash it into pieces! And add a cupful of icing.


 Roll into balls and set on a tray. Let chill in fridge until they hold together. (4 hours)

Here you have 2 choices:
You can melt white chocolate, add a few drops of green food coloring and drop brownie balls and coat with chocolate.
Set on a tray till chocolate hardens.


Or:


Make a thin icing and poured it over the balls. Smooth it around with a knife. It takes a few hours for it to dry completely. 
Both are messy and equally delicious.


 Let dry.

Yum!

Goldshire Pudding ~ World of Warcraft Expansion Idea

Posted on Updated on




“What Happens in Goldshire, stays in Goldshire.”




I can see this as a daily cooking quest in Stormwind.  


-Collect 3 eggs and a bag of flour. Quest reward is a goblin engineered slot machine that for 5 silver you can pull the handle and get the chance at willing a prize. 
The prizes? I dunno, What do you think would make a great prize?


You will need:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).



1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
3 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup beef drippings



Mix flour and salt together until blended. 

Make a well in the flour, add the milk, and whisk until consistent. 
Beat the eggs into the batter. 

Add water and beat again until the mixture is light and frothy. 

 Pour drippings into a 9×12 inch baking dish and place into the oven until the drippings sizzle. 

Pour the batter over the drippings and bake for 30-45 minutes (or until the sides have risen and are golden brown). It will puff up, nicely.
Cut into eight portions and serve immediately.

Yum!

 This was delicious!  It smelled like a fresh loaf of bread and a roast beef cooking at the same time.  Wonderful!  I served it with the roast beef I got the drippings from, a vegetable and a salad. It looks funky but I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. 


Lunar Festival Dumplings ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on

 If you are hungry, then you have come to the right place my friend! Dumplings are the traditional food of the Lunar Festival; it has been served since the time of the first Lunar Festival, and I am pleased to be able to offer it at this one.  In exchange for just a single coin of ancestry, I will share with you a sampling of one of the tastiest dishes you will ever enjoy!

You will need: 





6 cups vegetable oil for frying
Heat oil to 365 degrees in a deep fryer or heavy saucepan.


1 egg
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk


1/2 cup white sugar
In a separate bowl for coating.



In a medium bowl, beat the egg, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon oil until light. 



Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, stir in alternately with the milk until well blended.



The batter will thicken if you let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes.



Drop by teaspoonfuls into the hot oil and fry on both sides until golden. 

They look a bit funky, not to worry, pull the stray crispies off and you are good to go.



Drain on paper towels or a rack and roll in 1/2 cup white sugar while still warm.



Yum!



Have you ever bought a cake and wondered what to do with the cake dome? Please, don’t say you thew it away. They work great as containers for any creation. They also stack well so save them up and give your baked goods as gifts.



Winter Veil Cookies

Posted on Updated on

You will need:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
Combine all ingredients.
Mix well.
Drop onto floured surface.
Cut some of the dough off and roll in flour until it is not sticky.
Roll dough out till desired thickness.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees F. (176 degrees C)
See how the edges are slightly brown, that is how you want the cookies. If you wait until the tops are brown, the cookies will turn out hard.
This is what the bottoms should look like.
Simplest Christmas icing job ever:
I took white icing and generously iced the cookies.
Then I took some blue tinted sugar and sprinkled then.
Snowballs!
You can buy blue sugar at the grocery store or you can take
1/4c sugar
1 drop of blue food coloring
mix
Yum!
