Teldrassil Tenderloin ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on

Darkmoon Faire is a favorite place of mine in World of Warcraft and an introduction of Darkmoon Faire specific food was quite exciting for The Gamer’s Fridge. Here is a fun and yummy rendition of Teldressil Tenderloin.

You will need:
Varity of your favorite vegetables. I used:
Potatoes (red and white)
Carrots
Green Beans
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
salt and pepper

Coat the pan with the olive oil and lay the vegetables flat.
Season with your favorite flavors or just salt and pepper.
Roast in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

 Lay tenderloins on top of roasted vegetables.
Place back into 350 degree oven for 10 -15 more minutes.
My tenderloins were thin, thicker cut pieces may need to bake longer.

Serve! One pan, no mess. Yum!

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!

Essence Mango and Tel’Abim Banana Bread ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on

I’m stepping outside the box today.
I was feeling a bit nostalgic and still had a few Essence Mangoes around.
The mango was given out by the Zandalar Tribe when you reached the appropriate reputation. (I have great refrigeration.)  I had a expert frost mage enchant my crisper in exchange for my Pandarian Red Salad recipe. It’s one of my Mists of Pandaria expansion ideas so it is not available in game yet. 
The Tel’Abim Banana is abundant on Azeroth and can be found almost anywhere.

You will need:
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup mashed bananas (2 bananas)
1 mango, peeled and mashed

 Add all ingredients and mix.

 Mix well.

 Add to greased bread loaf pan.
Sprinkle top with 1 tbs sugar

 Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes. Until knife inserted into center comes out clean.

 Let cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan.

 Slice. Serve.

 Yum!
