Strawberry Sandwich Toaster Cake#BakingBloggers

Welcome to this month's event of Baking Bloggers. Baking Bloggers is a group started by Sue , in which we are given a theme  or an ingredient and  we must  bake the a recipe with it.
This month  our theme is Baking with Small Appliances. It was so much fun trying to use small appliances and baking with it.  I have used my sandwich toaster to make these soft and quick Strawberry cakes.  
Made these for evening tea and as they out of the toaster, they were vanishing.  I had force stop them not to finish all since a pic had yet to be taken.  Did not use any topping for decoration since I,  used fresh strawberries to make them and had enough of flavor , most of all there were eagle eyes waiting... to devour them.
 
Ingredients 

100 Grams Unsalted Butter  
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Cup All Purpose Flour 

1 Teaspoon Baking powder  
1/2  Teaspoon Strawberry essence 
5 - 6 Fresh Strawberries - pureed
Pink color few drops  - optional ( did not use) 
A Pinch of Salt


Method

Sieve the flour with the  baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a bowl, add the butter and sugar, whisk until smooth, then add the egg and beat well. Next add the essence and mix it in. Add  half of the flour mixture and strawberries gently fold it in and mix. Finally add the remaining half of the flour mixture and combine until the batter is smooth.
Brush butter or oil on both inner sides (top and bottom) of the sandwich maker, then close it and turn it on to allow it to preheat it for about 3 minutes. 
Once hot, open it and spoon the cake batter in each well until full. Then close and bake your sandwich cakes for about 3 minutes.
After which you can open and check to see if they are done.
If you want them golden on both sides flip them and keep for a minute, I did that.
 They will turn a golden brown when ready.
When you bite into them they will have a light and fluffy texture.

Strawberry Bundt Mousse Cake #BundtBakers


I made this Strawberry Bundt Mousse Cake for my hubby's birthday and also made a strawberry mirror glaze. But this cake with the mousse require's atleast 8 hours to set in the fridge, but gave it just 3 hours to set as the result the mousse it not set well, it was melting. To add to it the mirror glaze was also hot, both combine together it started melting. Had to cut the cake for the party, in the evening  - so a hurry scurry job... bad very bad...


Nevertheless the cake and mousse tasted great, my guest enjoyed it. Served this as a dessert. This cake requires at least 8 hours for the mousse to set and the mirror glaze should warm while pouring,  give it time to set in the refrigerator,  for at least  and hour or two after it is poured on the mousse ..then will be perfect.
Ingredients
For the Cake
1.3/4 Cups Caster Sugar
100 Grams Strawberry jelly packet
200 Grams Salted Butter -softened
4 Eggs
2-3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoons Corn flour
2 Teaspoons Baking powder
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla essence
1/2 Cup Strawberry puree 


For the Mousse
5 Tablespoon Sugar
3 Teaspoons Cornflour
300  ML Milk
4 Egg - yolks only
1 Tablespoon Gelatin
1/4 Cup Water
250 Ml Whipped Cream
1/4 Teaspoon Strawberry essence


Method
Seive the all purpose flour, corn flour and baking powder, keep aside.

Grease a 9" Bundt pan and also a 6" bundt pan- since this make 2 cakes.

Beat butter, sugar and strawberry jelly crystals until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Then add the vanilla essence and strawberry puree and continue to beat till incorporated. Now add the flour in three parts alternately with the milk. Beat on low speed till the flour and milk is incorporated. Divide the batter evenly between the greased pans. Bake at 180 degrees C for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool in their pans over a wire rack for at least 10 minutes, before tapping out to cool completely.


For the mousse
In a small sauce pan add 1/4 cup water and sprinkle the gelatin and set it aside for soak for 10 minutes.  

In the meantime lets prepare the custard for the mousse

Mix the cornflour in 2 tablespoons milk and keep aside.
Heat the  milk in  a pan on  low flame.  When the milk comes to a boil add the sugar,  keep stirring, till  the sugar melts.    Whisk the egg yolks and add 1/2 cup of  hot milk and continue whisking till they are incorporated.  Now pour this egg mixture and the cornflour mix  into the remaining milk and whisk continuously place it back on low flame cook as you whisking till it forms a thick smooth custard.  Take off flame add the essence, place a cling film on the custard, keep aside to cool.
Now take the sauce pan  in which gelatin is soaked and place it on slow fire till it just begins melt.  Take off flame and let it cool.
Whip cream till stiff peaks form.

Pour the cool gelatin into the custard and whisk till well incorporated, fold in the whipped cream and pour half of it in the silicone mold that the cake was baked and place the cake press the cake lightly and pour the remaining on top.  Tap it lightly on the counter to remove any air bubbles.  Cover it with a cling film and keep it in the refrigerator to cool for at least 8 hours.  
After it it set peel off the mold and place it on a cake board and pour the warm mirror glaze on top.  Set it again in the refrigerator and serve cool..   This mousse cake with mirror glaze is so yummy.. you will not be able to stop eating at one piece that's for sure!! 
My Notes
I used around 10 big frozen strawberries and pureed them in a small blender.
The Bundt pan will take longer to bake then the 6 inch pan.
