Pooh Pancake Bento

It has being more than a year since my last bento post on making the "Macar Garden". Usually for a traditional bento it consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables that are packed in a box-shaped container. But recent years making of kids’ bento also became a trend in Singapore under the influence of those creative Japanese bento makers. For kids’ bento you can packed anything that your kids prefer in those cute and fashion “bento boxes” that comes in various sizes and designs. (Click HERE for sample)

Here I am packing a "Pancake Bento" which I believes everyone loves pancakes despite whether kids or adults so with some quick and easy pre-packed pancake mixture and extra ingredients like milk and egg you can prepared some delicious pancakes in no time.

I bought this set of "Pooh Face" pancake pan about 2 years back during my craze over these cute bento products. So far I have only tried using it once until recently one of my friend bought me another similar set from her trip. So I decided to use it to make some cute "Pooh Face" pancakes for my boy.

These collage photos show the steps on how to cook the pancake and you could also refer to the instructions below:-

Ingredients:-
200g Pre-mixed Pancake Flour
1 Egg
150ml Fresh Milk
Oil or Soft Butter to grease

Method:
1. In a large mixing bowl add in pancake flour, egg and fresh milk then slowly whisk it with a balloon whisk till well combined.
2. Set the mixture aside for about 2 - 3 minutes, lightly grease and preheat the pooh pancake pan or any small pancake pan till hot.
3. Slowly ladle 1 small scoop of batter and swirl it around the mould/pan.
4. Cook it on low heat for about 2 minutes till the mixture almost dried up and bubbled. (refer to the photo above)
5. Carefully loosen the side of the pancake if using the pooh pancake mould, then flip it over to cook the other side for another 1 minute or so.
6. Remove from pan and continue with the rest of the mixture.
7. Keep it warm and serve with extra butter and maple syrup.


You can easily get a pack of this pre-mixed pancake mixture from any leading supermarkets or you can also use any of your reliable pancake recipes.

My Boy loves Winnie the Pooh so I have some collection of the Pooh related bento items range from bento boxes, food cutters, fork and spoon and etc (Click HERE for sample). So with this lovely "Pooh Pancake Bento" it really brings joy and excitement to him when he gets a set of this for his afternoon tea break. To make this more attractive, I also add in pooh shape butters and some maple syrup in pooh container. Mummies with similar interests I am sure everyone of you can prepared something even better than mine to bring a smile on your kids' face.

Pooh Pineapple Tarts

Gong Xi Gong Xi!!!!! Gong Xi Fatt Chai!!! In about a week time, on 26 January 2009 will be the 1st day of Chinese Lunar New Year. On this special day, all the family members, relatives and friends will get together and enjoy meals, goodies and spent valuable times together.

Every year around 1 or 2 weeks before Chinese New Year, we will always spent some time to make some Chinese New Year cookies for the family. And Pineapple tarts is always the "MUST DO LIST" because it is one of our family favourite cookies out of all the range. This year I made Reyon's favourite pineapple tarts into Pooh Face Shape and he was very excited about it. Too bad I don't have an Ox shape cutter to do Ox shape tarts despite it is the year of Ox for 2009. Posted by Picasa

Lastly I wish all reader a Happy and Prosper Chinese New Year!!!!!!

Pooh Apple Tea-Cake

This is our Sunday afternoon Tea-Break which I specially made for Reyon using the Mini Pooh Silicon Mould that one of our friend bought for us from Japan. Since I have a few apples sitting in the fridge for some time, I decided to use ti to make this sweet and soft Pooh Apple Tea-Cake.


From the two pictures, which set of pooh do you prefer? The one with chocolate outline or the one without? As for me, I find that the colour of the end products are rather too pale compare to what it suppose to be. So I was joking with Reyon that these Mini Pooh is rather too fair and they need to go for some sun tanning........ :p

This Apple Tea-Cake is rather easy to make and it is sort of using the similar concept as the Mango Jam Cake where you put the filling in between the cake batter and bake. But before you start off with the cake batter you have to prepare the Candied Apple first. For my candied apple, I add in extra golden raisin and RUM to enhance the favour.Posted by Picasa

Ingredient For Candied Apple:
3 Green Apple, peel and cored
60g Sugar
2 Tablespoon of Golden Raisin
4 Tablespoons RUM(optional)
2 Tablespoon Water

Methods:
1. Wash, peel and cored the apple, then cut into small cubes and place all the ingredients into a small heavy-based saucepan and cooked over medium low heat for about 15 - 20 minutes.
2. Stir occasionally and cooked till the apples cubes are almost transparent (like picture 3 on row 2 shown above) .
3. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool.

Ingredients For Cake Batter:
260g Cake Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
180g Butter, soften
140g Sugar
2 Medium Size Egg
2 Green Apple, peel and grated
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

Methods:
1. Sift the flour and baking powder together and set aside.
2. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and white. (after 5 minutes on medium speed)
3. Slowly fold in half of the flour mixture and give it a few stir till combined, then grate in 1 apple and lemon juice.
4. Give the mixture a few stir and then add in the second half of the flour and grate in the remaining apple and stir the mixture till well combine.
5. Next pipe or scold 1/4 of the batter into the muffin cup or mould then top with 1/2 Tablespoon of the candied apple and fill the batter to about 3/4 cup fill.
6. Bake in the preheat 180 degree oven for about 15 - 18 minutes, test it with a skewer around 15 minutes.

Notes:
a) This quantity fills about 12 medium size muffin cups
b) If you do not have any RUM, you can replace it with 80ml of Apple Juice

Winnie The Pooh English Breakfast

How will you react if you are serve with this Set of Assorted Pooh Design Breakfast during Sunday Morning. I am sure no matter if you are an adult or kid, you will definitely be delighted to see this and it will bring smile on your face for the rest of the day. But out of this set, I am still not perfect in the Pooh Sunny Egg because I don't really know how to handle the mould well to make the egg in good shape....... :(


I made these for Reyon this morning and the 1st reaction he had when he sees this is "Wow!!!! So many Bear Bear!!!!" I used the Pooh Bread Cutter for the Toast, the Pooh Egg Ring Mould for the Sunny Egg, Pooh Cookie Cutter for the Ham and Pooh Vegetable Cutter for the Apple Slices...... too bad i can't mould the Tomato in either Pooh Slices or Shape... :)Posted by Picasa

Mini Pooh Bento Set

Got these cute little 3 layer Mini Bento Box from Daiso and I knew I must do something with it. And the very first thing that come across my mind was to make these Mini Pooh Bento Sets. I made these for Reyon and my colleagues and everyone of them said that they are too cute to be eaten......



This is a very easy to prepare and I am sure anyone of you will do a great job on this with the help of these cute pooh utensils. I used the Pooh Vegetable Cutter to cut out Pooh Head print on the apple slices. Then I used the Pooh Cookie Cutter to cut out Pooh Head Print on Bread, Cheese and Seaweed in order to sandwich them together.

In order for me to make these cute little Pooh Breakfast for Reyon. I must sincerely give my Thanks for one of my dear friend Julia. I must thanks her and her husband for taking the effort to help us source for the Pooh Series Bakeware and sent them to us all the way from Japan. Reyon and I really appreciate it and your effort really bring Big and Warm smiles to this little fan of Pooh. Thank you so much, my dear friend.
