An easy dish to make and one that I recommend that you try, if you never had. Especially on a chill morning.

thanks to eG no doubt ,  there might be a ' run ' on those molds

 

got an email from Amazon , my mold has been delayed !

 Oh no. I treat mine as though it cost me as much as a small car.   Few things in my kitchen are given the respect that my white plastic rice mould is given.   Perhaps I should order a second one to ward off any disaster.

@Anna N

 

I understand completely.

 

a few key outstanding items in my kitchen have a brand new ' reserve '

 

and just to be on the very safe side , a brand new Reserve of the Reserve.

 

All in their un-opened boxes.

 

stuff thats just terrific might only get a Reserve

 

in my defense , all purchased on sale at outstanding prices.

Yes.  Quicker than pancakes, that's for sure!

 

 

I just looked up a couple of recipes and by the time I made the preserved vegetables, the chili sauce and all the rest of it, I would not only have made the pancakes, but eaten them.  I must say, though, it looks good.

It was indeed a tasty bowl of noodles and the sweet, spicy pork almost reminded me of a breakfast sausage!

This recipe is the same as the one in the book, so there was nothing for me to prep in advance, except the chilli oil and I made up a batch of that last week.  Everything else was from the pantry.

On her website, Fuchsia recommends a purchased ya cai so that's what I used for the preserved veg:

My only modifications were to reduce the amount of oil for browning the pork, eliminating the salt and reducing the amounts of soy sauce and Sichuanese ya cai to adjust the salt for my taste.

That flavor combination of sweet caramel and sour pickles sounds odd but it also reminds me of the classic maple sugaring season treat of Sugar on Snow - maple syrup, boiled to a soft ball stage, drizzled on to clean snow, twirled up on to a fork and eaten with dill pickles and fresh, warm doughnuts.

I must say that warm noodles sound much better for a chilly morning than my snow comparison 🙃

Is the sweet fermented sauce the same as this?

I am not expert in these matters so hopefully someone else can give you a more authoritative answer but in the meantime, based on what she says in the book, that appears to be the stuff she's using in her recipe as the characters on your label match with this description from the book:

fullsizeoutput_39e9.thumb.jpeg.c616c3bfa4b4fc2489bc9ab6e4fb1819.jpeg

She illustrates that description with this photo:

I have both but I find that taste-wise there is a difference between the two.  Maybe @liuzhou can add to this.

That would be great! 

Do both your sauces have the same characters on the labels?  If so, perhaps the difference is just due to the brand?  

My hoisin sauce has different characters for the first 2 and only the last one matches so I know it's not what she's calling for here.

The characters on the description above and those on the packet are different but say the same thing. The first, 甜麵醬 (tián miàn jiàng) use the Traditional Chinese characters, today mainly only used in Hong, Taiwan and among the Chinese diaspora. The second on the package, 甜面酱 (tián miàn jiàng) uses the Simplified characters used on the Chinese mainland.  The "sweet bean sauce" translation is just wrong. 甜面酱is literally "sweet wheat sauce", made from fermented wheat, although it may also contain beans. Hoisin sauce is also  wrong. Although visually similar, Hoisin sauce (Traditional Chinese: 海鮮醬; Simplified Chinese: 海鲜酱(hǎi xiān jiàng) is different in taste and is used in different applications.

 

Interestingly, her recipe for Dan Dan Noodles in her Sichuan Cookery / Land of Plenty does not contain any of either. I can't see one teaspoon making much difference.

 

One thing I dislike about Dunlop's books is the way she mixes Traditional and Simplified characters, sometimes even in one name. Traditional characters are rarely used in Sichuan

My planned breakfast for tomorrow is her recipe for Xie Laoban’s Dan Dan Noodles, also from Every Grain of Rice (and available here online) and it doesn't call for those ingredients either.

Xie Laoban’s Dan Dan Noodles recipe is also in Sichuan cookery / Land of Plenty. Same recipe but ingredient quantities differ in some instances. Maybe she tweaked it.

Also, her story of how she got the recipe keeps changing, too.

Think if this as a palate cleanser of sorts, you shouldn't mix them uh the same bite. Now the kugle doesn't taste very caramely, the long baking time makes it more deep and savory.

So kind of like the Vietnamese caramel sauce (Nuoc Mau) https://www.vietworldkitchen.com/blog/2007/10/caramel-sauce.html  I get it.

As mentioned yesterday, Xie Laoban’s Dan Dan Noodles, also from Every Grain of Rice (and available here online) with broccolini

IMG_0257.thumb.jpg.4bfd50538916b2c55671946594d890a5.jpg

Totally different from the "classic" Dan Dan noodles that I made yesterday from the same book.  These have sesame paste and and Sichuan pepper.  This recipe calls for beef, but I used pork. As usual, I reduced the amount of soy sauce significantly to control the salt

      I've already polished off half a box of Harvest Crunch Granola today. I haven't really eaten cereal in years, but these crunchy granola clusters are hard to resist.

      LUNCH FROM THE JAR, I.E. LAYERED SALAD IN THE OFFICE
       
      Most of us take lunch boxes to the office. Some lucky people can warm their food up at work The rest have to eat sandwiches. Sandwiches are great, but even if we absolutely love them we could get fed up with them in the end. Regardless of where we work we can save the situation with salads. Every day we can prepare a different one and we have an entirely new lunch. If we also take an attractive dish, we have something that is not only tasty but also glamorous.

      I would like to share with you the recipe for a salad which looks equally as beautiful as it is yummy. The chickpeas and groats make it a satisfying and balanced meal, after which we won't be hungry. I think that if you prepare your lunch in the morning and plan to eat it at lunchtime, we should keep the salad and the dip separately. Otherwise, after a few hours in the jar, we have an unappetising dish with squishy lettuce, which isn't what we want, is it?

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      1 beetroot
      200g of tinned chickpeas
      100g of bulgur
      1 carrot
      1 fresh green pepper
      4 lettuce leaves
      200g of natural yoghurt
      handful of minced chives
      1 small chili pepper
      salt and pepper

      Clean the beetroot and bake or boil it. Grate the beetroot and carrot. Cut the pepper into thin strips. Boil the bulgur in salty water. Arrange in layers in a jar the beetroot, chickpeas, pepper, bulgur, carrot and lettuce. Dice the chili pepper. Mix the natural yoghurt with the chives and chili pepper. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Add the dip to the salad just before serving.

      ALMOND CUSCUS WITH CRANBERRIES AND PINEAPPLE
       
      I hate getting up in the morning. My household knows that before 8 o'clock I'm unbearable, and because almost every day I wake up much earlier, I tend to be unbearable more frequently than I want. Every extra five minutes of sleep is priceless, so I appreciate a good breakfast that is not too complicated and is quick to prepare.

      Recently, I have been preparing breakfast with groats and flakes. This time I chose cuscus. This product is a cross between pasta and groats, and it doesn't need long to prepare. It is enough to add hot water or milk and leave for a few minutes. I added some fresh pineapple, cranberries and banana. I spiced it up with some hot chili pepper .

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      125g of cuscus
      400ml of almond milk
      1 tablespoon of honey
      1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
      2 slices of fresh pineapple
      1 teaspoon of minced chili pepper
      150g of fresh cranberries
      2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      1 banana
      4 tablespoons of flaked almonds

      Wash the cranberries and put them into a pot. Add two tablespoons of water and the brown sugar. Boil, stirring gently until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened. Boil the almond milk with the vanilla essence. Pour the milk onto the cuscus and leave for 5-7 minutes. Slice the banana and roast the almond flakes. Peel the pineapple and dice it. Mix the pineapple, chili pepper and honey. Add the pineapple to the cuscus and mix it in. Put the mixture into two bowls. Put the cranberries and banana on the top and sprinkle with the almond flakes.

      Enjoy your meal!

      I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  
       
      Ingredients
      113 grams (1 stick) salted butter
      26 grams toasted almond oil
      200 grams sugar
      6 grams vanilla extract
      4 egg yolks
      160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
      50 grams almond meal
      175 grams all-purpose flour
      2 1/2 grams baking powder
      2 1/2 grams baking soda
      12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling
       
      12 Servings
      Preheat the oven to 350°
      Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.
       
      Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.
       
      Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.
       
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
       
      Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.
       
      Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.
       
      Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.

      Raspberry porridge
       
      Today, I used the best part of my raspberry shopping for my summer second breakfast. I recommend it for those who only drink coffee in the morning. The rolled oats and chia seeds ensure that it satisfies our hunger very well, and the empty bowl means that you are sorry the dish was so small.

      The inspiration for this dish comes from "Smaki życia" ("Flavour of Life") by Agnieszka Maciąg.

      Ingredients:
      100g of raspberries
      3 teaspoons of honey
      3 tablespoons of rolled oats
      2 teaspoons of chia seeds
      decoration
      3 teaspoons of natural yoghurt
      raspberries, blueberries, banana slices, cashews, sesame seeds

      Mix together the rolled oats with the chia seeds, pour in some hot water and leave for 20 minutes. Wash the raspberries and drain them. Leave a few nice bits of fruit for decoration. Blend the rest of the raspberries with the rolled oats, chia seeds and honey. Put it into a small bowl. Put the natural yoghurt on top. Decorate with the banana slices, blueberries, raspberries, sesame seeds and cashews.
