When I met my wife, and she first saw how I cook, she was amazed. Because I have many difficult things done very quickly and easily.
It turned out that much of what I was doing and believed obvious, my wife saw for the first time. So I decided to gradually share these tips on his blog.
1. How fast melt butter or chocolate
In order to quickly melt the butter and chocolate, does not necessarily make the water bath and heat up on the stove. I use a microwave, but the main thing here is not to overheat the butter or chocolate.
So I I heat the butter or chocolate short pulses of 10-15 seconds. After each heating the mixture stirred and repeat the procedure. Thus oil does not "explode", and chocolate does not overheat.
2. How to bake lush biscuits, if the oven bakes bad
When a couple of years ago, I rented an apartment, there was a disgusting gas oven. Bake it something worthwhile has been extremely difficult - the cake rises unevenly, it will burn the bottom, and the top is not propechetsya. But my mom suggested to deal with this problem.
I put the oven at a temperature slightly above average, and the shape of the dough wrapping a wet towel. Due to this cake baked through evenly and well raised.
3. How to make a nice break on the cake
I love cupcakes favorite - fruitcake capital of the Soviet guests (the recipe is on the channel, leave a link at end of article). But keksovoe dough heavy and long warming. Because of this, the end of baking it bursts and often not very nice. But there is a way to avoid it.
For a beautiful break I do before baking with silicone blade to test the depth of the incision approximately 1-2 cm. Now the cake beautifully raspolzetsya along your incision.
4. How not to spoil the dish when using a water bath
This is quite a banal advice, but I still managed to spoil the few Posudin. It is not necessary in a water bath, use conventional glassware. Chances are that in the process it will crack from the temperature difference.
I'm so shattered several glass bowls from IKEA. They were made of thick glass and looked pretty strong. Last time I broke the bowl when he started to melt 1 kg of chocolate, had to throw.
5. How easily fill a pastry bag
If you rarely use a pastry bag, you must have faced the problem of how to fill it. Many are advised to wear it on the arm and then to fill, but I'm doing differently.
I put on a pastry bag on a tall glass, I have it from the blender container and then fill it.
These are the tips I have today received. Write in the comments, what non-obvious life hacking you have. I think it will be helpful to everyone.
