Quick and Easy Recipe to Make Cake Without Eggs

I came up with this recipe by myself recently by attempting some experimental baking recipes inbetween jobs getting dinner ready, and basically just winged it to see what would happen, after wondering if it was possible to make a cake without eggs.

The result turned out quite well, so I am writing it down here for the benefit of anybody who wants to make cake when they are short of ingredients, or they want cake but have an egg allergy, or they have other weird eating habits such as being a vegan.

Just like cooking anything else, the first 2 jobs you need to do is wash your hands properly before you start, and to turn the oven on to pre-heat it so that it is at the correct temperature by the time you’re ready to baked.

You’ll need to set the oven to 230°C (446°F, so call it 450°F-ish) to bake this thing. Continue reading “Quick and Easy Recipe to Make Cake Without Eggs”

How to Tell if Milk is Bad

One question I used to frequently see on Question and Answer websites such as the now defunct Yahoo Answers were ones about how to tell if milk is bad, as well as how long after the expiry date can you drink milk.

This article is here to try to give you a clear answer on how to tell if milk is bad, and probably best not to drink.

The most obvious way is to simply look at the label on the container, but even that is no guarantee it is still safe to. In my past experience I have found it is not unheard of for milk to expire a couple of days before the expiry date on the container. Usually just after I have put it on my cereal and it tastes weird.

Home Cooking Trends 2023

I remember seeing somewhere recently that cooking air fryer recipes in an air fryer kitchen gadget has apparently fallen out of favour.

In it’s place the humble old microwave is apparently the new money saving cooking trend. There are many good ones available from brands such as Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba and Sharp.

Before these, the cooking trend was Sous Vide Recipes using a Sous Vide machine gadget that looks like a glorified fish tank heater.

If I remember correctly before that, the cooking trend was for a multi-cooker kitchen gadget that looked like a glorified slow cooker, and you could indeed make slow cooker recipes in the things. Continue reading “Home Cooking Trends 2023”

How to Cook Rice

Stuff Needed:

  • Long Grain Rice (about half a cup per person is usually enough)
  • Medium / large-ish saucepan
  • Water
  • Salt

tip: I prefer to use “Tilda Easy cook long grain rice” when doing rice, as it doesn’t go too sticky / PVA glue-like if you accidently leave it cooking too long (unlike some of the cheaper supermarket own-label packets of long grain rice). Uncle Ben’s was good too (until it’s woke name change).
