A picnic with Chinese yam bread 長芋のケーキ




I like to search and try easy bread and cupcake recipes. These are very convenient for a breakfast, a snack and a picnic.
Today's recipe is a chinese yam bread. This bread does use no sugar, no egg and no oil. But we can feel a moist texture and natural sweetness of dried fruits and nuts. My husband doesn't have an interest in vegetarian meal so much, but he likes this bread.

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl, beat the grated yam liquid 350g until fluffy like a egg white with a pinch of salt. Combine the minced raisins 50g (you can soak raisins in water or orange juice for soft and texture) and roasted and minced walnuts 100g in the bowl and mix well. Add the all-purpose flour 1cup and cinnamon powder 1/2tsp to the mixture and stir it gently. Then keep the form of yam. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan which is greased. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. And bake for 200F to 10 minutes or less until the surface become golden brown.

Some slices of this bread, a coffee pot, news papers and blankets are our happy picnic equipments.

外へ出かけました。Count down to Spring



Sometimes I go to walking to parks, especially spring is a good season for it. When I walk without my husband, I use my i-Pod for a meditation. Then I try to concentrate my breathing and stride. I imagine as my feet soak up the vitality of the earth. Also I imagine as the energy comes down to the top of my head too. Taking the rhythm of walking, my mind is tuned to musics which come to my ears from i-Pod. And I and musics become together, I feel like myself is filled and empty. It's a little strange feeling. The sweetness of plants that I feel then.

Spring is a good season that I can have a strong bond with this world, an earth.

God always knows I hope, and he prepares it for me. I think so.

Brown rice porridge cake 玄米おかゆパン



Today I baked a brown rice porridge cake. This is very easy and hearty cake. You just prepare the rest brown rice you ate last night, water, a little bit salt, minced vegetables which you like, minced nuts like almonds and walnuts, and some flours.

In a pressure cooker, put the rice, salt, vegetables and water. After 20 minites cooking on the pressure, leave the pan until the pressure comes out and the liquid gets warm (not hot). Into the warm liquid, add whole grain flour, all purpose flour and nuts. And mix well. Then the mixed dough is not so soft but not hard.

And you can bake this dough on bread loaf pan and baking dish (you need some oil for pan) or no pan (if you don't use pans for baking, you may have to need some more flour for making a shape) soon. I bake it about 30 minutes 400F and 10 minutes 475F until the surface becomes golden brown.
