Off .... No

No, no holiday here, just being very bizzy.
Some builders in the house to make the windows larger in bedroom and bathroom.
And a birthday on the other side of the Netherlands.

So not much cooking, exept the normal recipes.
I tried one new, which was - according my parents and family-  to die for.
So when I have time (maybe on work break) I'll write it down.
Oooo, we ate FishPie :)

Egg replacer

I  usually use NoEgg as replacer, but here are some other options:

• 1 egg = 2 tbsp potato starch
• 1 egg = 1/4 cup mashed potatoes
• 1 egg = 1/4 cup canned pumpkin or squash
• 1 egg = 1/4 cup puréed prunes
• 1 egg = 2 tbsp water + 1 Tbsp. oil + 2 tsp. baking powder
• 1 egg = 1 tbsp ground flax seed simmered in 3 Tbsp. water
• 1 egg white = 1 Tbsp. plain agar powder dissolved in 1 Tbsp. water, whipped, chilled, and whipped again

Banana Cupcakes (eggfree / dairyfree)

1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 bananas, ripe
¾ cup sugar
1 egg (replacer, I use NoEgg, for other option see other post)
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt, mix a little with a fork.
In an other bowl: Mash bananas with sugar, egg-replacer , water and oil in a large bowl.
Mix in the flour mixture until smooth. Pour batter into a cupcake pan.

Option: you can replace the bananas with pears

Crispy Coconut Chicken (eggfree)

I was searching the internet to find some nice coconut chicken bits, with a nice crust, but egg free.
I found several options, but I decided to go with applesauce (yes, you read it right, applesauce J)

Normally for cupcakes I almost follow the recipe as it’s written. With cooking it’s a bit this, little bit of that.

I made it like this:
1 chicken breast
1 - 1 ½  tsp salt
½ - 1 tsp pepper
1 tbsp garlic
1 - 1 ½  cups breadcrumbs
½ cup coconut
1 ½ cups applesauce

Cut your chicken in nice bits. Take 2 bowls, one for your applesauce, one for all the other ingredients (mix well with fork.)
Meanwhile put your pan on the fire (you could also grill this).
Then, take your chicken, dip it under in the applesauce and then dip it in de coconut mixture (be sure every spot is covered) then cook/grill it, don’t forget to turn on time.

Enjoy J
