Oatly Oat Drink Review🥛📝

My friend Niamh recommended trying Oatly Milk Barista Edition in porridge so I gave it a go. Apparently the Barista Edition is much nicer than the others so I will take her word for it. Oatly Oat Drink is available in Barista Edition, Organic Edition, Chocolate Edition and Orange Mango Edition. Chilled Oatly Oat Drink can be bought Whole, Semi, Skinny, Semi Organic or Chocolate Deluxe. Oatly also produces On The Go and Cooking editions, Oatgurt, as well as several ice cream flavours.

Product Name: The Original Oatly Oat Drink Barista Edition
Store purchased: Tesco Oranmore

This Oat Drink is light brown in colour and has a smooth consistency. This Oat Drink tasted good in my porridge as an alternative to regular milk or water. Once opened, this oat drink should be refrigerated and consumed within 5 days.

Tiramisu Recipe☕

Happy World Chocolate Day 🍫 My friend Niamh sent me this recipe by recipetineats and serves 6-8. There are lots of Tiramisu recipe variations online. This recipe does not use whipping cream and uses raw eggs. ‘There’s layers to this s***player, Tiramisu, Tiramisu’-Macklemore.

ingredients

  • 3 eggs (yolks and whites separated)
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 1 1/4 cups black coffee (hot and strong)
  • 2 tbsp (or more!) liquor (I used Baileys)
  • 24-30 lady fingers,pavesini or savoiardi biscuits
  • Cocoa for dusting

METHOD

  • Beat yolks and sugar using an electric whisk on speed 6 to 7 for 10 minutes or until it changes from yellow to pale yellow (almost white) and is thick.
  • Add vanilla and mascarpone, beat until just combined and smooth. Transfer mixture to a bowl, set aside.
  • Clean bowl and whisk. Add egg whites and beat until its stiff (should be all white foam)
  • Add 1/2 the cream mixture into the egg whites. Gently fold through. When most incorporated, add the remaining cream mixture and fold through until just combined- don’t bash out all the air in the egg whites!
  • Mix coffee and liquor together. Quickly dip biscuits in and line the bottom of a dish (20cm square dish or bowl).
  • Spread over half the cream, then top with another layer of coffee dipped biscuits.
  • Spread with remaining cream.
  • Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Dust with cocoa powder just before serving.

Mini pancakes Recipe🥞

This is a Tesco recipe and doesn’t take long to cook. Go wild with your favourite toppings 🍓🍐🍌🍯 I made this for brunch today. These pancakes make the perfect breakfast or after-dinner treat.

  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml semi-skilled milk
  • oil for greasing
  • toppings of your choice (I chose Big Red Kitchen Butterscotch Sauce)

Put the flour into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and about half of the milk.

Using a whisk, or wooden spoon, mix to a smooth, thick batter. You may need to add a little more milk if the batter is too thick to mix.

When the batter is smooth, gradually stir in the rest of the milk until it is well combined.

Add a small amount of oil to the frying pan; just enough to give a non-stick layer to the surface of the pan. Heat on high until the oil begins to smoke, then turn down the heat to medium.

Pour 15ml spoons of batter into the pan. This should make pancakes about 3cm in diameter.

Leave each pancake for about 30 seconds. Bubbles will appear on the surface and the mixture will start to set. Flip each pancake over using a palette knife or fish slice and leave for another 30 seconds.

I had 6 mini pancakes this morning for brunch with Butterscotch Sauce as the topping.
