2 sliced cheese
Nori seaweed sheet

Directions:
1. Cut off the crusts of the bread and cut into quarters.
2. Spread the pizza sauce (don't apply all, just a thin layer is ok).

How to Make Kabocha Steamed Cakes for Halloween - Video Recipe

Quick and easy recipe using a frying pan. Fluffy, moist and chewy!!! You can add spices if you like ;)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2K39AWnPh8E

I used Kabocha (Japanese squash) with skin! Kabocha skin contains a lot of vitamins, so why don't you eat it!

You can replace Kabocha with sweet potato, too.



This recipe is more like cakes than buns compared to this maple steamed cakes, if you remember:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdaa6n0yxo8

---------------------------------
Kabocha Steamed Cakes

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 25min
Number of servings: about 10 thick foil cupcake liners (mine is about 3-inch-wide)

Ingredients:
100g (3.5oz) Kabocha (Japanese squash) with skin
A
* 2 eggs
* 100g (3.5oz) brown sugar
* 4 tbsp. cooking oil
B
* 150g (5.3oz.) cake flour (I think all purpose flour is ok)
* 2 tsp. baking powder

Directions:
1. Dice Kabocha into 1/2inch (1cm) pieces.
2. Mix A in a bowl.
3. Sift in B and mix with a spatula just until blended. Then mix in diced Kabocha.
4. Spoon the mixture into the thick foil cupcake liners up to 80% full. Drop them lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter.
5. Place them in a frying pan. Add 200ml hot water and put on high heat until water boils. Turn the heat down to low, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
6. Remove the lid carefully to prevent the water from dripping onto the cakes. Place the cakes on a wire rack to cool.

((Kabocha Custard))
1. Wrap Kabocha with plastic wrap and microwave at 600w for 8 minutes. Scoop out the Kabocha flesh with a spoon. Then strain through a strainer.

4. Mix in the warm milk mixture (4.) into the egg mixture (3.). Add the mixture into the mashed Kabocha. Then strain through a strainer to make it smooth.
5. Pour the mixture over the caramel in the cake pan.
((Bake))
1. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F).
2. Place the cake pan on a baking sheet. Pour some hot water (half the height) into the baking sheet. Bake at 170C (338F) for 50 minutes.
3. Place it on a wire rack to cool and put in the fridge until cold. Flip it over onto a plate to serve.

Note: You can grease the pan with some oil or butter so the pudding will slip out easily.

How to Make Shiratama Worms for Halloween - Video Recipe

This is a fun Wagashi (Japanese confectionery) idea for halloween!!!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owrIhzg424w

It tastes just like Dango (Japanese sweet dumplings).
I hope you like this idea :)



---------------------------------
Shiratama Worms

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 25min
Number of servings: 20 worms

Ingredients:
50g (1.8oz.) Shiratamako (lumpy glutinous rice flour)
1/2 tsp. Matcha green tea powder
50ml~ water
Kinako (soybean flour) *finely chopped nuts are okay
Kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup) *honey is okay

Directions:
1. Put Shiratamako, Matcha and water in a bowl and knead the dough with your hand until smooth. Adjust the texture by adding more Shiratamako or water until the dough turns as soft as your earlobe.
2. Form the dough into worm-like small strips.
3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Gently drop Shiratama worms in the boiling water. After a few minutes, Shiratama worms will float to the surface. Boil for another 1-2 minutes. Then remove from the boiling water and transfer into cold water (to cool and remove the slimy texture). After a minute, drain well.
4. Place Kinako and Kuromitsu on a plate or in a flat container, then place the worms on top.

*You can store the Dumplings in the freezer. When you eat, defrost at room temperature OR microwave OR cook in boiling water.
*You can store the Dumplings in the fridge for 3 hours but they can easily get hard, so I don't recommend it.

80g (2.8oz.) granulated sugar
2 eggs *room temperature
2 tbsp. soymilk or milk
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
A
* 120g (4.2oz.) cake flour
* 1&1/2 tbsp. matcha green tea powder
* 1/2 tsp. baking powder
chocolate pens *you can draw 2 Frankensteins with 1 pen

Directions:
1. Line the loaf pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Mix A and sift them together if you have time.
2. Cream the butter in a large bowl with a wire whisk. Add 80g (2.8oz.) granulated sugar little by little and mix well.
3. Separate egg whites and egg yolks. Add the egg yolks one by one and mix well. Then add soymilk and mix well.
4. Make meringue in a separate bowl: Whip egg whites with an electric mixer until foamy. Gradually add granulated sugar 1/3 at a time, then continue to whip until stiff glossy peaks form when you lift the beaters.
5. Add 1/3 of the meringue into the butter mixture (3.), and blend well with a spatula.
6. Sift in A and fold in with a spatula. Then add the rest of the meringue and fold in gently but thoroughly.
7. Pour the batter into the pan and smooth the top. Drop the pan lightly on the counter to raise the air bubbles out of the batter. Use the spatula to cut an incision lengthwise down middle of cake to prevent unwanted cracks on the surface.
8. Bake at 180C (350F) for 15 minutes. Then turn down to 160C (320F) and bake for 35-40 minutes. *Cover the cake with aluminum foil if it starts to brown too much. Insert a stick into the cake to check whether it is baked or not.
9. Remove the cake from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.
10. Slice the pound cake. Set a chocolate pen in a cup of hot water for a few minutes. Cut the tip of the chocolate pen and draw Frankenstein faces on pound cake slices.

* When the cake is completely cool, wrap tightly in plastic wrap. It will last wrapped this way for few days (in the fridge).
* You can also wrap each slices of pound cake individually with a plastic wrap.

I know there are many scary eyeball deviled eggs on the Net but I like cute ones XD


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1sfkgNCD5k

Deviled eggs are hard-boiled eggs, cut in half and filled with seasoned hard-boiled eggs' yolk. Deviled eggs are usually served cold. It is a great holiday or party food!



Very easy and fun last-minute Halloween recipe ;)

---------------------------------
Halloween Jack-O'-Lantern Deviled Eggs

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 12

Ingredients:
6 eggs
A
* 2 tbsp. (30g=1oz.) drained canned tuna
* 2 tbsp. finely-chopped onion
* 3 tbsp. mayonnaise
* 1 tsp. sugar
* 2 tsp. vinegar
* salt and pepper
paprika powder
12 toasted pumpkin seeds
nori sheet

Directions:
1. To make hard-boiled eggs, use older eggs because they are easier to peel. Place the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Cover with water at least an inch above the eggs. Put on high heat, gently, stir constantly (in this way, you can center the egg yolks), until water boils. When the water comes to a full boil, turn off the heat and cover the pan with a lid with no holes. Set a timer and let them steam in the hot water for about 15 minutes. Drain the eggs and cool immediately in cold water. Shake the pan to break the shells. Then peel.
2. Cut hard-boiled eggs into halves lengthwise. Gently remove the egg yolks, place them in a bowl, and mash them using a fork.
3. Mix A in a bowl, add the mashed egg yolks, and mix until smooth.
4. Transfer the mixture in a plastic bag or a pastry bag, cut off the corner of the bag to create a hole, then pipe it into egg white halves.
5. Sprinkle with paprika powder. Cut out nori sheet for the eyes, noses, and mouths of Jack-O'-Lantern faces. Attach the nori faces and pumpkin seeds on the eggs.

Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
