Maya Kitchen shared its featured August recipes that housewives like myself can experiment on and maybe venture into a small food business with. I would love to try these two particular recipes and maybe add to the list of the stuff I bake on a daily basis. Looks easy enough.
1 package choice of any Maya Hotcake Mix 200g (Original “Fluffy and Tasty,” Chocolate or Whole Wheat)
½ cup butter
½ cup sugar
Preheat griddle or teflon coated pan. Prepare preferred hot cake mix as per package direction. Pour 1 tablespoon of hotcake mixture on griddle pan. Cook both sides. Set aside and cool down. Get one piece of cooked hotcake and brush with butter on both sides then coat with sugar. Do the same procedure with the remaining hotcakes, arrange on cookie sheets then bake in a preheated oven of 350°F/ 177°C for 20 minutes about 10 minutes on each sides until toasted.
Yield: 20-25 pieces per package
1 tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup warm water
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 piece egg
¼ cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ½ cups Maya All-Purpose Flour blended with
1 cup Maya Cake Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup Maya All-Purpose Flour
oil for deep fat frying
flavored shake powder (pandan, ube, melon, or strawberry)
Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in half of the water. Set aside. In a bowl, combine remaining water, ½ cup sugar, salt, egg, melted butter, vanilla, half of the flour blend mixture and the baking powder. Add yeast and continue adding enough flour blend until mixture leaves the sides of the bowl.
Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead, adding in remaining flour for dusting, until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl and allow to rise for 30 to 40 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into 8-inch log or cylinder. Rest until double in bulk.
Heat oil in a deep saucepan. Fry doughnuts until golden brown. Drain and coat with flavored shake powder of your choice or just coat with plain powdered sugar or with your favorite glaze.
Yield: 16 pieces
These easy to do “negosyo” recipes might just be the ticket to a successful small business or even earn you some trophies and awards in the future. I’ve been selling my baked goodies since I was in college every Christmas season. Whoever knows this might just be it. I’m looking forward to try these Mini hotcakes baked into mini toasts and colorful bicho-bicho bread recipes. I will post my very own version when I do.
