Making Crumb

Milkbar cakes have 4 components:

1) Cake

2) Custard type filling

3) Crunchy stuff (crumb)

4) Icing

Making the crumb is a delicate process but it goes a little something like this.

Step 1: Mix flour,  melted butter, salt, sugar, and milk powder until they are clumpy and nubile.

#1

Step 2: Spread on a silpat (or not) and bake until “sandy” but my oven is crap so I don’t know. (BEFORE)

#2

Step 3: After baking should be “sandy”, again…. idk. (AFTER)

#3

Step 4: Add more milk powder! Then add melted white chocolate (not pictured) and stir around until coated with it and delicious. At this point i messed up and thought that melting chips in the microwave would be good enough but in the end you really need that double boiler action for candy melting. #doubleboilerz4lyfe

#4

Results: Milk Crumb (not my final result photo, as I was stressin’ about that melting life, but thanks to Mynikoneatsfood [damn what a beautiful sight *feels bad about self*] you can see the quintessential milk crumb).

Damn, this shit is dope. It goes in Milkbar cakes, or cookies, or on your lover’s body….what??

Apple Pie Layer Cake- My Growing Obsession with CHRISTINA TOSI

Momofuku Milkbar Recipe

Momofuku Milkbar Recipe-
Made with Barely Brown Butter Cake, Liquid Cheesecake, Apple Pie Filling, Pie Crumb, Pie Crumb Frosting, and Apple Cider Soak.

Ever since I cashed in on my Discover card points and bought this cook book on Amazon… my outlook on dessert has never been the same. Christina Tosi is the artist+queen of these creations- and they truly are creations. The cook book is an interesting read as well as an instructive. Thanks to this book I now have two 6 inch cake rings, a quarter sheet, and acetate sheets  (all of which were not carried anywhere in a 20 mile vicinity…like really?). I now know the importance of letting something set (and sit; not to be confused). Her crack butter sugar powerpuff girls concoction soaks itself perfectly into the body of the pastry or cake or pie and when you bite into it, it’s like your brain just created another brain and they mated and you now are able to experience a plethora of sensual tastes and smells that were previously impossible and quite frankly insane. A new era of your life has just begun.

In addition to this cake I have so far made these items:

  • Birthday Layer Cake
  • Crack Pie
  • Carrot Layer Cake
  • Brownie Pie
  • Peanut Butter Cookies
  • Blueberry and Cream Cookies
  • Volcanoes
  • Bagel Bombs

Wow. I have been so involved in eating these goods I have not blogged/taken photos of them. Oops.
