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

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??

Black Bottom Banoffee Pie

This pie was interesting, but difficult to make. Instagram photo sesh.

Hand grinding cardamom for the pie. I mixed sugar into it to help grind. Strong spice, use sparingly.

Hand ground pretzels for crust.

98% dark was too dark, it made the pie very bitter. Try milk chocolate.

What a hot mess. Couldn't make it with condensed milk. I'm officially terrible at making caramel! This is a bag of melted caramels with a little cream. Too chewy.

White chocolate for the whipped topping. Delicious, but much too heavy for the cream. Also I had to buy a replacement whisk, terrible.

Finished product. Will not make it again. 😦
