Getting fat with the exams!

*ARgh* the Munchies!! It's unfortunate that I am convinced I am able to bake a batch of cookies faster than a quick trip to the gym! *sigh* The exam's better be over soon. I need to start off with damage control A.S.A.P!
Crunchy Choc Chip Cookies.
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup corn oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp salt
4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg + oil+ milk. Fold in dry ingredients with a wooden spoon. Chocolate chips last. Spoon teaspoons full of batter onto a baking sheet and bake in 190 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops brown.
I made a variation of double chocolate ones as well. Divide the mixture into half and add 1 heaped tbsp of cocoa powder into the batter. Mix well to combine. Bake as usual.
Back to the books for me! *sticks a cookie into mouth* MmMMmmmm...Evil!! * sob!*

Hi. I stumbled across your lovely blog a couple of days ago, and I really like it! Thanks for sharing such lovely recipes.

I recently had something delicious called a Chocolate Brulee Tart in a cafe in Newtown, but haven't been able to find any recipes for it. Any chance you might be able to figure out how to make it? The chocolate in the middle didn't just taste like chocolate custard, but tasted a bit nutty and didn't really have a custard-like texture...

hey, glad you like my recipes..
About the tart...it looks quite interesting; do you know what texture the center had? and What is the top and bottom made of?
It's strange why its called a Brulee tart; when it doesn't have custard in it.

I defeinately need to eat it to try to make it! Haha can't tell by just looking at the picture. I'm not too far from newtown; might just pop by, when my exams are over

Haha. I realise you can't make it just by looking at the picture. :)

If I remember correctly, the center was moist, and seemed like it could be finely ground nuts with a chocolate flavour.

I hadn't really had anything like it before, and it was one of the best desserts I've had recently. It was from that cafe next to the Dendy, if you want to check it out. :)

can we substitute the corn oil with ordinary oil?ie sunflower oil maybe?

Su-Yin said...

i realize that this was posted long long time ago. But I just came across it and wanted to comment about the chocolate brulee tart. "brulee" actually means "Burnt" So Creme Brulee actually means "Burnt Cream". So just because it has Brulee in the name, it doesn't mean that there is custard in the tart. FYI.

Su-Yin said...

but...this was a cookie...:S..i dont think I've made chocolate tarts b4
