As an enterprising Not Quite Hufflepuff, for my own amusement, I decided to collect the recipes that the House Elf Liaison brought to us straight from the kitchens, in a word document. Since I'm already
copying and pasting them, I've been asked by the powers that be to assist the Liaison by posting recipes here to the blog :-D And so, we have our first recipes!
First, a throwback from our own Bijou3owl: Five Minute Mug Brownie!
- 4 Tbs Flour
- 2 Tbs Sugar
- 2 Tbs Cocoa Powder
- 2 Tbs Veggie Oil
- 2 Tbs Water
- Dash of Salt
Combine dry ingredients in a mug. Add wet and mix well. Microwave aprox. 1 min. The middle should still be a bit liquidy, though you can microwave a little more (15s-30s, depending on your microwave) if you like. She likes to add chocolate chips after it’s done, and a splash of vanilla with the wet ingredients.
The house elves have developed Five Minute Strawberry Ice Cream to go with it!
- 10 ounce package frozen sliced strawberries (or frozen fruit of your choice)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup heavy cream (half and half, lowfat milk, or even soymilk work too, it just isn’t as creamy)
Combine the frozen fruit and sugar in a food processor or blender. Process until the fruit is roughly chopped. With the processor running, slowly pour in the heavy cream until fully mixed. Yum! If liquid nitrogen is in short supply, a quick stash in the freezer will help the ice cream to firm up.
