A late night expedition

I'd mentioned earlier that i hadnt used all the Jalapenos I'd bought from the market. I also mentioned that i have these bursts of cooking energy and tonight was one of those days. I say tonight because its 11pm at night and i have made Jalapeno poppers, the five minute cake (recipe borrowed from Miri) cleaned up and have also managed to blog about it. Oh and also, I'm waiting for Ro to get back from Amsterdam. He's on his way from the airport now :)

So with the rest of the Jalapenos , i made the poppers

Jalapeno peppers- 6 halved
Feta cheese- 1 cup, crumbled
Cheddar cheese- 1/2 cup, shredded
Pepper pwd- 1/2 tsp
Tabasco sauce- 1/4 tsp
Salt- very little as the cheese can be a bit salty

Egg- 1
Bread crumbs- enough to cover the peppers
Oil- enough to fry

De vein and de seed the halved jalapeno poppers and keep aside
In a bowl mix the rest of the ingredients well and stuff the peppers with the paste-like mix.
Beat the egg in a bowl, dip the peppers in it, roll it in the bread crumbs and fry in hot oil till both sides are brown. The cheese will ooze out when you bite into it. Yes very rich indeed!


Five Minute Choc Cake
This is not the best of chocolate cakes, but since its only five minutes away, you really wouldn't care i suppose.

All purpose flour- 4 tbs
Sugar- 4 tbs
Cocoa pwd- 2 tbs
Milk- 3 tbs
Oil- 3 tbs
Vanilla essence- a dash
Egg- 1
Baking pwd- a pinch

A coffee mug or 2 to 3 ramekins

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl without any lumps, pour into the ramekins and heat on high in a microwave for 3 minutes. The cake will rise over the top, but will settle down soon. Topple it onto a plate and dig in.

Notes: I put the ramekins on a plate so the microwave plate wont get dirty even if it spills over.
