Apple pastries are something that you either love or hate. I must admit that I have always gone through phases with them and at the moment I want them whenever I can. I have had the little ones that they sell at McDonald’s, the homemade ones that my mother makes way too much white sugar and then there is this one that I make myself.
It is not as low in calories as some things on this blog, but it’s not bad considering what you are making. We at Bread Love BKNY added this dessert to our menu.
Preheat your oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Divide the pastry into 4 portions, and then roll each into an 8 x 10cm rectangle.
Put the rectangles, widely spaced, on the baking tray and using a sharp knife, score a border about 5mm in from the edge of each.
Spread the custard over the pastry and arrange the apple slices on top.
Sprinkle with the cinnamon and ginger and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the sides of the pastries have puffed up and are slightly golden.
Put the jam in a small pan and stir over a low heat for 2-3 minutes until melted. Lightly brush each pastry with the melted jam then serve warm, dusted with icing sugar and with some of the fromage frais.
Keeping your Microwave Convection Oven clean is important if you don’t want it to stop working or provide a really weird taste or smell of your food.
Microwave ovens get dirty real fast if you use them regularly as you place the food inside and then take it out once it is done which is why it is important to make sure that you clean it once every week.
Make sure that you remove any food bits that have stuck in the oven and clean up any burns or spills that might cover your oven. Just follow these simple steps to clean your stainless steel microwave oven in no time at all!
Step 1: Wipe down the exterior
A stainless steel exterior gives a modern finish to your oven but it is also quite prone to get dirty. You can see the dirt, food bits, fingerprints, etc. being stuck on your stainless steel oven. Since a stainless steel oven comes with a glossy exterior, if you don’t clean it properly then you might end up scratching the surface.
However, it is quite easy to clean a stainless steel exterior. All you have to do is take a clean rag and then dampen it a little with water and then use it to remove the dirt from the surface. Make sure you use a nonabrasive rag for your stainless steel surface.
Step 2: Scrub with vinegar
Once that is done, then you can dip your rag into a vinegar solution and then use it to scrub your oven free of any dirt or food bits.
All you need to do is dip your rag into pure white vinegar and then scrub the oven surface, you can also use a commercial stainless steel cleaner in place of a vinegar solution. Popularised by KitchenGuyd, this nifty trick does it every time.
Step 3: Soak the dirt
A lot of times the grime or the food bits that are stuck on your oven could be a little hard to clean with just a simple scrub. However, there is nothing to worry about because you have a simple and efficient way to clean that dirt.
Just place your cleaner soaked rag or vinegar soaked rag over the stubborn dirt for 5-10 minutes. Once the dirt particles loosen then you can wipe it clean with the rag.
Step 4: Wipe down with clean rag
Once you have removed all the dirt using vinegar or commercial cleaner solution, it is time to rinse the surface of the oven. You can rinse your rag with clean water and then use it to wipe down the oven to remove any cleaner residue. Then use a dry rag to wipe the oven dry.
Step 1: Use olive oil
Once your oven is clean and dry, you can restore its shine with the help of olive oil. Just dampen one corner of the rag with olive oil and then use it to remove any remaining streaks on your stainless steel exterior and bring back its metallic shine. This is a great way to make your oven look as good as new.
