DoubleTree Cookie Pancakes
DoubleTree by Hilton Tower of London'sHead Chef Charlie Hilton created a delectable recipe for sweet chocolate chip cookie pancakes using the DoubleTree by Hilton cookie. To make it at home:
135g. plain flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. caster sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
A good handful of Chocolate Chips
A large pinch of cinnamon
2 tbsp. melted butter (allowed to cool slightly) or olive oil, plus extra for cooking
Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, caster sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter (any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing), then add the chocolate chips. TIP: Let the batter stand for a few minutes.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it's melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem very thick but this is how it should be.
Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm (½in) thick.
Repeat until all the batter is used up. TIP: You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out the pan.
Serve with crushed cookies and real maple syrup!
DoubleTree Cookie Tarts
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Guangzhouserves warm egg tarts, a famous dessert treat from South China, which have been re-invented to use the Doubletree by Hilton Cookie as the base of the tarts to create a decadent and delicious twist on a local favorite. To make them at home:
Ingredients for crust:
225 gm. plain flour
125 gm. butter
55 gm. icing sugar
100gm Chocolate Chips
1 egg, whisked
1 dash vanilla extract
Ingredients for custard:
110 gm. caster sugar
225 gm. hot water
85 gm. evaporated milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Directions for crust:
Place butter at room temperature until softened. Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer over medium speed until the mixture is smooth, fluffy and light in color.
Add in whisked egg, half at a time, beat over low speed. Add vanilla extract, mix well.
Sift in flour and chocolate chips, scraping down the sides of the bowl between additions with a spatula, and make sure all ingredients combine well. Knead into dough.
Roll out the dough to a 1/2 cm thickness. Cut dough with a cookie cutter that is just a bit smaller than your tart tin in size. Line dough in the middle of tart tins, one by one. Lightly press the dough with your thumbs, starting from the bottom then up to the sides. While pressing the dough, turn the tart tin clockwise/anti-clockwise in order to make an even tart shell. Trim away any excess dough.
Directions for custard:
Add sugar into hot water, mix until completely dissolved.
Whisk egg with evaporated milk. Pour in sugar water. Mix well.
Sift egg mixture to get rid of any foam into a tea pot. Carefully pour egg mixture into each tart shell.
Directions for baking tarts:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Position rack in lower deck of oven. Bake tarts for 10 to 15 minutes until the edges are lightly brown.
Lower the heat to 180 degrees Celsius. Keep an eye on them. Once you see the custard being puffed up a bit, pull the oven door open about 2 to 3 inches. Bake for another 10 to 15 minutes until the custard is cooked through. Just insert a toothpick into the custard. If it stands on its own, it's done.
