How to bake cake using sand in a cooking pot; No Oven

Image
I have posted a cake baked without an oven earlier on the blog. However, that cake wasn't baked using sand. The baking pan was paced directly on the pot and I don't think I'll bake like that again. Using sand and foil actually maintains the pot and is neat too. This I experimented with a small sized cake and because it turned out so great, I'll bake much bigger cakes using these method in the future becaause my oven actually consumes more gas than baking in a pot on the burners. Even when one has an oven, baking in a pot with sand really saves gas because less is consumed.

These pies are so delicious by the time I entered the room and came out, only one was seen lying on the foil and the girls said they just managed to leave that one for me to have a taste of my food, Lol.

Chicken pies are a complete meal that's so filling you won't want to chew anything else after eating, especially if they are as delicious as these ones...

INGREDIENTS:

5 cups flour500g butter ( I used baking margarine)1 chicken breast ( I bought already cooked one with Drumsticks takeaway rice, ate my rice and used the chicken breast for this pie so I didn't get to buy any chicken and there was no need for boiling before using.

HOW TO BAKE WHOLE CHICKEN STUFFED WITH NIGERIAN JOLLOF RICE

Image
Whole chicken can be baked with or without stuffing. The stuffing makes them look fuller and more inviting and makes it a complete meal. To bake stuffed whole chicken, you can stuff with almost cooked rice, stir fried vegetables or other foods you enjoy eating with chicken. I used almost cooked very peppery Nigerian jollof rice for this stuffing and it's so good.  Preparation took just 5 minutes , baking took 1 hour 20 minutes because I like my chicken well cooked, you can bake for 1 hour 15 minutes and it will still be cooked inside. My oven doesn't have any readings so I preheated for about 15 minutes before putting chicken in. In a modern oven bake in a 190 degrees preheated oven. Will be served with the remaining well cooked jollof rice and some cole slaw.

Ingredients:

1 Whole chickenSaltKnorr chickenMaybe I should add ketchup because my ketchup loving girls rubbed some before putting in the oven.COOKING DIRECTIONS:

How To Bake Biscuits Like My 8 Year Old

Image
I need to learn how to bake from my girls.  Only two of the four enjoy cooking. One likes to beg others to cook for her when she's hungry, the other would rather eat cereals for lunch than cook for herself. This 8 year old is one of those kitchen loving 2. She asked for biscuits, I directed her to crackers.
Said she wanted Danish cookies and I
told her to either take my crackers or bake her cookies herself. Next thing she picked up her cookbook and entered the kitchen.
In less than 20 minutes I was called to come turn on the oven and before I said JACK, these delicious cookies were staring at me.

Nigerian Meat Pie For This Weekend, Let's indulge a little

Image
We love meat pie,the kids too, knowing a little history of these delicious pies can go a long way in helping us bake even more varieties.The beginning of the meat pie can be traced back to the Neolithic Period, around 9500 BC. The ancient Egyptians' diet featured basic pies made from oat, wheat, rye, and barley, and filled with honey and baked over hot coals. These pies were eventually adopted by the Greeks, and it is there that a flour-water paste substance closely resembling pie pastry was created and was first filled with meat. In
