Rescuers Down Under – Pea Soup, Boiled Eggs, [Bonus] Hedgehog Slice

Quick links: Pea Soup | Boiled Eggs[Bonus] Hedgehog Slice | Verdict

 

Rescuer’s Down Under was one of my very favorite movies as a kid. I really wanted to be Cody and scale giant walls in Australia to save HUGE eagles. Watching it again made me relive all my childhood fantasies. I always remembered the food in this. PEA SOUP! I quote this line too often.

 

Pea Soup!

Right after Cody gets caught, we see a fancy restaurant for humans, then on the chandelier, there’s a rodent section, complete with cricket waiters. One of the humans drop a pea, which is picked up by one of the bugs and given to the bug chef.

Pea soup is now on the menu. 
I had never made pea soup before. We don’t see what is already in the thimble the chef uses to make the pea soup, so I took some liberties in this recipe, assuming that he got some other items that humans might have dropped.

Not Joanna Eggs

One of the best scenes in the movie is when Joanna is stealing the poacher’s eggs.

To make this super realistic, I would have to swallow a whole uncooked egg. I’m not sure if I can physically do that, so I opted to make a hardboiled egg and eat that.

To make good hardboiled eggs, put the eggs in a pot and cover with about an inch of water. Make sure you don’t overcrowd the pot with eggs. Bring the water to a roaring boil. Once it reaches the boil, turn the heat to a low and let it simmer, covered for 10-12 minutes. Strain the water and let the eggs sit in cold water for at least another 10-12 minutes before serving.  I also found this handy chart of what the eggs look like at certain cook times.

Joanna is also shown eating animal crackers.

Animal crackers aren’t really a recipe, but it prompted me to make an Aussie dessert. Hedgehog Slice. It’s basically a fudge-type food with biscuits (or animal crackers) inside.

Will it make you Soar with Marahute?

So, I think I overseasoned the pea soup. The recipe provided is less seasoned. Needless to say, I wasn’t too happy with it. However, I LOVED the hedgehog slice. It was delicious and probably VERY fattening.

Verdict:

Pea Soup – 5/10

Joana’s Egg – 6/10

Hedgehog Slice – 9/10

Les poissons, les poissons! How I love les poissons. Love to chop and to serve little fish. First I cut off their heads, then I pull out their bones. Ah mais oui, ca c’est toujours délice.

Little Mermaid is one of the Disney all-time greats. It has some great food too if you’re a seafood lover. So become a nasty fish-killer and check out all the food from Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

Sebastian’s Crab Meat

For a French cook that is employed by royalty, I really question his cooking methods. Maybe there’s something I don’t know and if anyone has more info on his cooking style, let me know.  But when the chef finds Sebastian, he throws Sebastian in a sauce and then flour,

(Credit: Disney)

(Credit: Disney)

as if he was preparing to fry him. It is like he’s breading him for frying or baking in the oven. But instead, he stuffs him

(Credit: Disney)

(Credit: Disney)

and he throws Sebastian in a pot of boiling water, where the flour and sauce would just come off.

(Credit: Disney)

(Credit: Disney)

So we followed the same pathway as Sebastian did.

Baguettes and Wedding Cake

We have made baguettes and wedding cake before, as it was shown on Little Mermaid. So for those recipes, check out Pinocchio for the baguette and Lady and the Tramp for the Wedding Cake. 

 


Will it Make you use a Dinglehopper?

Sadly, we don’t really love shellfish and crustaceans except for shrimp. So we weren’t too crazy about the crab. But crab lovers will hopefully love it., The shrimp was good and the fish was great.

Fire up some Billy Joel and get ready for some NYC action. I actually really like Oliver and Company, even though it is one of Disney’s lowest rated films. It also has really great food, especially if you’re a cat or dog!

I searched and found that Carob, a chocolate substitute, and its cleared by ASPCA as non-toxic for dogs. So we made some molded chocolates filled with peanut butter. Our dog loved them!  We also made some milk-chocolate candies for us too 🙂

  3. 3 tbs peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Heat up the milk over a very low heat
  2. Add the carob chips a little bit at a time
  3. Stir vigorously with wooden spoon.
  4. Once all the chips are added, you might need to add a couple more splashes of milk until the carob is creamy
  5. Let the carob cool a bit
  6. Fill candy mold 1/2-3/4 way full with the carob
  7. Place peanut butter in a pastry bag (or a plastic bag with its corner cut)
  8. Squeeze a little dab of peanut butter on top of the carob in each mold. About the size of a big pea.
  9. Cover the peanut butter and fill rest of mold with carob
  10. Place in freezer for about an hour or until the carob solidifies. You may also place in fridge, but wait longer for the solidification.
Notes
  1. You might need to hold the pan off the stove a bit if it gets too hot and you start to smell it burn.
  2. For milk chocolate, melt the milk chocolate in a microwave on a low heat, stirring every 30 seconds, or melt in a double boiler. Follow the rest of the instructions. You may place anything you wish in the middle of the chocolates. I put in Nutella and raspberry jam.

Pink Champagne Cake

At the end of the movie, everything is good and every is around Jenny as they celebrate her birthday.

vlcsnap-2015-08-09-20h15m04s035

Being super rich, she probably had a fancy cake (even though you only see a generic pink cake). How do you make a fancy cake? With champagne of course! This is a somewhat difficult and time consuming recipe. Just a head’s up.

There is also chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream shown in the movie. This cake pair well with Neapolitan ice cream! So pick some of that up from the store.

For the Champagne Reduction
  1. 2 cups (480 ml) champagne, pink champagne or sparkling wine
For the Champagne Velvet Layer Cake
  1. 2½ cups (280 grams) sifted Self-Rising Flour
  2. 2 cups (400 grams) granulated sugar
  3. ½ cup (1 stick/113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  4. ¼ cup (48 grams) shortening
  5. ¼ cup (56 grams) vegetable oil
  6. ½ cup (120 ml) champagne reduction
  7. ½ cup (120 ml) buttermilk, at room temperature
  8. ¾ cup (180 grams) egg whites (about 6), at room temperature
  9. ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) pure almond extract
  10. ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) pure vanilla extract
  11. Extra flour and shortening to prepare cake pans
  12. 1 cup raspberry jam
  13. 2 containers of buttercream frosting
  14. Red food coloring to dye the frosting
Prepare the Champagne Reduction
  1. In a medium heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, bring champagne to a boil.
  2. Boil until reduced to ½ cup, about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; set aside to cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, arrange oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 350ºF.
  5. Grease three 8-inch round with shortening or oil.
  6. Line bottoms with parchment or wax paper cut to fit the size of pans.
  7. Grease paper linings and dust lined pans with flour, tapping out the excess.
  8. Set aside.
Prepare the Champagne Velvet Layer Cake
  1. Mix self-rising flour and sugar until well combined and aerated.
  2. Add butter, shortening and oil and mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Mixture will be very thick.
  4. In a 2-cup glass liquid measuring cup, whisk together champagne reduction, buttermilk, egg whites and extracts using a fork until well blended.
  5. Slowly add half of the liquid mixture to the batter and mix.
  6. Then beat until thoroughly combined, scraping down the sides of bowl as necessary with rubber spatula, about 2 minutes.
  7. Add remaining liquid mixture and beat just until smooth and thoroughly combined, again scraping down the sides of bowl as necessary.
  8. Using rubber spatula, scrape and pour batter into prepared pans dividing evenly (a little over 2 cups of batter per cake pan).
  9. Smooth tops evenly with rubber spatula and then rap each pan on counter surface 2 to 3 times to expel any air bubbles. This step will create a nice level cake.
  10. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  11. Cool cakes in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes.
  12. Run thin metal spatula around edges of each cake to loosen, then invert onto wire rack and peel away parchment or wax paper.
  13. Turn right side up onto wire racks (using an additional rack to flip) and cool completely or wrap while still warm to retain moisture.
  14. Wrap each cake layer tightly in plastic food wrap and keep at room temperature until ready to fill and frost.
To Assemble, Frost and Fill the Cake
  1. Mix a couple drops of food coloring into the frosting to turn it into a nice pink color.
  2. Use a scant ¾ cup frosting between each layer.
  3. After frosting each the bottom and middle layer, pipe a simple ¼-inch border of buttercream around the perimeter of the cake to act as a dam to prevent the filling from going over the edge of the cake layer.
  4. Following this, lightly spoon about 4 tablespoons of the Raspberry Filling on top of the buttercream in the center. Using a small angled metal spatula, carefully spread the filling outward to the dam border of buttercream.
  5. Carefully place the next cake layer on top and press down gently.
  6. Proceed to frost the cake as desired with remaining buttercream.
To Make a Rose Cake with “Rose Swirls”
  1. Use a scant ¾ cup frosting between each layer and then proceed to frost the cake with a “crumb coat” or thin coat, but not too thin.
  2. The cake should have good coverage and you should not see the cake peeking through the frosting.
  3. Next, assemble your pastry bag with coupler and tip.
  4. Fill pastry bag and twist closed.
  5. Make sure your hands are not too warm or your buttercream will get too soft. You are now ready to pipe roses!
  6. To pipe roses, start at the bottom and work around the cake to complete a full circle of roses. T
  7. o pipe each rose, start in the center of where you want your rose to be. T
  8. hen pipe in a circular fashion counter-clockwise going around the center point once or twice depending on the size of roses you desire.
  9. The roses don’t need to be perfect!
  10. This is what is so great about piping swirled roses as they look lovely shabby and chic.
  11. It is best to end in the same place each time and I like to end at the top right side of each rose.
  12. Once you complete the first row around the cake, continue with the next row and then the top. To fill in any gaps, I like to pipe small stars or flourishes that contour the rose swirls. Rose Cakes are the best. So simple, but so stunning!

Will it make you get the Street Saviore Faire?

Overall, this was a really good haul. Hot Dogs were great, the cake was one of the best cakes I’ve ever had, and if you were a cat, I’m sure you’d love the concoction. The dog chocolates were pretty disgusting for humans. I don’t really like carob. But my dog loved them. But the milk chocolate candies were amazing.

The Great Mouse Detective – Tea and Crumpets, (Root) Beer

Quick links: Tea and Crumpets | (Root) Beer | Verdict

 

Disney’s take on Sherlock Holmes may not Bendaduck Cumberbottom worthy, but it’s still great. We have the classic British tea and crumpets shown as well as some beer (which isn’t uncommon in Disney). However, I decided to skip eating a mouse like Ratigan’s cat does.

They also show lots of tea. I don’t drink tea, but if you want to make proper English tea, check out this site. 

When I made the crumpets, I actually missed the fact that they were cheese crumpets. But I’m sure if you add a cup of grated cheddar, it’d turn out great. However, even without the cheese, they were great.

Of course, we’re keeping this a kid friendly blog, so we decided to make Root Beer! BUUUUUUUUUT, we hit a snag. First, I didn’t realize how hard it was to get dry ice where I live. Then I found a recipe to make Root Beer with yeast. So I went and got yeast and I was going to get root beer extract, but I couldn’t find any root beer extract! I didn’t have enough time to go somewhere else, so I wasn’t able to make the root beer. I’m sorry if I let you guys down. But here’s a recipe.
