Filipino Recipes - Suman Moron (Dessert) Recipe - Pinoy Food

Suman Moron originated from Leyte, an island in the Visayas. It is a popular Filipino dessert served during fiestas and other special occasions. Luckily, I don't have to wait for any special celebrations to taste this delicacy because these are commonly sold outside the church during Sundays.

This recipe makes about 30 pieces of Suman Moron 4-inches long each.



  • 2 cups glutinous rice flour
  • 6 cups ordinary rice flour
  • 2 kilos grated coconut meat
  • 1 big can evaporated milk
  • ½ kilo white (refined) granulated sugar
  • 1 kilo muscovado sugar
  • 30 chocolate tableya, melted with 1/4 cup water
  • 1 bar cheddar cheese (julienned)
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1 small bottle vanilla extract
  • 8 cups boiling water
  • about 30 pieces banana leaves, cut into rectangles (8″x10″)

Filipino Recipes - Suman Moron (Dessert) Recipe - Pinoy Food

Cooking Instructions:

  • In a basin, place the grated coconut meat and pour boiling water. Set aside. (Note: 8 cups of canned coconut milk can be used as alternative.)
  • Mix the 2 types of flour well until thoroughly incorporated. Divide the flour mixture equally into two parts.
  • Squeeze the grated meat when the coconut mixture is already cool enough to handle. Use a fine strainer to separate the coconut milk. Divide the coconut milk equally into two parts.
  • In a thick-bottomed pan, place ½ of the flour mixture and pour in one part coconut milk, muscovado sugar, melted chocolate, vanilla extract and peanuts. Mix well and place over medium heat. Keep on stirring while cooking the mixture. At first, uneven lumps will form. But as you keep stirring, the mixture will even out as it thickens. Turn off the heat when oil starts to come out. Set aside to cool.
  • To the second half of flour mixture, add the remaining coconut milk. Then pour about half of the white sugar and the evaporated milk. Mix thoroughly. Place in a separate pan and cook over medium heat while stirring continuously. Remove from the heat when the mixture is thickened. Set aside to cool.
  • Pass the banana leaves over the heat to make them supple. Then use the squeezed-dry coconut meat over the leaves.
  • Take a heaping tablespoonful of the first mixture (chocolate) and place on the banana leaf wrapper. Sprinkle a little cheese on it before rolling, with the banana leaf covering the mixture. Therefore, you hands won't be touching the mixture being rolled.
  • Take another heaping tablespoonful of the second mixture (milk) and do the same process.
  • Place the two cylinders (milk and chocolate) and roll to form a thicker cylinder with the two colors fused together.
  • Roll the banana leaf to wrap tightly and tie a string at both ends to secure.
  • Repeat the process until all of the two mixtures have been wrapped.
  • Steam for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Let cool before serving.

Divine Dessert Recipes: The Fondant Fancy

Known to some as a French Fancy, but to us British as Fondant Fancy, the iced sponge cake is a divine dessert that many of us have "fond" memories of. What are they, where do they come from, and can I make them at home - are perhaps the questions at the forefront of your mind right now?

What are they and where do they come from?

\"Dessert Recipes\"

Fondant Fancies were originally produced in the UK by the beloved Mr Kipling. They are incredibly sweet, consisting of a single cube of sponge cake, topped with butter cream, and coated in fondant icing, with chocolate or another colour of icing drizzled on top.

Divine Dessert Recipes: The Fondant Fancy

Can I make one now?

Sure, the process is quite long but the results are absolutely worth it. Gather together the following ingredients:

For the cakes:

- 175g unsalted butter

- 150g plain caster sugar

- 3 eggs

- 175g plain flour

- 1 teaspoon baking powder

For the fondant icing:

- 25g unsalted butter

- 100g dark chocolate

- 90g icing sugar

- 100ml boiling water

- 75g mascarpone cheese

- 75g melted white chocolate to decorate the fancies


Preheat the oven to 140C or gas mark 1. Grease up a 9 inch square cake tin.

Using an electric whisk, mix together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, whisking continuously, and only add each one as soon as the last one has been fully mixed in. Fold in the flour and baking powder lastly.

Throw the mixture into the baking tin and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. When done, set aside to cool and cut into 1 inch cubes.

Whiel you're waiting for that, boil a pan half full of water and leave to simmer. Suspend a heatproof mixing bowl on the pan (not allowing the base to touch the water), and add the dark chocolate, butter and icing sugar. Stir until nicely smooth. Gradually add the boiling water (you may not need the whole 100ml) until the mixture is runny enough to fall down the sides of the cakes.

Back to the inch square cakes, begin by placing a small lump of mascarpone on the top. Spoon over the icing and set aside for at least 30 minutes to allow the icing to cool and harden.

Finally, drizzle the melted white chocolate on top for effect and allow to cool again.

Two Classic British Dessert Recipes - Sticky Toffee Pudding and Spotted Dick

Unlike many delicate cakes and desserts of European origin, the British tend to enjoy their desserts (or "afters") as sickly sweet and of real substance! Here are two recipes for some classic British dishes - Spotted Dick and Sticky Toffee Pudding!

Spotted Dick

\"Dessert Recipes\"

I have no idea why it's called this, but spotted dick remains a favourite in British families, and consist of a simple currant sponge cake soaked in Custard. Read on, and you will need:

Two Classic British Dessert Recipes - Sticky Toffee Pudding and Spotted Dick

- 50g butter

- 350g plain flour

- 3 teaspoons baking powder

- 140g suet (that's animal fat, by the way)

- 90g sugar

- 120g currants

- Zest and juice of two lemons

- 75ml milk

- 75ml cream, whipped

- Custard to serve (store bought is fine)


Use your fingers to grease up a pudding bowl (about 1.4 litre). Mix well the flour, suet, baking powder, sugar and currants. Melt the leftover butter and stir into the mix along with the lemon zest and juice. the zest should be fine. Mix the milk and cream separately then slowly stir it in.

Pour the whole mix into the pudding basin and cover with a double layer of greaseproof paper (tracing paper?). Tie around the edge with a piece of string.

The pudding should be boiled, not baked. If your microwave can't steam-bake, then make sure you have a pan big enough to hold a little boiling water and the pudding bowl. Cook for about an hour and half, making sure to check that the water hasn't boiled away (this is very important).

Serve with regular custard for a nice sloppy traditional spotted dick pudding!

Sticky Toffee Pudding:

For adult and children alike, sticky toffee pudding a family treat, but don't overdo it. You will need:

- 200g dried dates

- 250ml black tea

- 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

- 85g unsalted butter

- 175g self-raising flour

- 1 teaspoon mixed spice

- 175g brown caster sugar

- 2 beaten eggs

For the sauce:

- 100g muscovado sugar

- 100g unsalted butter

- 150ml carton of double cream


Preheat the oven to mark 4, then boil the black tea with the dates. Keep boiling for about 4 minutes to soften them and stir in the bicarbonate of soda.

Cream the sugar and butter together then beat in the egg, flour and mixed spices. Fold in the dates and pour into an ovenproof dish. Throw into the oven and bake for a good 35 minutes until firm to the touch.

To make the sauce, cook the butter, sugar, and cream over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. After a while, it should turn a nice toffee colour.

Cut the pudding into squares and top with hot sauce and a good scoop of ice cream.

Italian Dessert Cannoli Recipe

Cannolis are a great Italian dessert and they were said to have been developed by Sicilians in Palermo, Italy. These fried wafers are filled with a mixture of ricotta, candied fruit, chocolate, and other ingredients, and they are very, very tasty! Sicilians are supposed to have created this great dessert recipe, and I think that they are just delicious. I hope that this recipe is fairly easy to follow. You will need some type of dowel or metal tube that you will use to form out your cannoli shells. If you have a 3 ½ inch in diameter ring or even a 3 inch ring, you will need this to form the shape of your shells, also. You will also need a deep fryer, or a pan that is deep enough for these shells to float in oil.

Ingredients for Cannoli Shells:


3 Cups of unsifted flour

Italian Dessert Cannoli Recipe

1/4 Teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon of salt

3 Tablespoon of granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 Tablespoon of firm butter cut into small cubes

1/4 Cup of a good Marsala wine

1-2 egg whites, whisked slightly

First thing is to sift the flour with salt, cinnamon, and granulated sugar. You will make a well in the center of your sifted flour mixture. In the middle of the well you have made you will add the egg and butter and start mixing with a fork. You will work the egg mixture with the fork from the center out, to incorporate the moist egg with the flour mixture. You will then add your Marsala wine slowly until dough begins to come together like a playdough mixture. You will then start working the dough with your hands to form the dough into a dough ball. You will then cover and let the dough rise for about 10-15 minutes.

If you have a stainless area to work on great, if not you will need a wooden cutting board. You will need to slightly dust the area you plan to work on with a small amount of flour. You will then roll out the dough into 1/4 inch thickness. You will then use your 3 ½ rings and cut the cannoli shell circles. You will then use a rolling pin to roll the circles into oblongs or ovals. You will then take your dowels or tubes and wrap the dough around cannoli forms. You will then whisk your egg white, and seal your dough edges by using a brush or very clean hands if you have no brush. You will then roll up ever so slightly the ends so they will have a very faint lip or ring on the edge of the cooked product.

At some point when you are ready to get your shells into the oil to start cooking them you will heat your oil to around 350 degrees. Once it is at the proper temperature you will begin to fry two, or three at a time in deep hot fat for about 1 minute, or until lightly golden. Remove with tongs to paper towels to drain, you will then let cool for about 30 seconds to one minute and then slip out cannoli form, holding shell carefully so you will not break it. Cool shells before filling. Let them hang out while you will start to make your filling.

Ingredients for the Cannoli filling:

3 lb. ricotta cheese, that has had moisture removed

2 1/2 Cup of confectioners' sugar

1/4 Cup of semi-sweet chocolate pieces or grated sweet chocolate

1/4 Cup candied cherries, finely chopped

1/2 Teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 Cup of chopped pistachio nuts

Confectioners' sugar to dust each of the finished Cannoli's maybe about 1/2 Cup

First thing you will want to do is take your ricotta and place into cheesecloth and wrap it into a ball and then you will tie a knot in the top part of the ball you have made. You will want to hold over night if possible to drain the water from the ricotta. If you have some way to hang the cheese ball in your refrigerator that would be best. You will need to have a bowl under the cheese to catch all of the moisture that will drain off of the ricotta. The shells that you have made will hole for a couple of days if you want to make these in stages. They are worth the wait, and the time taken to make these little delicacies.

First you will take the drained ricotta and get it into the bowl and work it for a minute or two to get it more pliable. You will gently start to combine the cheese, and the sugar into a mixing bowl, and fold in with a spatula until you obtain a light, airy blend of ingredients. You will start to fold in the minced candied fruit and the chocolate very gently. You will then start to spoon the cheese filling into a pastry bag, or a large Ziploc if you do not have a pastry bag. You will then twist the top into a knot to keep the filling from emerging, and fill each of the Cannoli shells, squirting the filling in from either end.

Once you have all of the shells filled you will dip the ends of the cannoli in the pistachios. You will then arrange all of the Cannolis on a platter, and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar, and they're ready. If you would like to garnish you can save some of the candied cherries and place them on the center of each Cannoli after the powdered sugar has been applied. Then serve, and enjoy.

Ginseng Side Effects

The use of herbs is a time-honored approach to strengthening the body and treating disease. However, herbs contain active substances that can trigger side effects and interact with other herbs, supplements or medications. For these reasons, herbs should be taken with care, under the supervision of a practitioner knowledgeable in the field of botanical medicine.

Possible side effects of Ginseng have a reasonably good safety record. The most common side effects are nervousness and excitability that usually decrease after the first few days. The ability to concentrate may be decreased, and blood sugar may decrease to abnormally low levels. Because ginseng has an estrogen-like effect, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take it. Occasionally, there have been reports of more serious side effects, such as asthma attacks, increased blood pressure, palpitations, and, in postmenopausal women, uterine bleeding. To many people, ginseng tastes unpleasant.

\"Dessert Recipes\"

Both American and Asian ginsengs are stimulants and may cause nervousness or sleeplessness, particularly if taken at high doses. Other reported side effects include high blood pressure, insomnia, restlessness, anxiety, euphoria, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, nosebleed, breast pain and vaginal bleeding.

Ginseng Side Effects

Siberian ginseng may cause nervousness and restlessness in some individuals. In rare cases, Siberian ginseng may cause mild diarrhea. Siberian ginseng is not recommended for individuals with very high blood pressure. It may cause insomnia in some people if taken too close to bedtime. IF symptoms like breathing problems, tightness in the throat or chest, chest pain, skin hives, rash, or itchy or swollen skin develop, the use of taking Siberian ginseng may be stopped.

There have been reports that Asian ginseng may possibly decrease the effectiveness of the blood-thinning medication. Warfarin when taken with ginseng may inhibit platelet activity. Aspirin may not interact well either. Consult with your physician before taking any herbal supplement. The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) has rated ginseng as a class 2d herb and specific restrictions apply.

Ginseng Side Effects

Ginseng provides detailed information on Ginseng, Growing Ginseng, Ginseng Tea, American Ginseng and more. Ginseng is affiliated with Therapeutic Essential Oils.
