I got this recipe from Maangchi’s youtube page! I love Korean everything, music, movie…everything! I started getting into Korean culture, from listening to a ringtone on my hubby’s phone (yea I know that is strange!!) So I decided to learn more about the Korean culture, living in south Florida…we have an abundant melting pot of culture, but you would be surprised at the lack of Korean culture we have here! But back to this awesome recipe…this dish includes noodles, veggies and pork belly (u can sub for tofu or chicken, whatever type of meat you want)! I mean pork belly…that is like the sexiest meat next to bacon!

For a list of ingredients, check out the youtube video, don’t forget to like and comment on it!

Jjajangmyun <= mmmmmm enjoy!


How to make your own Icing Sugar/ Confectioner Sugar

Almond Buttercream on the bottom

Icing sugar on the top, and almond buttercream

I used to encounter this problem every time I would start baking something, “recipe calls form 110g of icing sugar.” Go to look in the cupboard, and wouldn’t ya know it, I am fresh out of icing sugar. AAAAARGH I don’t feel like driving all the way to the store, but wait a minute I have all this granulated sugar, and hey I have this cornstarch…hmmmm let me just make some icing sugar.

Icing sugar, also called confectioner sugar and powdered sugar is a fine sugar, mostly used for baking. The cornstarch is added to stop the sugar from caking up together. Its mainly used to making icing, frosting, and baking decorations (fondant, glazes…etc)

1cp sugar
2tbsp cornstarch

You can use a coffee grinder, mortar and pestle, but I use a blender sometimes a food processor depending on how much I want to make, so I won’t run out!

Place the ingredients in the grinder and pulse for about 2-3min, shaking the sugar mixture to make sure all the sugar gets crushed.

Once you got the consistency you wanted, store it in a airtight container.

Enjoy! :0)

This cake is simple and delicious, I hope you enjoy it…if you are allergic to nuts, then you don’t have to add them.  You can make your own frosting (video to come), or you can use store bought. :0)
