Johnny Cupcakes Has *Great* Recipes for Snacks & Tees!

What’s interesting about Johnny Cupcakes is that it’s not a bakery, there are no cupcakes or food of any sort in the store. Hence the name is a more than a bit tongue in cheek but to play off that riff– and spread the word about his stores full of interesting, satirical and whimsical tees, their new online site/blog/store, they have posted recipes on the blog.
Here’s one of the more *interesting* posts and in keeping with the October theme.

Panna Cotta (brain style) with Pomegranite Sauce

Brain recipe — used with THIS brain mold.
1 cup milk
5 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
4 cups heavy cream
1 cup + 1 Tb sugar, divided
pinch salt
2 Tablespoons vanilla
8 oz. pomegranite juice
1/4 cup cornstarch
-Place milk in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin over the top. Stir and let sit for about five minutes so the gelatin can rehydrate a bit.
-Combine cream and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Add the gelatin mixture and stir again until combined. Pour into (brain) mold, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight or until mixture is completely set.
-To unmold, gently tilt mold so sides of the panna cotta pull away a bit, then place on platter or plate. You can also dip the bottom of the mold into warm water to help in unmolding.
(For non-brain occasions, pour into small custard cups, ramekins, or a large bowl) (now you understand why I love this blog)
-For the pomegranite sauce, get a small bottle of Pom Wonderful, add in three heaping spoonfuls of sugar so isn’t so tart ( or try Splenda. Mix in about 1/4 cup cornstarch and whisk like crazy. Put it on the stove and bring it to a boil — medium high heat– and keep stirring. The consistancy is rather disgusting, but that’s the whole point!
This looks especially creepy set out on a really nice platter. Also quite effective on a carving board with a large chef’s knife plunged into the center
Recipe and photo entirely courtesy of Johnny Cupcakes. Now if that doesn’t give you a hint about the tenor of the tee styles and vibe– then look at it again carefully.
It’s a brainy take for October and worth doing well — even if you do a costume party or not. You might want to take it to work before Halloween.
