Mocha Portion Bread for Food ‘n Flix—the Star Wars edition

From the Food ‘n Flix Website

For the August edition of Food ‘n Flix, it’s anything Star Wars.  Kelly at Simply Inspired Meals  is hosting.  Read her announcement post here.

Most of the recent films in the Star Wars world premiered during the holidays.   This time frame was perfect for us as we generally got to take the nephews to the theater for an authentic film-viewing experience.   At least one of the recent films we saw in Imax.  Rogue One  was the last film we all saw together.  (Alas, I had to watch Solo solo.)

Now, to flashback a few years, I distinctly remember my sister and I being dropped off at the theater on a Saturday afternoon to see the very first Star Wars film.  (Yep…that old.)   I love every single one but obviously some are better  than others.  (On the worst end of the spectrum, I’m definitely thinking of those Prequels, I-III.)

Food in these films, however, seems few and far between.   Really, I was hard pressed to think of any food in the films save The Force Awakens.  I remembered Rey’s humble meal that she literally had to scrounge for.

I found a recipe here for Rey’s Portion bread.

Rey’s Mocha Portion Bread

Based on this recipe.

This is a dense and only slightly sweet dessert. It’s cool to make with kids.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 t. vegetable oil
  • 4 T. cake flour
  • 1-1/2 T. sugar
  • 1 t. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 t. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 T. whole milk
  • 1/4 t. vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Place the oil in small cup.  I used a custard ramekin.  Swirl around to grease the inside.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cake flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. Pour in the milk and vanilla and mix.   Pour mixture in the oiled ramekin.
  4. Place in the microwave on high for 30-45 seconds.
  5. Let cool slightly and serve.

Yield: 1

It’s not as beautiful or instantaneous as the version in the film, but it was fun to make and was edible.  🙂

It was a cool experiment.  (Luckily, Nephew II was here and helped me with this little project.)  Thanks to him for helping me get this image full screen on my computer for these photo opps.  Thank you!!!

I would have loved to have had the time to binge watch (and own) all of the major films in this franchise.   Hopefully we all can do that during an upcoming holiday gathering.  Perhaps we’ll make this bread again.

 

Thanks to Kelly for hosting.  It was quite nostalgic to think about these films.  Join Food ‘n Flix next month for O Brother, Where Art Thou?   I’m hosting.  (I LOVE this film.)   Look for an announcement post here at EE during the first part of September and then settle in for a quirky odyssey with the Coen brothers (and George Clooney).
