I have turned into a reblogging machine. My hope is that everyone looking or following likes Pokémon, video games, comics, and sexy naked people. I go through moods of reblogging and it can get a bit NSFW.

 

If anyone ever needs an example of strongly I feel about Grass-type starting Pokémon, know this:

I’m giving serious thought to starting a tattoo sleeve that consists of the Grass-type starter Pokémon from each game with room to add Pokémon as new games come out.  Legitimately considering this.

Pokémon – Poffins

Oh, Pokémon. How many times can you essentially release the exact same game over and over and how many times will I relive the experience, just to be bitterly disappointed by any new species that isn’t the original 150 (or 151 depending on who you ask). I mean, apart from Girafarig who is the best Pokémon of the new generations. Shut up. Anyway, Pokémon love Poffins. They can make them smarter, better, faster, stronger… As a combination of the words Pokémon and muffin I figured this had to be something soft and slightly sweet (just like the Pokémon themselves). I did a lot of research into cakes and breads and came across the delightful anpan from Japan - a type of sweet, milky bun. The classic anpan recipe was the perfect base to create the well known light and fluffy Poffin.
This recipe makes 6 Poffins.
What you will need: A large mixing bowl, a sieve, a baking tray and tin/aluminium foil.
Ingredients:
75ml / ⅓ Cup Milk
1 ½ Tablespoons Butter
2 Tablespoons Sugar
½ Teaspoon Salt
190g / 1 ½ Cups Strong White Bread Flour
1 Egg (Beaten)
½ Teaspoon Fast-Action Dried Yeast
Variety of Food Colourings (Optional)
For the Filling:
High Quality Berry Jam/Jelly
Use any variety of berry or berries you like; cherry, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry etc.
To Garnish:
Icing/Confectioners Sugar
Water
Sprinkles
Preparing the Poffins:
In a pot on a low heat warm the milk, butter, sugar and salt together until the butter melts.
Pour the liquid into a large bowl, sieve in half the flour and mix well. Sprinkle in the yeast and stir until well combined.
Add the remainder of the flour and ¾ of the egg, continue to mix with a spoon until the dough comes together then use your hands to form it into a ball. (At this point you can split the dough up if you’d like to add any colouring. Do this by adding a few drops and following the next step.)
On a lightly floured surface tip the dough out and knead for about 10 minutes. This will warm the dough and make it firmer and smoother.
Split the dough up into evenly shaped portions, these will become your Poffins. Place them in a large, clean bowl and cover with cling-film/saran-wrap to rise for about 50 minutes, they should double in size.
Filling the Poffins:
Feel free to leave your Poffins plain but if you’d like to add a filling follow these steps;
Take one ball of dough at a time and gently flatten it out a little. Spoon some jam/jelly into the middle.
‘Pinch’ the dough around it, making sure it’s completely sealed. Turn it over and gently shape the dough into a Poffin shape, which is similar to an American football, and place on a baking tray.
Repeat this step for each of the potion of dough and feel free to fill each one with a different berry jam/jelly filling.
Making the Poffins:
Whether or not you’ve added a filling, leave the prepared Poffins somewhere warm to rest for about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Gently brush them with a little of the remainder of egg on top then place in the oven to bake for around 10-15 minutes. (If your Poffins are coloured, you might want to cover them in tin/aluminium foil to stop them from browning after a few minutes).
Once cooked remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Make some icing by mixing the icing/confectioners sugar with a little water, this will act as a glue.
Dip the sprinkles of your choosing in the prepared icing and carefully stick them to the Poffin for the finishing touch.

There’s no need to invite 4 of your friends over to help you stir these Poffins, I assure you. Feel free to create your own mini-game though. Maybe get your mom to shout “Left! Right! Slower!” at you while you make them, it’s totally up to you. These Poffins remind me of doughnuts but with all the pleasure of freshly baked bread; they’re certainly lighter and healthier. If Poffins can make a Pokémon more beautiful, I see no reason why this isn’t true for humans - I’m expecting to see Z-list celebrities selling these on shopping networks in the coming months.

Sure, you can find them online. But when I go to my local used game store looking for Blue or Silver or something, I usually have no luck. ;_;

Weekly Rundown - 07/16/12-07/22/12

Games this week:

  • Game Boy Color -Pokémon: Silver Version
  • Xbox 360 -Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
  • Playstation 3 -DJ Hero 2

Games!  I honestly don’t know how many more of these I’ll do, as I’m getting tired of it.  Once every week since May last year, I’m just getting tired of writing for myself, I guess.

So, mostly, I powered throughAssassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.  Because I’m tired of playing it but I can’t stand to leave a game unfinished.  But, mission accomplished, I finished the story.  And now it’s back on the shelf and I may never touch it again nor playAssassin’s Creed: Revelations.  I just don’t care.  I was talking to a friend about this, and I think the reason I’m dislikingBrotherhoodso much is because it’s so much likeAssassin’s Creed II, which got a lot of leeway because it was the sequel to a game that had a lot of problems.  And, as that sort of a sequel, it really shined and impressed.  But, the sequel to that is more of the same, and all of the issues really shine through.  I’ve spoken of these issues previously, but, a short recap: the controls are wonky and straight don’t work some times.  It’s especially frustrating near the end of the game.  I don’t know if this is because I was just sick of it or if it became particularly problematic, but, I was very frustrated.  The Leonardo missions are not fun.  I played the warship one and the horse-drawn cannon and that was enough for me to know I wanted to avoid those missions.  Both involved a shooting mechanic that was imprecise and slow.  No fun.  The Brotherhood mechanic is still awesome fun, but, obviously not enough to hold the game together.  The writing is still fun, Ezio is great and seeing him grow throughoutAssassin’s Creed IIandAssassin’s Creed: Brotherhoodwas great.  The Desmond stuff is still a little weak, and I’m not enjoying the complete cliffhanger endings thatthese two games have had.  And I’ll probably never know how Ezio’s story ends, because I highly doubt I will ever buy and playAssassin’s Creed: Revelations.  Here’s hoping thatAssassin’s Creed IIIfixes some problems and goes back to being fun.

I played a little DJ Hero 2, just to remind myself how much fun it is.  I want to see if I can find a soundtrack for that game.  I would love to have some of those mash-ups just in my music library.  But, I only played four or five mixes, not a lot at all.

I didn’t play much else. Pokémon, of course.  I hit a wall needing to train up a Psychic-type, but, I’m truckin’ along.  I think I beat some trainers out of order, though.  I beat Chuck and Jasmine, who were about ten levels over me, but now I’m outside Mt. Mortar and the trainers all have Pokémon ten levels under me. Whoops.  Anyway, team currently consists of Drowzee (no nickname, didn’t think I’d be using him on my team), Dee (Bayleef), Bob (Vulpix), Olette (Noctowl), Sean (Flaafy), and Glen (Quagsire).

I don’t think I’m going to continue Final Fantasy X-2.  I haven’t played it in weeks and I have zero desire to go back to it.  It’s just not hooking me in.  Maybe it’s been too long since I played Final Fantasy X, but… just no interest.

And, that’s it!  Hopefully next week?  I mean this in all seriousness, if anyone reads these and enjoys them, sound off in the comments or send an anon message or something.  Something to let me know people legit enjoy these and would like for me to continue, okay?
