Binging with Babish: Harry Potter Special

  • Published on Nov 14, 2017
  • The Harry Potter series is essentially a 7-book guide to everything you wish your childhood was - finding out you're a wizard, running away from home, and indulging in a bevy of treats both mainstay and magical. Rock cakes, cockroach clusters, acid pops, chocolate frogs, and of course, butterbeer. Throw on your dorky glasses and sharpie a lightning bolt on your forehead for this week's examination of the real-world sweets from possibly the world's most popular book series about child sorcerers.
    Pre-order my book in the UK, comes out November 16th!

    Top tip Babish when making a treacle tart the zest and juice of a lemon mixed into the tart filling is absolutely delicious and makes it miles better.

    I'm a little surprised that you went with the cheapo marketed version of the butter beer instead of with a historically accurate mulled beer considering how much you usually dig into the accuracy of your recipes.

    I tried making pie crust sans food processor, and I think my butter bits ended up melting somewhat in the process. Is there a particular way you break up the butter to avoid this?

    You could also do a pasty otherwise known as a Cornish pasty which is savoury (for any no Brits just think of a Mexican picadillo which is actually a Mexican take on a Cornish pasty).

    I've read the books several times and don't recall butterbeer being described with any alcohol. I was always under the impression is was more a soft drink like root beer. Interesting.

      Nor is that surprising. House elves are a great deal smaller than most humans.

      It has to have some small amount of alcohol. Winky gets drunk on butterbeer in book 4, with Hermione stating (paraphrased): "Buttebeer is not very strong." and Dobby replying: "It is for house elves, Miss."

    If you like treacle tart, I wonder how you would like caramel apple pies. They're a popular dessert in Quebec (I'm not sure about the rest of Canada) and I'm honestly not sure why they haven't become popular in the states. It's like a delicious apple pie had a baby with a traditional smooth sugar pie. So good!

    Yeah, pasties are savoury so starting with a "sugarpie pumpkin" was a mistake right off the bat. Sweet pumpkin is a North American thing.

    This a year old, but my friend's birthday is coming up and she just loves Harry Potter. I was wanting to cook these for her, and I was wondering if you needed to use the water + vodka mixture instead of just using regular water.

    why would i want vodka taste in my pie? the alcohol is long gone after baking so why?

    • Luna Winfrey
      Luna Winfrey Month ago

      When you use vodka instead of water or use vodka combined with water you get a lighter flakier crust because it allows you to combine the dough without a lot of gluten formation. You can also get the liquid colder if you use vodka (hard alcohols don't freeze solid) and it's crucial when making a good pie crust that all the ingredients stay very cold.
      You don't taste it at all because a. it's such a small amount of vodka and b. vodka doesn't really have much of a taste once the alcohol taste is gone.

      TheGmodMagician it's not alcoholic if it's baked into it. Same as if you take a flaming shot, if you let the flame burn too long it will burn up the alcohol.

    Aww... I basically made a couple of those when I had a little excess crust while I was making sweet potato pie. I just made a little one and folded it over. A little chef's reward.
    Also the pie because I wasn't making it FOR anyone, that was a treat for ME over the next few days. ^_^
