I like to bake, and the best way for me to learn something is to do the action constantly, so I thought that learning fractions and ingreedients would work here.
This is a recipe that I usually make:
Code: Select all
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES 200g Butter 1 cup Brown Sugar 1 cup White sugar 2 Eggs 2 Tbsp Hot Water 2 tsp Vanilla Essence 3 ¼ cup Flour 1tsp Salt 1 tsp Baking powder 1-2 cups Chocolate Chips Preheat the oven to 180ْ C. Combine butter, brown sugar and white sugar until pale and creamy, then add eggs, hot water and vanilla. Beat until fluffy. Sift together and stir in the flour, salt and baking soda. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonfuls on greased baking sheets and bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown.
200g = 二百グラム （にひゃく グラム）
Vanilla = バニラ (is this the same as vanilla essence?)
Butter = バター
Salt = しお
Egg = 卵 （たまご）
Flour = こむぎこ
Sugar = さと
So I'm guessing that brown sugar is 'ちゃいろ の さと' or 'ちゃいろいさと' or something? is white sugar: しろいさと or is it just さと?
And I'm guessing that Chocolate chips is: チョコレートチップ
So, what I would like to find out:
1) Baking soda.
2) how to say: 200g OF butter, 3 1/4 cup OF flour, and so on. I already know that 1/4 = ４分の１（よｍぶんのいち）so, I'm guessing that 3 and 1/4 will be: ３と４分の１
So, basically, I would like to know how to say the ingreedients list at the moment, but if you want to translate the whole recipe, then feel free.
I'm not too good on kanji yet, so if you could write translations with kana aswell would be great!
Oh, and one more thing... is hot water: あつい水, or would it be something different, because I know if you're saying the water was cold, it's not 水がさむいです but 水がつめたいです.
