How to make hoisin sauce at home

Sometimes you simply can’t buy hoisin sauce at grocery shop.

I don’t use this sauce frequently and I don’t like dosens of half bottles of sauces in the fridge.

Instead of having dosens of half full sauce bottles in my fridge, I would rather make fresh when I need this kind of a sauce.

Only a few minutes to make a fresh sauce.


4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 teaspoons sesame seed oil
1 teaspoon hot sauce (to your tasting)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

How to cut your sponge cake into more than two nice, even parts?

its rather hard to have nice, thin and even slices, more than two of your sponge cake.

here I will show you how to make it.

First, you have to measure how high it is.

As a second step you have to decide how thick slices you would like to have.

10 mm. or 5 mm thick?

It’s rather easy.

You will need

Measuring tape or liner

4-6 thoothpicks

1 guitar string, the thinnest one

1 knife

Put the cake onto an even surface, a chopping board.

take the measuring tape and measure the hight you want, for example 10 mm, and stick one toothpick into the cake. Repeat this three more times or more.

Place the string over and under the toothpicks to fix their position.

this will fix the position of the string.

Now, if you’re ready, cross the two ends of the string and gently pull. The crossing strings will cut the cake .

Try to pull both ends with regular power. If you can finish the slice this way or complete the job with a knife.

The should be as thick as you have measured.
