I baked two Custard Pies to donate to the Kauai County Election Counting Facility where I volunteer as an Official Observer for 2022 Primary Election being held today. Yesterday, I voted. As an Veteran, I know that a great many men and women sacrificed theirs lives to give us the privilege and right to vote as a US Citizen. Our votes do count! Go out and vote if you haven’t done so. God Bless America! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Near disaster was averted when the electricity was cut off mid-way through the baking process. When the electricity was restored I took a chance and bake the pie an additional 15 minutes. The pie surface bubbled up. I think I left it in too long. Luckily, the pie baked throughly.

I baked a Crumble Apple Pie for my Son’s Friend from school. Apparently, he is an Apple Pie fan and was interested in ordering a pie but was bulking about the price of my Apple Pie which I sell for $25.00. He offered a Sugarloaf Pineapple in exchange for a pie. I decided to bake a pie for him to try and see for himself why my pies sell for $25.00.

Mission Completed! 🙌. Received another order from a new customer for a New York Cheesecake with Fresh Mango Purée Topping. I decided to let my assistant helper sleep in since she worked last night. I think I perfected my technique to transfer the cheesecake from the baking pan to the serving plate without cracking it. Just go slow and easy.

I received an order for New York Style Cheesecake. A lot of prep work is needed to bake a perfect cheesecake. Lining the Spring Form Pan with parchment paper and aluminum foil for a water tight seal. Crushing up the Graham Crackers and baking it to make the crust. Mixing the ingredients to form the cheesecake batter then baking it in a water bath pan. Perfection! No cracks on the top. I made a fresh mango purée as a topping for this cheesecake. Time to let it cool down then chill it before it can be release from the pan. My biggest challenge is transferring the cheesecake to its serving plate by myself. Normally, I have the assistance of my wife to help me with this delicate procedure.

A promised fulfilled! I had promised to make a Mango Cream Pie for a friend if she supplied me with Mangos. After much anticipation while waiting for her Mangos to ripen, she provided us with Mangos from her tree. I was able to squeeze this baking project among the other orders I have for this week. Yes, it’s been a busy weekend for me! Just for my friend, I placed a Bing Cherry as a center garnish because it’s all about her. Monina helped sliced the Mangos and even decorated the pie. Monina is now asking for RN wagesI I told her that this pie would be the most expensive pie we ever made if I had to pay her RN pay. We are still negotiating. 🤪 I hope she will enjoy this pie. Happy Fourth of July!

Just returned back from Las Vegas and went to work on a new baking project. A customer placed a special order for a Peach Pie with a Crumble Topping. The sliced peaches were from Trader’s Joes Bottled Peach Halves. This was my first Peach Pie with a Crumble Topping. I thought it was a perfect topping for this Peach Pie. The pie baked beautifully. Of course, I had to include a remembrance of my trip because I’m still on Las Vegas time. I have to get a review from the customer. Enjoy!

My first Mango Cream Pie for Summer 2022. I tried something different by adding a layer of the Mango Purée on the bottom of the crust before adding the cream filling. The fresh mango topping was a bit on the tart side. Can’t wait to try it. It a great summer dessert.

Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised that I received notification that I was assigned a VIN number for my order. After hearing stories of customers waiting several months before they received their car and some are still waiting. I placed my order in February 2022. I’ve always wanted an EV. The Kapaa Apple Pie Company will soon receive its new delivery vehicle.

Busy day of baking. My wife ordered Ube Coconut Scone and Maple Oatmeal Scone to bring to work for Nursing Week. I haven’t baked scones in a long while. The scones baked well. My son asked if I made pancakes because he smelled the sweet aroma of maple when he came home from school. Happy Nurses Week! Thank you for all that you do for your patients.

Vanilla Extract Project- There’s a big coloration difference between the 2 month cured extract and the 4 month. I decided to test out the 4 month old Vanilla Extract by baking a Custard Pie. I’m hoping that Custard will have a richer vanilla flavor. The pie baked well. Can’t wait to taste it in the morning.

I saw these two guys on ISG trying out this recipe and thought I will give it a try too. Unfortunately, I forgot the name of the recipe and the ingredients was based on my recollection of my memory. I purchased a loaf of Sour Dough Bread from VIP Bakery in Kapaa. I cut it into one inch slice, buttered on both sides and cut out the center. I used 3 Eggs and 1 cup Pork & Beans, combined well together. Add salt to taste. Place the slices in a skillet on medium-high. I added leftover chopped Onions, Mushrooms, and Red Bell Peppers in the center of the slice. I added cooking oil to sauté the vegetables. I then added the Egg and Pork and Bean mixture to the slices. In hindsight, I should have lowered the heat to medium to prevent it from getting burnt. Flipped the slices over when the bottom is firm and the top is slightly firm. Since my Wife doesn’t eat Pork, I prepared a special one without the Pork and Beans. She loved it! It came out pretty good. Loved the toasted Sour Dough Bread rim. I think I call this Sour Dough Bread Omelet.

We did a taste comparison with Safeway Store Banana Cream Pie that sells for $11.99 and our JFK Banana Cream Pie that sells for $35.00. There is no comparison. The Safeway Pie only has a thin layer of banana and a lot more banana pudding and whipped cream. The crust was thin and light. You definitely get what you pay for. Our pie has at least 3 layers of ripened bananas in a flaky pie crust, covered by a layer of vanilla pudding that is made by scratch, and a final layer of Mousse Whipped Cream, topped with toasted sliced almonds and a cherry garnish.

THE BEST APPLE PIE IN KAPAA

My quest for the best apple pie started several years ago. My mom was a good baker. I remember as a kid, my mom tried to perfect her apple pie recipe but she was never really satisfied. Her apple pie came out runny and liquidity. I, too encounterd this same problem. I tried many different apple pie recipes. Some with the Granny Smith Apples and cooking it with 6 cups of sugar. It wasn’t until one day in 2013, I was watching a food channel network show about this bakery making apple pies using a Blue Ribbon Award Apple Pie Recipe. I decided to try it and apple pie came out great. I modifed the recipe to suit my taste and baking skill. The secret to making great apple pie is the cooking time and using the right type of apples. I mainly use two type of New Zealand Apples - ENVY and BRAEBURN. Sometimes, I use both in my apple pies. I admit that in the early days, I cheated by using ready made pie crust as I felt I didn’t have the talent to make my own pie crust. I started making apple pies for my work place luncheons and bake sales. People liked my apple pies and soon were asking to buy a whole pie. Then in 2016, I took two months stress leave from work. I found myself needing a hobby and decided to make baking as my hobby. I found my mom’s old recipe box with all of her favorite recipes. I saw her recipe for her flakey crust recipe. I decided to try it. After many trials and lessons learned, I was able to make my own pie crust. My mom’s pie crust took my apple pie to whole another level. Several people who have tried my apple pie have said that it was the “Best Apple Pie” they ever eaten.

I started the Kapaa Apple Pie Company as an explansion vehicle for my new hobby. Little did I know that I inherited my mom’s baking skills. People who have known me are quite surprise that I have a talent for baking. I enjoyed the challenges of baking and figuring out how to put together the ingredients to make something so delicious. My goal is to make the best apple pie in Kapaa. For the most part, I think I have succeeded in this. I call my apple pie, the Almost Famous Apple Pie. I do hope you will have an opportunity to try my apple pie.

Now, I have branch off into baking scones and other bake goods. I’m slowly getting a following for my bake goods. Thank you all who have supported me and have given me encouragement to pursue my hobby. It gives me great pleasure in knowing that my baked goods have given much enjoyment and delight to those lucky enough to taste it. My bakery offers home made baked goods to order. If you have a potluck event and don’t have the time to bake, give me a call in advance to make an order. I usually need 72 hours in advance to prepare an order. My limit for pies is 3 pies per day. Thank you again, Enjoy!

I am in heaven..... savoring each delicious bite of your famous apple pie. So Ono!!!!!! Flakey crust, and the best filling ever. Not too sweet , a perfect blend of spices, and Apples. Thank you, Kapaa Apple pie company
Glad to be back at home. We had a fabulous time in Hilo. Thank you Uncle Edwin and Aunty Karla, Cousin Michael and Camie for hosting and entertaining us during our visit. The Almost Famous Apple Pie that I brought over got rave reviews by those lucky enough to have a slice. Aunty Karla and Uncle Edwin said that the pie was "The Best Apple Pie They Ever Eaten". Several other people have said the same thing too. It's my mom's flakey crust that sets this apple pie above all other apple pies. It's my personal opininon that this Almost Famous Apple Pie is the best in Kapaa and quite possibly in Hilo too. You can only find this pie at the Kapaa Apple Pie Company.
