Aebleskiver A-Ha!!


Don't let the name scare you. This is a fun tradition to have with family at Christmas or anytime you want something special. The pan for the Aebleskiver is a must- check with Amazon they have some good prices. I like cast iron- but probably any Aebleskiver pan will work.

AEBLESKIVER

2 EGG WHITES

2 CUPS ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR

2 TEASPOONS BAKING POWDER

1 TABLESPOON SUGAR

1/2 TEASPOON BAKING SODA

1/2 SALT

4 TABLESPOONS BUTTER, MELTED

2 CUPS BUTTERMILK

1 CUP VEGETABLE OIL (FOR FRYING)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
  • BEAT WHITES UNTIL STIFF
  • MIX TOGETHER THE FLOUR, BAKING POWDER, SALT, BAKING SODA, SUGAR, MELTED BUTTER AND BUTTERMILK AT ONE TIME AND BEAT UNTIL SMOOTH
  • GENTLY FOLD IN THE EGG WHITES
  • PUT ABOUT 1 TABLESPOON OF VEGETABLE OIL IN THE BOTTOM OF EACH AEBLESKEVER PAN CUP AND HEAT UNTIL HOT.
  • POUR IN ABOUT 2 TABLESPOONS OF THE BATTER INTO EACH CUP.
  • AS SOON AS THEY GET BUBBLY AROUND THE EDGE, TURN THEM QUICKLY. CONTINUE COOKING, TURNING THE BALL TO KEEP IT FROM BURNING.(I ACTUALLY FEEL YOU ONLY NEED TO TURN ONCE)
  • SERVE WITH POWDERED SUGAR, MELTED FRUIT JAM EG. RASPBERRY AND OR MAPLE SYRUP.
  • MY TURNING UTENSILS OF CHOICE ARE WOODEN SKEWERS, BUT A FORK WILL WORK QUITE WELL.
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN THEY CAN ALWAYS BE THE HELPER TO SERVER THE AEBLESKIVER TO THE TABLE.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE


5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

a small splash of vanilla extract

1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT! (This can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous). And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world? Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!
