swedish cardamon rusk ,norwegian tea cakes

 

I like cookies, but love the flavor of crisp rusk and tea cakes, similar to twice baked dried cookie like biscotti. Not as sweet as the chocolate chip cookie is, but superior is the texture and flavor of the crispy cakes  as far as I’m concerned.

Two recipes here that were baked more than once during the Holiday season !

Diane makes this recipe…..

Grapenut Pudding

I can’t take credit for this simple nutritious recipe. My wife makes this periodically also known as a custard to some.

One of those handed down faded paper recipes folded and retained for easy access.

 

The recipe, doubled, just fills a rectangular glass ware baking dish, placed in a water bath in a large broiler pan.

The richness can vary, ranging from any combination from low-fat milk to heavy cream for the milk component. The  grapenuts are the type usually found along side breakfast cereals at the market. Fresh grated nutmeg a plus, an anytime snack  kept in the fridge that doesn’t last long !

Re”PETE” recipe : banana bread

This is a recipe banana bread that was made a second time, https://recipereminiscing.wordpress.com/banana-bread/

Now it came out a bit lighter and I noticed that the sour cream when mixed with the baking soda bubbled more than the first recipe.

No chocolate chips in this recipe.

Mary’s Victoria Sandwich 

Here’s a recipe from the popular (to some) PBS series The Great  British Baking Show.  I scoured the kitchen and pantry to look for ingredients on hand shortly after viewing the program and finding the recipe . A few substitutions to get this recipe completed. (August celebration cake!)

)Recipe link here(

Here are the changes :

Regular eggs in lieu of free range eggs

All purpose flour , added with 1 teaspoon baking soda, instead of self rising flour

Still use the 1 teaspoon of baking powder

Short on unsalted butter, the remainder was salted butter to complete

For the jam, about 3 ounces of raspberry jam made from raspberries from the garden mixed with about 3 ounces of Smuckers raspberry jam. Heated and simmered. Placed on a plate and refrigerated to cool and thicken.

Butter cream, salted butter, in place of unsalted butter.

Parchment circles for the 8 inch pans, used readily available baking spray.

READY !   SET !   B A K E !!!!!

Baking  the sponges, one came out overdone, temperature and attention are required when trying to replicate the recipe precisely. The  end result was delicious.

Cakes , jam and buttercream ready for assembly.


Raspberries jam spread on the cakes…



The completed sandwich…

The cakes were slightly overdone. We had to refrigerate the sandwich as the jelly contained fresh berries, the sandwich holds well in the fridge. The color from the filling  bled over time into the cakes. A good recipe if you like a sandwich cake that is not too sweet with frosting. The sponge recipe is easy to mix.

Here’s a recipe that Diane made, a rich sweet pound cake. A small slice suffices even without coffee.

Italian white bread

 

Baking bread: I looked at this recipe,   https://recipereminiscing.wordpress.com/italian-white-bread/ the way it was mixed adding the yeast/starter after the bulk of the dough was formed. Of course I had to try it. It may not be spot on with the flours recommended, but I like the results, none the less.

 

(comment: about 2 cups water is what I used for the main flour to water mix and a small amount to proof the yeast about .2 of a pint)

The flours I had available for use (without looking up what durum wheat flour is) were all purpose flour and soft Italian flour, the Tipo 000.

Also used the food processor for mixing versus the stand mixer.

Blending the flours…

The completed dough, nice consistency no additional flour or water needed going by the recipe weight measurements.

After a rise for about 1.5 hours, the last 20 minutes or so in the oven (warmed by just a pilot light).

The dough was formed into loaves, I thought it looked a bit too soft at this stage for the final rise while the oven heated up to about 480 degrees Fahrenheit.

The dough ballooned up more than I expected !

After turning down the heat as recommended, 30 minutes seemed too long for the finish, baked the bread by eye and temperature probe to about 200 degrees Fahrenheit internal temperature of the loaf. the bevel cut could be deeper the next time.

Airy crumb, not as light as store bought Italian bread but a bit more chew to it.

Overall, I like this recipe and the method.

apple egg pudding

Having some apples to use, this recipe coincided from a blogger with  the question of what to do with them.

http://nimmiafzal.com/2014/08/06/super-easy-apple-egg-pudding/

This is similar to another recipe German Apple Pancake, that I have made often. https://pmetro.wordpress.com/2013/10/13/german-apple-pancake-apfelpfannkuchen/

This recipe has a bit more body to it. I used more apples that 1/4 and also added some grated ginger for spiciness. The cardamon  is a pleasant flavor for usually expecting a cinnamon apple pie flavor.

Easy ingredients:

6 eggs

apples , sliced

butter or gee

cardamon

Nuts, and/or raisins (I used a variety of nuts on hand)

sugar

First toast the nuts

Then saute the apples in butter

 

Extract some cardamon with some grated ginger root.

6 eggs

 

Arrange the apples and some of the toasted nuts in a buttered baking pan… I sprinkled the sugar on top of the apples here.

 

After beating together the eggs with spices and some nuts, add atop the apples.

Ready for a 400 degree oven..

 

Bake,  turn out, slice and enjoy with coffee or tea.
