Apple Donuts (Susanne’s Appelkoken)

Some of you may or may not know that I am in the process of writing my first cookbook.  It’s exciting, but scary and overwhelming at times.  This has been a dream for a very long time, and with all the craziness of the past year and a half, I have decided it’s time to take the leap.  It’s time to turn this vision into reality!!  Oh, and did I tell you I thought it would be a cool idea to do my own photography?  Yeah…even though sometimes I think I have bitten off more than I can chew (sounds like a I just found the title for my book..lol!!), I know it is worth it :)!!

All that being said, Anna Gass recently came out with a cookbook “Heirloom Kitchen”,  and I received my copy in the mail last week.  I couldn’t put it down!  This book has so many wonderful stories of immigrant women from Europe, Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and the Middle East.  Along with each courageous and inspiring story, there are so many wonderful and delicious recipes.

I made Susanne Kidd’s apple donuts, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint!!  They are made in an aebleskiver pan.  I have to be honest, it did take a bit of practice turning these little round treats.  Once I got the hang of it, the not so nice words that were coming out of my mouth subsided pretty fast! Lol!!!

As someone who usually likes to put my own twist on recipes, I didn’t stray at all.  I followed the recipe just as it was written.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raisins (75 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons white rum
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons/7 grams)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (106 grams)
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons whole milk, warm (390 ml)
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened (99 grams)
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine kosher salt
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
  • Baking Spray
  • Confectioners’ sugar (for dusting)*

Instructions:

1. Combine raisins and rum in a small bowl and set aside to plump.  Zest and squeeze lemon, peel and chop apples.  Set aside.

2. Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center.  Put the yeast, sugar and 2 tablespoons of warm milk into the well.  Carefully whisk the the yeast mixture in the well until the yeast dissolves.  Cover the bowl with a towel for 10 minutes.  The mixture will bubble slightly.

3. Gradually stir the flour into the well with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated.

4. Add the remaining milk, sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, salt, lemon zest, and lemon juice.  Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon until combined.  Batter should be a thick consistency (like thick pancake batter).  If it’s too thick, add a little more warm milk until it reaches the correct consistency.

5. Drain the raisins and mix them into the batter along with the apples.  Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel.  Let the batter rise in a warm place until it doubles in size (40-50 minutes).

6. Spray the aebleskiver pan and place over medium heat.  Place enough batter into each well to reach the rim ( I used a medium size scoop).  The oil from the baking spray will bubble around the sides and the appelkoken will begin to brown.  A chopstick like stick is used to tilt it slightly to check on the color.  It should be golden brown. Mine took about three minutes.  While the center is still soft, use the wooden stick to turn the appelkoken over (I found that a small offset spatula works too).  Cook for two more minutes.  Check for doneness by sticking a toothpick in the middle.  It should come out clean.

A small offset spatula works well to turn the donuts too :)!

8. Remove the donuts and place on a cooling rack.  I placed the cooling rack in the oven on warm as I repeated the baking process.  Once all the donuts are baked, dust them liberally with confectioners’ sugar.  Enjoy!!

*These confections taste delicious without the sugar too!

Thank you @annagass for this beautiful cookbook, and your witty (and delicious) Instagram posts too!!

 

 

Neopolitan Overnight Oats

These are by far the best overnight nights I’ve ever made, and that’s saying a lot because, well let’s face it, I have made many overnight oats in my day:)!!

For the Vanilla Oats

  • 1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats (27 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (28 grams)
  • 1/3 oat milk, any kind of milk will work (80 grams)
  • 1/2 pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl.  Mix to combine, cover a refrigerate overnight.

For the Chocolate Oats

  • 1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats (27 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein power or 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup oat milk, any kind will work (80 grams)
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

For the Strawberry Oats

  • 1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats (27 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (28 grams)
  • 2 large strawberries (I use frozen, but fresh can be used too)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup oat milk (any kind of milk) 60 grams
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • pinch of fine kosher salt

Blend the milk and strawberries until combined.  Add to a small bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients until combined.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove all three bowls of the oats from the refrigerator the following morning.  Spoon the oats into 2 (two) glass jars.  I topped mine with toasted coconut and dehydrated strawberries.  This is optional, but it looks pretty (and tastes good) if you are going to do a photo shoot…wink wink.

Do yourself a favor and give these delicious oats a try.  You’ll be glad you did, and if you do make these, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi. I would love to hear from you and see your beautiful photos!

This recipe was inspired by @fitfoodiefinds. Thank you so much!!

Petit Fours

These little dessert bites are the perfect way to celebrate any special occasion (I made these for Mother’s Day this past weekend).  I started with my Italian Rainbow cookie recipe.  Instead of coloring the batter with food coloring, I left it as is.  My daughter-in-love Melissa (I call her Missy) has a lot of chickens, and she is so gracious to share some of the many eggs with me.  Fresh eggs are so delicious and they make baked goods taste amazing!!  You could add a little gel food coloring to the batter if you would like, but the beautiful color of my egg yolks actually made the cakes a pretty peach color.

Missy and my son David are traveling across the country with their sons, Seth and Kory (our adorable grandsons…just saying), in an RV that was gifted to them by Missy’s parents.  They are having an amazing time!  With this past year gradually in the rear view mirror, they are finally able to have some fun family quality time:)!!  They’ll be home tomorrow and I can’t wait to hear all about their adventures!

Now, let’s get started making these treats!  These petit fours can definitely be made in one day, just make sure you get started early.  I like to make them over two days.  I make them up to the point of the first refrigeration, with the cans on top, and finish them the second day by cutting and covering them with the pourable fondant.  They can be decorated as fancy or plain as you would like.  I topped these with royal icing leaves, rosebuds and roses, but you could top them with sprinkles or chocolate drizzles too.  Hey, they’re your petit fours, and you can decorate them any way you want:)!!

Ingredients for petit fours:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • One 8-ounce can almond paste
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, softened and divided (339 grams)
  • 4 eggs, separated (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup milk, room temperature (61 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (279 grams)
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam, divided (160 grams)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325° and grease three 9-by-13-inch quarter sheet pans with cooking spray, then line each with parchment. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar, almond paste and 1 stick of butter. Mix until smooth and lump free, being sure to break down the almond paste as best you can. Add the remaining 2 sticks of butter and continue to mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

 

Gradually add the egg yolks, followed by the milk and almond extract. Mix until combined. Add the flour and slowly mix until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Once the flour is combined, set aside.

In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until they form stiff, fluffy peaks. Fold the whipped egg whites into the flour mixture to form a smooth batter, then divide equally between the three pans.

Evenly spread the batter into the greased and parchment-lined quarter sheet pans, and bake, rotating halfway through, until set, 10 to 12 minutes. Let them cool completely.

Once cooled, spread half of the jam to cover the surface of one the cakes.  Making sure the parchment is discarded, place another cake directly on top, sandwiching the jam.

Repeat this step by spreading the remaining jam on top, and placing the last layer directly on top of it, discarding the parchment.

Remove the weights and plastic wrap.  You can now cut the cake into any shape you like. I like to trim the cake into a 7 1/2″ X 10 1/2″ rectangle (remember to keep those scraps for snacking…yum!). Now, using a ruler, cut the cake into 1 1/2 inch squares. Place cakes on a cooling rack and return them to the refrigerator. Chill for 30 minutes, until set.

Ingredients for the poured fondant:

  • 8 ounces chopped white chocolate (226 grams)
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup (88 grams)
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar (420 grams)
  • 1/3 cup very hot water (79 grams)

Instructions for coating and decorating the petit fours:

  • While the petit fours are chilling, chop the white chocolate and place it in a bowl set over a pot of simmering water, stirring occasionally. While the chocolate melts, sift the confectioners’ sugar into a large bowl and then add the hot water and corn syrup, folding together with a spatula until combined. Stir in the melted white chocolate until smooth if the consistency of the fondant is a bit thick, you can mix in more hot water a teaspoon at a time. If you keep the bowl over the simmering water (over a very low heat), it will keep the icing at a nice pourable consistency.

  • Remove the cake cubes from the freezer, place one on a fork then dip the bottom into the fondant. Lift and spoon more fondant over the top until the sides are coated. Tap the fork on the bowl’s edge to remove excess fondant, then return to the wire cooling rack (placed over a baking sheet) to set. Repeat the process for the remaining cubes. The petit fours will take an hour or two to set.
  • Decorate with a drizzle of melted white chocolate, icing, or you can use some royal icing to pipe little roses on top using a small petal tip (102) and leaf tip (349).

I hope you make these for your next special occasion, or maybe a fancy tea party…ohhhh that sounds fun!!

Tiramisu Cake

 

I am a huge tiramisu fan, and so is my husband.  So much, that he requests it for his birthday every year.  This cake is made with a delicious homemade sponge cake that is soaked with strong sweetened coffee, filled (and frosted) with a mascarpone cream that melts in your mouth, and dusted with unsweetened cocoa powder….Yummmm!!!

Let’s get started by making the sponge cakes.  I like to make 2-9 inch cakes that I cut in half giving you four layers.

Ingredients for Sponge Cake:

  • 6 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (130 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • *2 cups strong black coffee (I sweetened mine with 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.  You can omit the sugar if you want, it’s just a preference)
  • 1/4 cup Ghiradelli unsweetened cocoa (28 grams) for dusting on cake

*The coffee isn’t in the cake recipe.  It is used for soaking the layers, and 3 tablespoons is in the mascarpone cream filling.

Instructions for Sponge Cake:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray 2 – 9″ pans with baking spray and line bottoms with parchment paper.

  1. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with whisk attachment, beat 6 large eggs for 1 minute on high speed.  Gradually add 1 cup of sugar (while the mixer is running), and continue beating on high for 8 minutes.  The batter will almost triple in size and will be very thick and fluffy.
  2. Whisk together 1 cup of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.  Sift this mixture into egg mixture one third at a time. Fold with a spatula after each addition just until incorporated.  Be sure to scrape spatula from the bottom to catch any pockets of flour.  Stop mixing when no streaks of flour remain.  Do not overmix or it will deflate the batter.
  3. Divide evenly between prepared cake pans.  It helps if you have a kitchen scale to weigh the pans.   Bake cakes at 350˚F for 25-28 minutes or until top is golden brown. Let cakes rest in pan for 10 minutes then remove from pan and transfer to a cooling rack.  Immediately remove parchment paper.  Cool cakes to room temperature then slice layers equally in half with a serrated knife.

Ingredients for Mascarpone Cream Filling:

  • 4 cups BelGioioso mascarpone cheese (906 grams)
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar (240 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened coffee
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream (360 grams)

Instructions for Mascarpone Cream Filling:

Place mascarpone in a large mixing bowl and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.  It will be so smooth and creamy.

Add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and sweetened coffee in the bowl with the mascarpone cheese.  Beat on medium/high for a minute.  Set aside.

Mix heavy whipping cream to soft peaks.  Add to the mascarpone mixture and mix until fully incorporated and very smooth!

Set filling aside while you slice cake layers and soak them with the sweetened coffee mixture.

Place about a cup and a half of the cream filling on the coffee soaked layer and spread evenly.

Continue filling, soaking, and layering the cakes.  Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining filling (frosting).

The top can be decorated any way you would like.  I put whipped cream in a bag with a large tip with a 1/2″ circle, then I dusted it with unsweetened cocoa.

I cut pieces of parchment paper and placed it around the bottom of the cake to catch most of the cocoa.  This was just a preference for me, but it isn’t necessary.  I think one of the charms of a tiramisu cake is how rustic it is :).

I hope you make this yummy cake, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I would love to hear from you and see your photos!!

 

 

 

Creamy Caesar Dressing

 

I have always been a fan of salads, and this homemade creamy dressing will make even a plain Caesar salad taste delicious.  But why have a salad with just romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese and a few croutons when you can have a delicious Cobb Chicken Caesar salad?  Either way, this dressing is so easy to make, and it tastes so fresh and delicious!!

Ingredients:

1 cup plain Greek yogurt (201 grams)

1/2 cup grated *asiago or parmesan cheese (74 grams)

4 anchovy fillets

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

3/4  teaspoon fine kosher salt

3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:

Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until combined.  Place in jar or bottle with lid.  *Parmesan or asiago cheese will work well in this recipe.

Dressing will keep refrigerated for 4-5 days.  Enjoy!!

I hope you make this delicious dressing, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I would like to hear from you and see your photos!!

Almond Flour Brownies

I have been on a mission to make an almond flour brownie that isn’t tasteless and dry.  Mission accomplished!

I topped my healthy matcha “freak” shake with these bad boys, and it was soooo good!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour (110 grams)
  • 1 cup organic coconut sugar (190 grams)
  • 1/2 cup Dutch cocoa powder (56 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs , room temperature 
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (or butter), melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • chopped nuts (optional)
  • gold leaf (optional)

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and spray an 8″x8″ pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt until to combine.  Add the eggs, oil (or butter) and extract together in a bowl.  Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients  and stir well to form a thick batter. It will be much thicker and stickier than a traditional brownie batter, so be sure to mix well and break up any lumps.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, then use a spatula to spread the batter evenly into the bottom of the pan. It’s okay if it’s not perfectly smooth, the batter will spread and expand as it cooks.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.  If using a  9″x9″ pan, the brownies might cook a little faster.  Be sure to keep an eye on them around the 20 to 25 minute mark. It’s normal for the brownies to puff up in the oven, and then deflate slightly as they cool.
  • Let the brownies cool for at least an hour before slicing them into 16 squares.  Store brownies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days (if they last that long).

 

Healthy Oat Pancakes

I love having pancakes for breakfast.  It doesn’t have to be just on the weekend, I’m talking ANY day of the week!  I don’t think I’m alone in my thinking here….am I right?  Well, you can have pancakes any time your little heart pleases with this recipe.  It makes 6 small pancakes, and I like to top mine off with bananas (or any fresh fruit would be amazing), whipped coconut cream, and yummmy pure maple syrup!  *I added toasted chopped hazelnuts to this stack!

Ingredients for pancakes:

  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats (100 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of fine kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (120 grams), room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (vegetable or canola would work also)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Topping suggestions: fruit, whipped cream, pure maple syrup, and *toasted chopped hazelnuts

Instructions:

  1. Blend the oats in a blender or food processor until they are fine and the texture of flour.
  2. Place oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl and whisk until combined.
  3. Place the milk, vinegar, egg, oil, maple syrup and vanilla in a small bowl and stir to combine.

“Grown Up” Mac and Cheese

 

I don’t know about you, but I have always loved macaroni and cheese.  My mom never made “box” mac and cheese, so when I grew up and had a family of my own, I always made homemade too.  I always think of this dish as the classic comfort food.  I am going to be honest here.  I used to cut up hot dogs, stir them in and bake it in the oven.  Offer up a little side salad, and that was dinner.  It was always very busy in our household.  When my kids were young, I was working as a preschool teacher and teaching aerobics at a local gym 3-5 days a week.  We had after school sports (practice, games etc.).  I’m sure this sounds all too familiar to so many!!

Flash forward, and I still love this delicious comfort food.  I love adding tomatoes or cooked broccoli (whatever veggie you like).  This mac and cheese is a twist on my classic recipe.  I added scallions, olive oil, water, and lemon juice.  Also, I use shredded cheddar instead of gruyere.  Let’s get started:)!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of your favorite pasta
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (28 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (18 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (27 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallions, white part only
  • 1/4 cup water (59 grams)
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar gruyere cheese (110 grams)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Cook pasta and set aside while you make the (roux) bechamel sauce.

Melt the butter over a medium/high heat in a small saucepan.  Add the flour and whisk to make a paste.  Continue to cook for about a minute, stirring constantly, until the raw flour aroma is gone.  Take the roux off the heat and set aside.

Add the olive oil and scallions to a large skillet and cook over a low heat for 2-3 minutes until the scallions have softened.  Increase the temperature and add the water and milk to the olive oil/scallion mixture.  Bring to a simmer and whisk in the roux.  Continue to cook until the bechamel becomes thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.  Take mixture off the heat and add the cheese, lemon juice and season (to taste).

Add the cheese mixture to the cooked pasta and stir to coat.

I added sliced cherry tomatoes and sprinkled seasoned panko bread crumbs on top.  This is optional, but I highly recommend it!  Enjoy!!

I hope you make this delicious “grown up” mac and cheese.  If you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I’d love to hear from you and see your photos!

 

Granola Butter Bread (Topped With Avocado)

I know, I know, you’re saying to yourself, “Another avocado toast recipe?!!”.  Hear me out.  The granola butter bread that the creamy avocado is nestled on is so good!  It’s loaded with flavor, but it isn’t loaded with carbs and sugar!

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour (25 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds (15 grams)
  • 1/2 tablespoon whole flaxseeds to sprinkle on top (this is optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine kosher salt
  • 1- 10 oz. jar granola butter (284 grams)
  • 4 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 4 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk, room temperature (62 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees Farenheit.  Spray an 8″x 4″ loaf pan with baking spray.

Sift dry ingredients in a small bowl and set aside while you mix the granola butter and egg yolks with a stand or handheld mixer for one minute.  Add the almond milk and vinegar and mix until combined.  Stir in the coconut flour mixture.  In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.  Add the egg whites into the granola butter mixture and fold in until the egg whites are fully incorporated.

Place the batter in prepared loaf pan and top with the whole flaxseeds (optional).  *Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.  Cut into 10-12 slices.  Enjoy!!

Leftover bread can be wrapped and refrigerated for up to 3 days.

*All ovens are different.  Check for doneness at 40 minutes.  Baking time can take up to 50 minutes.

I topped mine with avocados, but the possibilities are endless!  This bread would be delicious topped with any nut butter of your choice, sliced bananas, and drizzled with honey.  Yummm!!  You could toast and butter it too, or just eat it all by itself…it’s that good!

I hope you make this delicious bread, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I would love to hear from you and see your pictures:)!!
