Bierocks

Post  justmecookin on Mon Jan 12, 2009 10:29 pm

Bierocks

Dough:
10 to 11 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 package (1/4-ounce) active dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2-1/2 cups water
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, cubed
2 eggs

Filling:
2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
2 pounds shredded cabbage, cooked and drained

For dough, in a large mixing bowl, combine 4 cups of flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well and set aside. In a saucepan, heat water, milk and butter just until butter melts. Remove from heat and cool to 120°-130°. Combine with flour mixture; add eggs. Using an electric mixer, blend at low speed until moistened then beat at medium speed for 3 minutes.

By hand, gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a firm dough. Knead on a floured surface about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; let rise again until almost doubled.

Meanwhile, for the filling, brown beef with onion, salt and pepper; drain. Mix together with cabbage; set aside. Divide the dough into fourths. Roll each piece into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Cut into 5-inch squares.

Spoon 1/3 to 1/2 cup filling onto each square. Bring the four corners up over the filling; pinch together to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until brown. Makes 24 servings.

Franfurter Kranz Cake

Post  justmecookin on Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:48 pm

Franfurter Kranz Cake

Cake
1 cup butter
6 large eggs
8 tablespoon rum
3-1/2 cup unbleached flour, sifted
1-1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
4 teaspoons baking powder

Apricot Glaze
1/2 cup apricot jam

Butter-Creme Filling
1 cup sugar
6 large egg yolks
1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon rum

Praline Topping:
2 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup blanched, sliced almonds

Cake: To prepare cake, cream butter and sugar until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time. Mix in lemon rind and 2 tablespoon rum. Sift baking powder and flour together. Gently mix into the butter mixture. Beat egg whites until stiff but not
dry. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.

Pour into a well-greased 10-inch tube pan. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for about 60 minutes or until the cake tests done. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes then turn out on wire rack to cool completely. Slice cake crosswise into 3 layers. Pour about 2 tablespoon of rum over each layer.

Butter-Cream Filling: For butter-cream filling, boil sugar and water to a soft ball stage. Beat egg yolks until very light and fluffy, 5 to 10 minutes. While still beating the egg yolks, add the sugar syrup in a thin stream. Beat 5 minutes more, until very thick and doubled in bulk. Slowly beat in the rum. Beat the butter in a small bowl until soft and light. Beat butter into the egg mixture a little at a time. Continue beating until thick. Chill until mixture can be spread. If mixture is too soft, beat in additional butter.

Praline Topping: While butter-cream is cooking, spread 2 tablespoon butter thickly in a 9x13-inch baking pan for praline topping. Then in a 1-quart saucepan, boil sugar and water to soft ball stage. Stir in almonds, cook until mixture caramelizes. Pour syrup into prepared baking pan.When cool, break up praline and grind it in a blender for a few seconds. Apricot Glaze: Finally heat jam and press through a strainer or sieve to make apricot glaze.

Cake Assembly: To assemble cake, place bottom layer of cake on cake plate and spread with half of the butter cream. Repeat with second layer. Place third layer on top. Spread top and sides of cake with apricot glaze. Press praline powder onto glaze. Any remaining butter cream can be used to decorate the top of the cake. Makes 8 servings.

1 cup milk
4 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Durlacher Hof Ricotta Crepes

Post  justmecookin on Wed Mar 18, 2009 10:37 am

Durlacher Hof Ricotta Crepes

Crepes:
1 1/4 cups milk
1 large egg
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons butter or margarine

Filling and Custard:
1/2 cup raisins
1 carton (15 oz., 1 3/4 cups) part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 large egg
1 cup half-and-half (light cream) or milk
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
Cranberry sauce
Sour cream (optional)

To make crepes, whirl 1 1/4 cups milk, 1 egg, and flour in a blender until smooth. Place over medium heat a nonstick frying pan that measures 7 to 8 inches across bottom. When hot, add 1/4 teaspoon butter and swirl to coat pan. Pour in 1/4 cup batter, quickly tilting pan so batter flows over entire flat surface.

Cook until crepe is dry on top and edge is browned, about 30 seconds. Turn crepe with a spatula and brown other side, about 15 seconds. Invert from pan onto a plate. Repeat, stacking crepes as made. You need 8 crepes; reserve any extras for another use.

To make filling, soak raisins in hot water for 2 to 3 minutes. Beat ricotta, 1/4 cup sugar, and egg yolk until well mixed. Drain raisins and stir into ricotta mixture.

Spoon 1/8 of the filling (about 1/4 cup) across lower third of each crepe, and roll to enclose. Place filled crêpes, seam side down, in a lightly buttered shallow 9- by 13-inch baking dish or shallow casserole.

To make custard, whisk 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg with half-and-half. Pour evenly over filled crepes. Bake in a 375° oven until custard at casserole edge no longer jiggles when gently shaken, about 20 minutes.

Sprinkle casserole with about 1 teaspoon sugar and shredded lemon peel. Lift out crepes with a wide spatula. Serve warm with cranberry sauce and sour cream added to taste. Makes 8 crepes

Cranberry Sauce
1 1/3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup sugar

In a 2- to 3-quart pan, combine cranberries, sugar, and 1/3 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover pan, and reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally, just until berries begin to pop, about 5 minutes. Serve warm or cool. Makes 1 cup

Beef Cabbage Rolls

Post  justmecookin on Thu Mar 19, 2009 12:00 pm

Beef Cabbage Rolls

1 head savoy cabbage
1 jar (16 oz.) sauerkraut, rinsed, drained, and squeezed dry
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 pound ground lean beef
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 large egg white
3/4 cup dried precooked white rice
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup fine dried bread crumbs
About 1/2 teaspoon salt
About 1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup tomato juice
1 cup beef broth
Sour cream

In a 2 1/2- to 3-inch-deep 12-inch frying pan or 5- to 6-quart pan, bring about 1 inch of water to a boil over high heat. Cut out and discard cabbage core. Carefully separate leaves from head, keeping them whole.

Add cabbage to pan, cover, and cook until leaves are wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain water from pan and fill with cold water. Drain again. Cut thickest parts of tough stems from the 8 largest leaves; set leaves aside. Finely chop stems and remaining leaves. In pan, mix chopped cabbage with sauerkraut and paprika; spread flat.

In a bowl, mix ground beef, onion, egg white, rice, parsley, bread crumbs, 3 tablespoons water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Mound 1/8 of the meat mixture at stem end of cupped side of each reserved cabbage leaf. Form the meat into a horizontal log 2 1/2 to 3 inches long, fold leaf sides over meat, then roll from stem end to enclose. Set rolls, seams down, on sauerkraut mixture in pan.

Mix tomato juice and broth. Pour over cabbage rolls. Cover pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until meat is no longer pink in center of thickest part (cut to test), about 15 minutes. Spoon stuffed cabbage rolls and sauerkraut mixture into shallow rimmed bowls. Add sour cream, salt, and pepper to taste. Makes 4 servings
