Funnel Cakes

Post  justmecookin on Thu Jun 26, 2008 9:04 pm

Funnel Cakes

3 cups vegetable oil
4 cups flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups milk
3 large eggs
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

In a deep medium skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until it registers 350º to 375º on a deep-fat thermometer. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and add the milk and eggs; whisk until smooth.

Transfer the batter to a gallon-size resealable plastic bag, remove the excess air and seal the top. With scissors, snip off a corner to make a 1/4-inch-wide hole. Carefully squeeze about 1 cup batter (one-eighth of the mixture) back and forth into the oil, making a free-form lacy web.

Cook until golden on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Using tongs, turn the cake over and cook until golden on the other side, about 1 minute more. Transfer the funnel cake to paper towels to drain briefly. Repeat with the remaining batter. Dust the funnel cakes with confectioners' sugar and serve hot. Serves 8

In a bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down sides of bowl as needed.

Let cool in pans on racks for 5 minutes; remove cupcakes from pans and set on racks to cool completely, at least 30 minutes.

With a small, sharp knife, cut a cylinder about 3/4 inch wide and 1 inch deep from the center of the top of each cupcake. Trim off and discard about 1/2 inch from bottom of each cylinder. With a knife, hollow out a small cavity inside each cupcake.

Spoon marshmallow cream into pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tip. Twist end of bag tightly to secure. Place tip in cavity of one cupcake; without moving tip, squeeze filling into cavity, to 1/4 inch from top. Repeat to fill remaining cupcakes. Insert cake cylinders into holes.

Spoon chocolate cream cheese frosting into another pastry bag, fitted with a 3/4-inch star tip, and pipe onto tops of cupcakes, or spread on cupcakes with knife. Makes 16 cupcakes

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

Post  justmecookin on Fri Jul 04, 2008 8:20 pm

About 9 ounces chocolate wafer cookies, broken into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup melted butter (1/4 lb.)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
1 pound mascarpone or cream cheese
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups strawberries (14 oz.)

Preheat oven to 325° (300° if using convection heat). Place cookies in a 1-quart zip-lock plastic bag and seal. With a rolling pin, crush cookies into fine crumbs. Pour 2 cups of the crumbs into a bowl and mix with melted butter, sugar, and espresso powder. Press mixture evenly into bottom and up sides of a 10-inch tart pan with removable rim.

Shortly before serving, remove rim from pan. Rinse, stem, and thinly slice strawberries. Arrange in a circular or spiral pattern on top of the tart, overlapping slices slightly. Makes 10 to 12 servings

Chocolate-Caramel Trifle with Raspberries

Post  justmecookin on Fri Jul 04, 2008 8:21 pm

Chocolate-Caramel Trifle with Raspberries

About 1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter or margarine, at room temperature
About 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup hazelnut- or coffee-flavor liqueur
Caramel Pastry Cream
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries (6 oz.), rinsed and drained

Butter and flour a 9-inch square baking pan. Coarsely chop 3 ounces of the chocolate and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in a microwave oven on full power (100%), stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes total.

In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium-high speed, beat 1/2 cup butter and the sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until well blended. Stir in melted chocolate.

In another bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture and milk to butter mixture, stir to combine, then beat until well blended. Scrape batter into prepared pan and spread level.

Bake in a 350° regular or convection oven until cake begins to pull from pan sides, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cake cool to room temperature in pan on a rack, about 1 1/2 hours.

Run a thin knife between cake and pan sides and invert onto a board to release. Cut cake into 1- to 1 1/2-inch cubes. Layer a third of the cubes in the bottom of a 3- to 3 1/2-quart trifle bowl or other straight-sided glass bowl.

Drizzle 1/4 cup liqueur evenly over cake. Spoon a third of the Caramel Pastry Cream over cake and spread level. Repeat to make two more layers each of cake, liqueur, and pastry cream, ending with pastry cream. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 1 day.

Finely chop remaining 1 ounce chocolate or scrape into curls. Arrange raspberries on trifle and sprinkle chocolate evenly over berries. Scoop onto dessert plates to serve. Makes 8 to 10 servings

Triple-Chocolate Brownies

Post  justmecookin on Fri Jul 04, 2008 8:23 pm

Triple-Chocolate Brownies

3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (not Dutch-processed)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. In a double boiler over simmering water, melt chocolate and butter (see "Melting Chocolate the Easy Way," below, for another method). Stir in brown sugar and vanilla. Take off heat. Add eggs and mix thoroughly. Add flour, cocoa, and salt, mixing until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into an 8-inch square pan. Bake until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs sticking to it, 20 to 25 minutes.

Melting chocolate the easy way: Double boilers are great for gently melting chocolate, but we've found an even easier method that uses common kitchen equipment. Put chopped chocolate in a small metal bowl along with any other ingredients you need to melt, such as butter.

In a large frying pan over high heat, bring about an inch of water to a low boil. Take pan off the heat and set the bowl in the water. Let sit, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted, 5 to 10 minutes. Makes 16 brownies

Custard:
2 1/2 cups milk
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon butter

Remaining ingredients:
1/4 cup raspberry preserves

12 large vanilla meringue cookies (such as Miss Meringue), divided

To prepare custard, place milk in a medium saucepan. Scrape seeds from bean; add seeds and bean to milk. Heat milk mixture over medium heat to 180° or until tiny bubbles form around the edge (do not boil); discard bean.

Return milk mixture to pan; cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly (about 5 minutes), stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter, stirring until melted. Pour into a bowl; cool completely. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.

Combine preserves and framboise in large bowl. Reserve 6 blackberries, 6 raspberries, and 6 blueberries. Fold remaining berries into preserves mixture. Reserve 6 cookies. Place remaining cookies in a large zip-top plastic bag. Crush cookies using a rolling pin.

Spoon 1/4 cup custard into each of 6 tall glasses; spoon 1/3 cup berry mixture over each serving; top each serving with 1/3 cup crushed meringues, 1/4 cup custard, and 1/3 cup berry mixture. Top each serving with 1 blackberry, 1 raspberry, 1 blueberry, and 1 cookie. Makes 6 servings (serving size: 1 parfait)
