Scottish Oatmeal Rolls
- 1-1/2 cups boiling water
- 1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) of active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- Optional: Butter and honey
- Mix oats and hot water in a large bowl. Mix with some oil, salt, and brown sugar. Stirring occasionally, let the temperature drop to between 110 and 115 degrees. Meanwhile, activate the yeast by dissolving it in warm water and letting it stand for 5 minutes in a small basin. Blend into the oats. Add flour until you have a firm dough that holds its shape when beaten (dough will be sticky).
- The dough should be smooth and elastic after being kneaded for 6-8 minutes on a floured surface. Put in a bowl, turn once to coat with oil, and set aside. In a warm place, cover and let rise until doubled, about an hour.
- Compact the dough with a punch. Flip out onto a floured surface; cut in half, and roll each half into 24 balls. Prepare a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Put in a warm spot, cover with a kitchen towel, and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
- To bake, the oven needs to be heated to 350 degrees. Cook for 20-25 minutes, or until a golden hue develops. Take out of the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Butter and honey might be included as an option.
English Rhubarb Crumble
- 8 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
- 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 cup cold butter
- custard sauce:
- 6 large egg yolks
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Combine rhubarb and 34 cups of sugar in a pot. Until the rhubarb is soft, which should take approximately 10 minutes, cover and simmer over medium heat, stirring periodically.
- Place in a 13×9-inch baking dish that has been oiled. Flour, brown sugar, oats, and the remaining sugar should be mixed in a bowl. Crumble in a food processor with butter and sprinkle over rhubarb. Cook for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
- Meanwhile, beat the egg yolks and sugar in a saucepan, then whisk in the cream. 15-20 minutes of stirring and simmering over low heat should get the mixture to 160 degrees Fahrenheit and a thick consistency. Turn off the heat and add the vanilla. Crumble it over warm rhubarb and serve immediately.
- 3 large eggs, separated, room temperature
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 medium peaches, peeled and chopped
- Confectioners’ sugar
- Egg yolks and buttermilk should be mixed in a big bowl. In a separate basin, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Blend in the eggs until just wet. Egg whites should be beaten until they are firm but not dry in a small basin using an electric mixer. Gently fold in one-fourth of the egg whites using a rubber spatula. Combining the remaining egg whites is a matter of folding.
- Set a pan for making aebleskivers over medium heat and oil it. One spoonful of batter should be added to each cup. Add a peach slice and 1 more spoonful of batter on top. Get the bottoms nice and brown and bubbly before you worry about the tops. Flip and continue to heat until the other side is browned. Garnish with powdered sugar and serve hot.
- 6 large egg whites
- 1-1/2 cups hazelnuts, toasted
- 2-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- Dash salt
- 1/2 cup superfine sugar
- coffee buttercream:
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons water
- 6 large egg yolks
- 4 teaspoons instant espresso powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
- 6 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
- A small bowl of egg whites should be left at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- To bake, the oven needs to be heated to 350 degrees. In a food processor, combine the hazelnuts and powdered sugar and pulse until the nuts are finely crushed.
- Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form at medium speed. Until stiff peaks form, continue beating on high while gradually adding the superfine sugar. Combine the hazelnuts and the remaining ingredients and fold them in.
- Line baking pans with parchment paper and pipe 1-inch cookies, 2 inches apart. For 9-12 minutes, or until golden and firm to the touch. Place the parchment with the cookies on wire racks to cool.
- Sugar and water should be mixed in a large saucepan for the buttercream. Put in a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat, then cook until the sugar has dissolved. Take away from the heat. While the syrup is still hot, whisk some of it into the egg yolks in a small bowl and then pour the whole thing back into the pan. Remove from heat after two to three minutes, or until thickened, stirring frequently. Mix in the instant coffee and vanilla extract, then let the mixture cool fully.
- Cream the butter in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Mix in the cooled syrup gradually. Sugar confectioners are beaten until light and airy. Place in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes, or until a spreadable consistency is reached.
- Half of the cookies should have around 1-1/2 tsp of buttercream spread on the bottoms, while the other half should be used as the tops. Refrigerate in sealed containers.
