This recipe was posted in answer to a message board request. It was one of many recipes that came with my ice cream machine. Cinnamon ice cream is yummy on warm apple pie, baked apples, bread pudding or just in a bowl by itself, on a hot night. Freezing time for this recipe is 30 minutes in my electric ice cream machine. Time may vary according to the manufactures directions for your ice cream maker. Cook/Prep times do not include the 1 to 2 hour chilling time needed before processing/freezing the cooked mixture. Note: The egg yolk gives the finished product a better texture.
These prawn cakes are a great appetizer or small finger food to serve with drinks. They can be made in huge batches, all shaped and kept in the freezer. And when you need them (which will be often), just take them out and shallow fry. It is ready to be served. Great for unexpected guest.
This is how we make them here in Sweden. My mother always does them this way, and in every other Swedish family I have visited. The other recipes I have seen here have little resemblance with the original.
The pancakes should be thin like crêpes. It's also important that the skillet is thoroughly and evenly hot before starting (even then, the first few may not turn out perfect). Mark 4 on a 1-6 hob is good.
Note: The recipe is very easy to remember in Metric: 2 eggs times 3 (deciliters) flour equals 6 (deciliters) milk.
My daughter despises zucchini, but my husband and I love it, so this is an easy way for us to get our "fix" and it's the perfect amount for the two of us. If I'm baking something else in the oven, I'll just put this in till the meat or whatever is done, then crank up the broiler and top it off in there. And of course, you can use more cheese or anything else you desire.
Simple-to-make crepes makes excellent use of fresh-from-the-garden chives and scallions. Delicious served with yogurt of low-fat sour cream topped with additional chives for a low-cal lunch or with stir-fried shrimp and vegetables for lunch or dinner.
