In Greek keik is pronounced: cake. Similar to a pound cake, this is a simple cake with a touch of orange flavor. It can be embellished with chocolate, nuts, raisins, or other additions to your taste, but this is the basic recipe.
I'm not Jewish, but I like to celebrate Hanukkah. I love to make these delicious traditional potato latkes during Hanukkah and other times of the year. You will crave these crispy fried potato pancakes topped with sour cream and applesauce for Hanukkah or anytime of the year.
Mmmmm -- nothin' better to go along with a weekend breakfast like some warm, gooey, doughy and sweet beignets. We eat them with 10x sugar sifted on top, but some people like pouring cinnamon-maple syrup over them. This is the easy way to make them -- it uses no yeast because it's a "quick bread" variationl
I made this over the weekend. It was so good, and moist. The norm would be to bake it in a bundt pan, but I turned them into cupcakes so everyone would have their own without fighting for a slice. I soaked 4 stalks of vanilla beans in the rum for a month before using, it had a very nice familiar smell you would find in Rum and Raisin ice cream. For an added oomph, top it up with some rum flavoured butter icing or rum glaze.
From Thai Food Tonight. Super easy, and if you have a covered casserole dish you can do the entire recipe in one pot, from start to table. Watch the step-by-step video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxmNsQ_T0oc This is just heavenly- very subtle and balanced. It's like eating flowers. :-)
This recipe, under a slightly different name & for Rosh Hashanah -- The Jewish New Year, was found in the 1998 publication, A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking. Preparation time does not include the 2 hours or more needed for the cooled loaf to freeze.
Here is a dessert for Chanukah -- Festival of Lights. It was found in the 1998 publication, A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking. Preparation time does not include the time needed for the baked cake to chill & set.
Aunt Hattie made a living out of baking this, and Placek, pound cake and other Polish recipes to order. That kept her pretty busy. A very old treasured family recipe. Jarred fruit filling (such as Solo brand) may be used instead of the home-made pineapple filling. Not quite as good though. And you might need more than one jar. Might as well bite the bullet and just make it yourself!
A friend in college showed us how to make these tacos, and we've never been able to make it for someone without them raving about it. It's unusual and delicious.... great for impressing someone who's hard to please. It's also nice in that the meat and toppings can all be made the evening before. ENJOY!
A delicious gluten-free adaptation of a traditional family Chanukah recipe. Serve with sour cream and applesauce. TO MAKE GLUTEN-FREE: The gluten-free rice flour mix I use is 3 cups white rice flour, 3 cups brown rice flour, 2 cups potato starch (not flour), 1 cup tapioca starch - Use just one cup of this mixture. TO MAKE WITH REGULAR (WHEAT) FLOUR: Use only 1/2 cup of unbleached all-purpose white (wheat) flour.
This velvety pouring custard is fantastic drizzled on puddings, apple crisp, bread pudding and fruit, or pooled under or poured over cake and fruit pies. See below for other interesting additions. I originally saw this recipe in Canadian Living Magazine and wanted to make sure I didn't lose it.
