  • Beat all of the eggs with 6 tablespoons. sugar and milk, adding lemon rind, rum and vanilla.
  • In a separate pot, add the sugar cubes over medium heat cooking until the sugar takes on a honey color and texture. This takes about 5 minutes and while you should swirl the pan, do not stir as it will possibly contaminate the syrup with sugar crystals. Pour the caramelized sugar cubes into an oven safe pudding form before adding the pudding mixture. A glass pie plate also works.
  • In a second pot bring enough water to reach up to over the halfway point of the form to a boil and put the filled pudding form into a water bath.
  • Preheat oven to 350-375 degrees. If you are using a shallow dish, use the lower temperature. Cook for 45 minute in the water bath, and before the Rožata is finished cooking and remove it from the water bath. Cook an additional 15 minutes.
  • After cooling off, carefully turn the Rožata over onto a plate and serve. In summer, one can refrigerate before serving.

<p>I come from a long line of wonderful cooks and doing my best to hold up that tradition. My great-grandparents owned a coffee shop; my Nana was also a great cook and started the tradition of baking around the holidays, both cookies and fruitcakes. After she died, now a decade ago, our family decided to continue in her honor. The picture above is my mother's (Chef Hot Pans) dining room table just before we packed up our Christmas cookie trays. More that 20 kinds of cookies, many of which are from 'Zaar recipes. <br /> <br />I myself am an amateur cook with a penchant for ethnic foods and spice. Currently reforming my menu in favor of healthy dishes lower in fat with lots of grains and vegetables. My favorite cuisines are Mexican, Southwestern and North African. <br /> <br /> <br />Some of my favorite public cookbooks include:</p> <li>ladypit's <a href=> WW Core Recipes I Have Tried </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>shirl(j)831's <a href=> Can this really be lowfat??? </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>julesong's <a href=> Cooking Light Recipes </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>mariposa13's <a href=> WW &amp; Lowfat Recipes </a> </li> <p><br /><img src= alt=Dirty /> <br /><a href=;current=kitchen-special-hot2-1.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=FFF#2 width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Adopted /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=ZWT3 /><img src= alt=width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
