We are delighted to be partnering with Nordic Ware and The Minnesota Historical Society over the holidays to highlight and feature this festive cookbook, JUL Swedish American Holiday Traditions by Patrice M. Johnson. It is so pleasantly put together and features loads of delightful cold-weather recipes that are perfect for all the family and friend get-togethers we have over the holidays.Read More
There's something like 87 recipes in this book! Everything from harvest Bundts to springtime Bundts to crazy off-the-beaten-path Bundts. (Orange Pecan Beer Cake, Strawberry pretzel Bundt? Ok!)
But for now, I've chosen a favorite and it's quite perfect for these chilly, fall days leading up to Thanksgiving. Apple butter and cinnamon wafting through the kitchen on a rainy fall morning is quite possibly one of the best things ever.
Yellow cake! It's our favorite, and we've never been shy about admitting we use box mixes (Duncan Hines anyone??) to make them. They're reliable and easy, and frankly, we like the taste! Recently though, we've been trying out Test Kitchen's Cooking School (yay!) and I've kept coming back to this recipe. I've heard people rave about it and to be honest, I just didn't believe that a homemade yellow cake could be any good. My personal experience is that they are dense and have a slight raw egg taste (gag).Read More
Look at this pan! (Click here) I am amazed every time I bake with a Nordic Ware pan. Which is actually quite often. And it never gets old. They are so beautiful. And not to mention non stick. I have never had a cake stick in a Nordic Ware pan (!!!!) People ask me all the time if I have this problem, what do I use to grease it, etc. And I always say to grease it well with butter using a pastry brush. But most importantly....make sure it's a Nordic Ware pan!! You will not regret it. They are awesome.Read More
It's our favorite time of the year! Fall! I know it seems overdone lately, but I just can't help myself. The leaves changing colors, pumpkins in the front of every grocery store, frost in the mornings, pumpkin spice candles, candy on every aisle of the grocery store...the list could go on and on! So when I saw this Autumn Treats Pan by Nordic Ware, I added it to my list of Fall favorites!Read More
I love classic recipes, you just can't go wrong with them. It's why they are still around after hundreds of years. Of course, it's fun to change things up but when it comes to recipes like angel food cake, there's nothing to improve on! It's already so good. That's why I like to mix it up with different toppings...OR different pans.Read More
I love my Crown bundt. It just makes everything so much prettier. Isn't it gorgeous? You just can't go wrong with bundt cake. And this recipe is the best. It tastes wonderful, with or with out the fresh fruit and whip cream. It also tastes good with coffee. I would know since I ate it for breakfast this morning.Read More
