Kringle Denmarks Best Kringle


What is a Kringle? It is a Danish yeast cake which is traditionally baked in a pretzel shape. I guess that is why the portions of Kringle dough is so large because you would need a good amount to make it into the classic pretzel shape. However, its quite common for most people to shape them into a rectangle instead. The original recipe would have made 4 cakes which is too much for us here at home, although I could easily have followed that recipe and frozen the remainder downthey freeze well :) But I decided to cut the recipe in half. It worked out very well and the only little hick-up I encountered was that instead of having an odd measurement of 1 1/2 large eggs ?? in the recipe, I went with an even 2 large eggs instead. The result was that I had to add a wee-bit more flour and the outcome was a very soft and pliable dough and an amazing crumb in the final cake. As with any yeast cake it is always best served same day it is baked.

The folding process for making Kringle

Just wanted to share with you that this particular recipe comes from a lady named Anne Margrethe who lives in Hirtshals, Denmark. Her Kringle recipe was featured on a Danish television show hosted by Sren Ryge and he declared it Denmarks best Kringle. I must say that it is super delicious!

Starting top left picture: Cubed butter in liquid, Remonce, Filling on dough, Finished Kringler

Kringle (makes 2 Kringler)


For the dough:

1 deciliter water

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

2 large eggs, room temperature

150 grams butter, cut into small cubes, room temperature

325 grams all-purpose flour

For the Remonce:

115 grams butter, room temperature

115 grams sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon


50 grams raisins

25 grams blanched almonds, chopped

Pearl sugar

1 egg, for egg wash


In a small saucepan heat water to 110 degrees F (no more than 110 degrees). Pour warm water into a large bowl, sprinkle yeast over water and let sit for 10 minutes. Add sugar, eggs and butter to bowl and give a quick stir, let sit for another 10 minutes. Add all flour to bowl and using your hands, mix all ingredients until homogeneous. Transfer dough to a clean bowl, cover with a clean and dry tea-towel and let rise for 30 minutes.

To make Remonce filling mix together butter, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, set aside.

Sprinkle work surface lightly with flour and give the dough a quick soft kneading. Dough should be soft and pliable. Divide dough into two portions and form each piece of dough into a log. Working with one log at the time, place a piece of parchment paper onto your work surface and, on the parchment paper, roll out the log to approximately 30 x 16 centimeter rectangle (11.5 x 6 inches). Spread 1/2 the Remonce filling down the middle of each dough rectangle and sprinkle with raisins and almonds. Fold the outer 1/3 of dough over the middle and then the other outer 1/3 of dough over the middle again. Fold the ends closed. Holding onto the parchment paper, roll dough rectangle over so its now placed upside-down. Place parchment paper with dough rectangle onto baking sheet. Repeat process with second piece of dough. Allow both dough rectangles to rise for another 15 minutes on the baking sheet.

Preheat oven to 220 degrees C (425 degrees F). Lightly beat egg with a fork and brush dough with egg wash. Sprinkle with Pearl sugar and almonds. Bake for 12-14 minutes on middle rack in preheated oven. Allow to cool on baking sheet. Enjoy!

Ok, so it all started when I made the Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread and discovered that zucchini can be an exciting vegetable. Who knew! I always thought they were dull and not worthy of my attention :) Now I understand why people get so excited when they tell me that they planted zucchini in their garden or that they found the most gorgeous zucchini at the grocery store. It turns out that zucchini is quite the vegetable!


So now that I am on this zucchini kick here is a wonderful little recipe for some Zucchinideller. I should probably explain the word Zucchinideller. They are like the Danish meat patties called Frikadeller except there is no meat involved here, only delicious zucchini.

Zucchinideller (makes 6 patties)


1 large zucchini, grated and drained

1 small garlic clove, minced

1 small bundle chives, chopped

4 tablespoons old-fashioned oats

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 medium fresh basil leaves, chopped

1/2 egg, lightly beaten


Rinse and dry zucchini. Leaving the peel on, grate the zucchini and squeeze out excess liquid. Place zucchini in a bowl, add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Spray pan with cooking spray and bring to medium-high heat. Drop tablespoons of zucchini onto hot pan and brown both sides of patties. Serve warm and enjoy!

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year and this past week Fall has finally arrived in Virginia. We dont get much Fall color here when compared to the more northern states but some of the trees are the most beautiful shades of red, orange and yellows. There are a lot of perfect days this time of year, and to me, perfect means the crisp, cool air with the still warm sun and the most amazing deep blue sky. There are Fall festivals on the weekends with pumpkins, music, hayrides, arts and crafts and more pumpkins. Which brings me to my subject for this recipe.pumpkin :D

Making Pumpkin Spice Pancake Batter

If you follow my blog, youll know that I absolutely adore pumpkin. I have on occasion tried pumpkin pancakes in restaurants but it has always been a bit disappointing, too much ginger, not enough cinnamon, too greasyyou get the picture. So I decided to try my hand at making home-made pumpkin pancakes and this version did not disappoint. In my opinion, there is just the right combination of spices and when served with warm Maple syrup, they are to die for. These Pumpkin Spice Pancakes are already on my Top 5 favorite pumpkin recipes list.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes (makes 7 pancakes)


1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (5 1/2 oz. or 155 grams)

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

2 dashes of ground cloves

1 cup milk

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1 large egg

2 tablespoons vegetable oil


In a medium bowl mix all dry ingredients together using a fork to ensure there are no clumps of brown sugar. In a separate bowl mix together milk, pumpkin puree, egg and vegetable oil. Using a whisk combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and whisk only until combined.

Heat a small greased pan to medium heat. Pour 1/3 cup batter onto hot pan and fry until air bubble form on top surface. Flip pancake and cook the second side until golden brown. If desired, keep pancakes warm in oven (200 degrees F) until ready to serve. Enjoy with warm Maple syrup.
