For Carol on Coast in 2/8 newsletter, we far prefer to have casseroles frozen unbaked, then bake them when we are ready to eat them.

Dee wanted recipes for waffle cones in the 2/4 newsletter. I saved this from a 2009 newsletter, but have not made them. Pam in Ohio shared the recipe.

Waffle Cones Recipe

3 large eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 cup melted butter, cooled
2 Tablespoons vanilla *I used real vanilla and felt that this is what gave the cones their great flavor.
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 c. all purpose flour

Beat eggs while gradually adding in sugar a little at a time. Beat until smooth. Add the cooled melted butter and vanilla. Mix well.

Next stir in the baking powder and flour until dough is a slightly sticky consistency. Drop this dough by heaping tablespoons onto a hot oiled waffle cone maker. Close lid and heat about 30-40 seconds. * I found there was no need to spread the dough out across the surface of the cone maker. When the lid closed, the weight of the lid spread the dough out perfectly.

After 30-40 seconds, roll the hot cone onto the roller to form the cone. Pinch the end of the cone together while hot to seal it shut. * I also made waffle cone bowls which was easier. I removed the hot, flat waffle cone from the cone maker with a spatula and immediately placed it onto an small upside down custard bowl, pressing the sides down slightly to form a bowl shape. Remove the cone bowl after a minute or so when cone has cooled enough to set the shape.

Robbie's Beer Bread Recipes

Mary wanted beer bread recipes in the 2/3 newsletter. these recipes have received mixed reviews with our family, but I am happy to share them. Some think they are delicious and the best bread ever, but others strongly disagree. Make sure the beer is not flat. Also, I think it is like cooking with wine. If you don't want to drink the wine or beer, then you probably won't like the results of cooking with it. The type/flavor of the beer will impact the taste of the bread. You can make your own self rising flour, if you do not have any on hand. See recipe that follows.
Robbie IN

Great Beer Bread Recipe

3 cups self rising flour
1, 12 oz., can beer room temperature
3 tablespoons sugar, optional for a sweet bread
5 teaspoons caraway seeds or chives or poppy seeds or chopped onion or green onion with the green part also
Parmesan cheese, optional

Mix all ingredient just until moist. Pour into lightly greased loaf pan. Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 º for 40 to 50 minutes
Robbie IN

Sweet Beer Batter Bread Recipe

3 c. self rising flour
3 eggs
1 (12 ounces) can beer

2 cloves of garlic, minced
6 thin slices of fresh ginger
3 Tbs. sesame oil
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1/4 cup water

Cook the green beans in boiling water (to cover), 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and plunge into cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain on paper towels. Cook green onions, garlic and gingerroot in hot sesame oil in a skillet 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add sugar, salt and soy sauce. Cook until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Add the green beans and water, reduce heat to medium and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Best if served immediately but they carry in a nice covered casserole dish very well.

Raisin Bread Pudding for Two Recipe

1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons raisins
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 slices frozen or firm bread - easier to spread
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Grease the bottom and half way up the sides of the top half of a double boiler. Firmly pat the brown sugar into the pan, completely covering the bottom. Sprinkle the raisins over the brown sugar; set aside.

Spread the butter on the bread. Sprinkle on the cinnamon; rub into the butter. Cut the bread into 1/2-inch cubes; set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Add the bread cubes, stirring gently to coat. Carefully, taking care not to disturb the layer of brown sugar, pour the milk and egg mixture against the back of a large spoon into the prepared pan.

Place the double boiler over cold water; cover. Over low heat, cook until set in the center, about 1 hour. (Shake pan gently to test firmness). Spoon the warm pudding into dessert dishes; spoon the brown sugar-raisin sauce from the bottom of the pan over the pudding.

Note to Terry re: desserts for toaster oven.
I make every recipe in which the pan fits, in the toaster oven. I don’t know what kind of toaster oven you have, but almost anything that you normally bake in a large oven can be made in a toaster oven with a few temperature adjustments, if necessary. I cut recipes in half, like crisps, put the ingredients in a small old Corningware dish and pop it in!

A while back one of the NancyLanders asked for a walnut cake. Here is mine. It is sooo good.

1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 c. flour

1 c. milk
1 c. black walnuts, chopped

Beat butter, softening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add extracts to milk. Add baking powder to flour. Alternately add liquid and dry ingredients to batter. Stir in walnuts. Pour batter into a greased and floured tube or fluted pan. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven until cake tests done, about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Dianne in Wisconsin asked if butter flavored Crisco would affect the taste of the Chocolate Chip Cookies, and no, it sure doesn't. I have used it for a lot of my baking with perfect results. Real butter in many cookie recipes produces a crisper, flatter cookie, which some do like, but can be remedied by using shortening in place of butter, or used for half the amount of butter called for in the recipe.
Judy (in Alaska)

Jeannie in Western NY asked if the puddings in the Dreamsicle Salad are the instant mixes. No, they aren't. I did state in the directions to cook the puddings, and also in the ingredients I did list the vanilla pudding as a regular mix. I don't believe there even is a instant tapioca pudding. Hope this is helpful?

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Newsletter looks awesome today. I answered my own question about Butter Flavored Crisco in chocolate chip cookies lol. I made some yesterday and they were fabulous. Thank you many times over to the person who suggested using Crisco instead of butter. I always have the Butter Flavored Crisco on hand but not always enough butter - problem solved. Does anyone in Nancyland have a TNT recipe for chicken wings like Pizza Hut has? I bought some wings from Pizza Hut - regular wings with honey barbecue and they were soooo good I could have eaten all 8 by myself. Would love recipe similar to Pizza Hut's wings. I want the barbecue sauce to cling to the wings but not for the wings to float in it. Thank you in advance for any help.
