Strawberry Nutella Muffins

051711 074-1After bringing these muffins to our early morning seminary class, I have had several requests for the recipe. So I am going to take a break from days full of never-ending weeding in my yard and nights full of endless softball games to share them with you. Strawberries are just beginning to arrive at the farmers markets and pick-your-own farms here in western PA, so it is a perfect time to make these muffins. And everything tastes better with a little Nutella swirled in!

051711 045-1

I found this recipe on Two Peas & Their Pod, and just couldn’t resist making them. The only changes that I made to the recipe were to add more strawberries than called for, and probably more Nutella. I didn’t actually measure the Nutella; I just scooped it out of the jar to put in the center of the muffins.

As with most muffin batters, to keep them from being dry and dense, you do not want to overstir the batter. There should still be some streaks of flour in the batter.

051711 038-1

Fill the muffin cups halfway with batter. Place a dollop (about a tablespoon: I just used a soup spoon straight from the jar) of Nutella on the batter. You do not need to spread it around. Nutella can be kind of thick at room temperature. I warmed the Nutella first in the microwave for about 30 seconds. This made it really easy to drizzle the Nutella from a spoon onto the batter. My jar was almost empty, so I just heated the Nutella in the jar. If you are only using part of your jar, you might want to spoon some into a small bowl before heating it.

051711 035-1

Top with another scoop of batter, until the muffin cups are about 3/4 full. Sprinkle with Turbinado sugar. This is a coarse raw sugar. You could use regular sugar if you don’t have it, but turbinado sugar does make a nice crystally (I’m sure that’s not a real word, but it should be) crust.

051711 041-1

These are best served warm while the Nutella is soft and gooey.

Here is the original recipe from Maria, with my notes at the end on the slight changes that I made.

RECIPE:

Strawberry Nutella Muffins
————(from Two Peas & Their Pod)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 cup Nutella
Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on top of muffins

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease well. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.

3. In a small bowl, combine canola oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Use a fork or whisk and mix until well combined.

5. Incorporate the wet ingredients into flour mixture.  Add slowly and gently stir, you don’t want to over mix.  The batter will be thick. Carefully fold in the strawberries.

6. Fill each muffin cup half way with batter. Next, add a small spoonful of Nutella to each muffin cup. Cover the Nutella filling with the remaining batter. Sprinkle each muffin with turbinado sugar.

7. Bake muffins for 17-20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the pan and let cool on a cooling rack.

Makes 9 muffins

Kelly’s notes: I used coconut oil instead of canola oil. I didn’t measure the Nutella, I just used a spoon and scooped straight from the jar, but I probably used a little more than 1/3 cup. I heated the Nutella for about 30 seconds in the microwave before using (to make for easier drizzling). I also used more strawberries than called for (about 1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cups). I ended up with 12 muffins, and I needed to bake mine for 23 minutes before they were cooked through.

Waffle Week: Lemon Yogurt Waffles

050611 029-2

Desserts in our house usually have to come in both a chocolate and non-chocolate variety. So, alongside our Double Chocolate Waffles, we had these Lemon Yogurt Waffles.

These waffles are a little sweeter than regular waffles (even after I cut the sugar in half from the original recipe), so I don’t think I would want them for breakfast. Little A had no problem eating them anytime of the day, however.

050611 039-1

The waffles are made with plain yogurt and flavored with fresh lemon zest. They have more of a light cake consistency than regular waffles.
The berry sauce was a perfect accompaniment for the sweet lemon taste of the waffles.

Lemon Yogurt Waffles
——————(adapted from The Perfect Pantry)

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2-1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
Grated zest of 2 lemons
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, oil, eggs, lemon zest, and vanilla. Slowly whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

Use a ladle or measuring cup to pour batter evenly into hot waffle maker (about 2 scant cups for the 4 small Belgian waffles in my waffle maker). Cook for about 3-5 minutes, or according to directions on your waffle maker. Remove waffles from waffle maker and place on a wire rack (not a plate). Serve immediately or keep warm in a warm oven (very low heat).

Makes 2-3 large Belgian waffles (8-12 small squares)

To freeze: Cool waffles on a wire rack. Place in Ziploc bags and freeze. Reheat individual frozen waffles in a toaster (for crispier edges) or microwave (for a soft waffle).

Waffle Week: Double Chocolate Waffles

050711 010-1Dessert Waffles:
AKA, How to convince your mom to let you eat dessert for breakfast

We ate these Chocolate Waffles the first time for dessert topped with black raspberry ice cream and a triple-berry sauce. The kids convinced me they would also be good for breakfast the next morning, without the ice cream but with whipped cream instead. I don’t think that really changed the sugar content any!

These chocolate waffles are not too heavy, but with the addition of mini chocolate chips in the batter and topped with ice cream and berry syrup, they are reminiscent of a brownie sundae. Next time I would like to try them topped with vanilla ice cream and buttermilk syrup.

RECIPE:

050711 010-1

Double Chocolate Waffles
                 (from Our Best Bites)

2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup corn starch
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp (scant) cinnamon
1 cup milk or buttermilk
1/3 cup oil
6 Tbs granulated sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 C mini chocolate chips

Combine flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda, salt and cinnamon. Use a whisk to combine. In a separate bowl whisk together milk, oil, sugar, egg and vanilla. Whisk for a minute so it gets a little frothy. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry a little at a time, whisking to combine. Just stir until they’re combined and don’t over mix.

Use a ladle or measuring cup to pour batter evenly into hot waffle maker (about 2 scant cups for the 4 small Belgian waffles in my waffle maker). Sprinkle about 1/3 of the chocolate chips (for a large Belgian waffle maker) over the batter in the waffle iron. Spread lightly with a heat proof spatula so that a small amount of batter covers chocolate chips. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, or according to directions on your waffle maker. Remove waffles from waffle maker and place on a wire rack (not a plate). Serve immediately or keep warm in a warm oven (very low heat).

Makes about 3 large Belgian waffles (12 small squares)

To freeze: Cool waffles on a wire rack. Place in Ziploc bags and freeze. Reheat individual frozen waffles in a toaster (for crispier edges) or microwave (for a soft waffle).

Waffle Week: Whole Grain Waffles

Wholegrainwaffles (6)-1

Looking for a healthier waffle that is also great tasting? These whole grain waffles are made with whole wheat flour, oat flour (ground oats) and wheat germ. After making the Buttermilk Waffles (with no separated eggs), I used some of the same techniques to try and make these as light as possible. Replacing some of the flour with cornstarch and letting the batter sit for a little while before cooking really helped make these waffles great.

Wholegrainwaffles (8)-1

With the heavier whole grains, they will never be quite as light as all-white-flour waffles, but they make up for in flavor what they lack in airiness.

RECIPE:

Wholegrainwaffles (6)-1

Whole Grain Waffles

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup oat flour*
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 Tbs wheat germ
2 Tbs brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk or sourmilk (or 1 cup kefir + 1 cup milk)**
2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry; mix well. Let batter sit for 30 minutes before cooking. Do not stir batter after letting it sit.

Use a ladle or measuring cup to pour batter evenly into hot waffle maker (about 2 scant cups for the 4 small Belgian waffles in my waffle maker). Cook for about 3-5 minutes, or according to directions on your waffle maker. Remove waffles from waffle maker and place on a wire rack (not a plate). Serve immediately or keep warm in a warm oven (very low heat).

Makes about 3 large Belgian waffles (12 small squares)

* To make oat flour: Place rolled oats in a blender or food processor and blend until fine.

**To make sour milk: add 2 Tbs lemon juice to a 2 cup measuring cup, fill to 2 cup line with milk (whole milk works best). Stir; let sit 5 minutes before using. If using sour milk, add an additional 1-2 Tbs flour to batter.

To freeze: Cool waffles on a wire rack. Place in Ziploc bags and freeze. Reheat individual frozen waffles in a toaster (for crispier edges) or microwave (for a soft waffle).

Waffle Week: One-Bowl Buttermilk Waffles

BWnoegg-1 (7)

This is my favorite recipe for making same-morning (not overnight) waffles. I seem to have an irrational opposition to separating eggs, beating the whites separately and then folding them back into the batter. To compensate for not beating the egg whites, this batter is best if let to sit for 30 minutes before cooking. I realize that letting the batter sit for half an hour doesn’t really make these any faster to make than recipes using separated eggs, but psychologically I find these “faster”.

The batter contains a small amount of cornstarch (mixed with the flour and baking powder & soda) which helps to make the batter lighter. I love the light texture of the waffles with great air-pockets. And no egg white beating!

Waffle Week: Sourdough Waffles

sourdough waffles (5)-1

I make this waffle recipe more often than any other that I have tried. It is a great way for me to use some of my sourdough starter (without the commitment of all-day-bread-making). It is another overnight recipe, so it does need to be started the night before. I find this more convenient than mixing batter in the morning. I make the batter after the kids go to bed, and they are ready to cook with minimal effort in the morning. These waffles are slightly tangy, like the Yeast Raised Waffles, but the flavor is not as “yeasty”. Just how sour the waffles taste will depend on the strength of your starter.

SD Maple 018-1

My kids especially like these waffles. They are very light and airy, with great pockets inside and out for soaking up syrup or other toppings.

Don’t have any sourdough starter? These waffles are reason enough to make one! Here are a couple of resources for sourdough starter recipes:

Annie’s Eats (uses commercial yeast)
Sourdough Home (does not start with yeast; this is the method that I used to make my starter)
-

RECIPE:

sourdough waffles (5)-1

Sourdough Waffles
————-(adapted from King Arthur Flour via Annie’s Eats)

For the overnight sponge:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbs sugar
2 cups buttermilk
1 cup sourdough starter, straight from the refrigerator (not fed)**

For the waffles:
2 large eggs
¼ cup oil
All of the overnight sponge
2 Tbs sugar
¾ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

To make the overnight sponge, combine the flour, sugar, buttermilk and sourdough starter in a large mixing bowl.  Mix well to blend.  Cover and let rest overnight at room temperature.

When you are ready to make the waffles, preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.  In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine the eggs and oil.   Add to the overnight sponge.**  Mix in the sugar, salt and baking soda, stirring well to combine.  The batter will bubble.

Pour the batter into the preheated waffle iron and bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use slightly less batter than usual (I use a very scant 1/2 cup batter in each section of my waffle maker), as this will continue to rise and spread in the waffle maker.

Remove waffles from waffle maker and place on a wire rack (not a plate). Serve immediately or keep warm in a warm oven (very low heat).

**SOURDOUGH STARTER NOTE: Sourdough starters can have different thicknesses (hydration). After adding eggs in the morning, if the batter is too thick to scoop with a ladle or measuring cup, add a  little bit more buttermilk. The batter will have a different consistency than normal waffle batters: it should be like a thin bread dough, be thin enough to scoop, but not thin enough to pour.

Makes about 4 1/2 large Belgian waffles (18 small squares)

To freeze: Cool waffles on a wire rack. Place in Ziploc bags and freeze. Reheat individual frozen waffles in a toaster (for crispier edges) or microwave (for a soft waffle).

Waffle Week: Overnight Yeast Raised Waffles

yeastwaffles (17)-1

Waffles made with yeast are a great alternative to traditional waffles. They have a slightly tangy flavor and are much lighter than many regular waffle recipes. Yeast raised waffles do require some forethought, as the batter needs to be made the night before, and left to proof on the countertop overnight. Be sure to use a big bowl as the batter will rise significantly.

Some of my kids did not enjoy these waffles as much, but I really liked them. They thought the yeast flavor was a little too pronounced. In typical completely inconsistent fashion, however, they did really enjoy the Sourdough Waffles that I made, which also sit overnight and have a tangy (but less-yeasty) taste. (RECIPE TOMORROW)

For Waffle Tips & Strategies, click HERE.

RECIPE:

yeastwaffles (17)-1

Overnight Yeast Raised Waffles
———————-(from Cooks Illustrated)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbs sugar
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast or rapid rise yeast
1 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups warm whole milk (110 degree f)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Whisk the flour, sugar, yeast and salt together in a large bowl, then gradually whisk in the warm milk and melted butter until smooth.  Whisk in the eggs and vanilla until combined.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 12 hours or up to 24 hours.

Heat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instruction. Spread the appropriate amount of batter (I use a scant 2 cups in mine) onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. **Use less batter than you normally do: this batter rises significantly while cooking.

Remove waffles from waffle maker and place on a wire rack (not a plate). Serve immediately or keep warm in a warm oven (very low heat).

Makes about 3 large Belgian waffles (12 small squares)

To freeze: Cool waffles on a wire rack. Place in Ziploc bags and freeze. Reheat individual frozen waffles in a toaster (for crispier edges) or microwave (for a soft waffle).

Waffle Week: Brown Sugar Buttermilk Waffles

buttermilk waffles sep eggs (18)-1

For Valentines Day, I got a new waffle maker. I have been without a waffle maker for more than ten years, and didn’t think that I was really missing out on anything. Waffles are just glorified, more-effort-involved pancakes, right?  I was so wrong! So I must thank my kids for conspiring to get me this new waffle iron! I love it!

I do have to admit that Little J was leery of the first waffles that I made. “These are burnt. And square.” she said. I replied that they weren’t burnt; they were supposed to be that color. She insisted, however, that “real waffles are supposed to be yellow. And round.” (Think Eggo). Poor child: she had never eaten a homemade waffle, only an artificially colored imitation. I am glad to say that after her first bite, she was converted. She is still less convinced about the homemade syrups.  She keeps asking when I am going to buy some more “real syrup.” Until then she is sticking to fruit and whipped cream toppings.

For the last couple of months, I have tried more than a dozen new waffle recipes (and some great waffle toppings), and I am finally ready to share some family favorites.

The first recipe is a traditional buttermilk waffle recipe, made with separated eggs (with the egg whites beaten until stiff). The whipped egg whites make for great air pockets in these crispy waffles with a soft, tender center. This is a great basic recipe for everyday waffles.

buttermilk waffles sep eggs (15)-1

A few Basic Waffle Tips & Strategies that I have learned these last 3 months:

  • Make sure that your waffle iron is very hot. Cool iron = lots of sticking. My new Calphalon waffle iron is non-stick and does not require any oil or spray to keep the waffles from sticking.
  • Don’t overfill the waffle maker pockets. Spillage is not fun to clean. Start with a scant amount of batter on the first few waffles, until you are sure of the right amount. Different recipes will rise more or less while cooking, so don’t think that the same amount of batter will work with different recipes.
  • Once your batter is mixed, do not keep stirring batter between batches. The air pockets in the batter (from the baking powder/soda or whipped egg whites) will collapse with over-stirring.
  • Use a ladle or measuring cup (1/2 cup size works well for my waffle maker) to scoop batter. This minimizes the stirring or pouring which will deflate your batter.
  • If you are using add-ins like blueberries or chocolate chips, sprinkle them on the batter in the waffle iron (instead of in the batter in the bowl); then use a heat-safe rubber spatula (or the back of your ladle) to move some batter over the berries/chips so that they don’t stick to the top plate of the waffle maker. If stirred into the batter in the bowl, these heavier items tend to sink, requiring more stirring, which will deflate your batter.
  • Cool waffles on a wire cookie sheet, not a plate. Letting the air circulate around the waffles will keep them from getting soggy.
  • If you are not serving the waffles immediately, place the wire cooling rack in a warm oven (200°F or lower) until ready to serve.
  • Waffles are great for making in large batches and freezing in Ziploc bags for busy mornings. Reheat in the toaster to maintain crispy edges.
  • Buttermilk substitute: Place 1 Tbs lemon juice in a one cup measure; add milk to one cup line. Stir; let sit for 5-10 minutes before using. Or try dried buttermilk powder that stores in the fridge. Or use kefir.
  • Oil (in the batter) makes for crispier waffles; melted butter makes for softer, more cake-like waffles. I prefer using oil in most recipes. Use a mild flavored oil.

Quick & Easy Nutella Crescent Rolls

3711 133-1

A quick and easy idea today that isn’t really a recipe, as it only contains three ingredients: a tube of packaged crescent rolls, a jar of Nutella and some chopped nuts. I used walnuts, but chopped hazelnuts, pecans or almonds would also be good. These are the jumbo-sized rolls, but you can make them with any of the varieties.

Great for kids to make for a Mother’s Day breakfast (or dessert). And always popular with hungry teenagers after early-morning seminary.

3711 123-1

Open tube of crescent rolls; separate dough into triangles. Spread with Nutella. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.

3711 129-1Roll into crescent shape, beginning with wide end. Curve ends into crescent shape. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicon liner. Bake according to package directions until golden brown. Serve warm.
