Cranberry Bunt Cake with Cream Cheese Swirl

  

Back in 2012, I shared the recipe for my Thanksgiving Leftover Make Over: Cranberry Muffins.  I hope you’ve been able to give them a try.  But to be honest, I’ve made them for so many years after Thanksgiving that this year I had to go in a different direction.  Sort of.

I had made a raw cranberry relish for Thanksgiving this year (2014) and had a surplus of it on hand.  Not that it wasn’t good mind you, I just had been overzealous and made WAY too much of it.  So I had to use it up before it began to ferment. (:

“Cranberry Bunt Cake with Cream Cheese Swirl” was my way of using the raw relish and not making the usual muffin.  So I hope you enjoy!

Actually, this kind of goes without saying but this is a Whole Grain recipe!

Bunt Cake Feature PhotoCranberry Bunt Cake with Cream Cheese Swirl

Preheat Oven to 350.  Grease and lightly flour Bunt Cake pan.

Cake Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Stick Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar or Evaporated Cane Crystals
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups Freshly Milled *All Purpose Flour or **Cake Flour
  • 2 tsp Aluminum Free Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

*Mill All Purpose Flour (50% hard white wheat & 50% soft white wheat) in your Wondermill or Wondermill Jr. Deluxe

**Cake Flour would be 100% Soft White Wheat

Cranberry Cream Cheese Filling Ingredients:

  • 8 oz (1 pkg) Softened Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 tsp Almond Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Cranberry Relish of your choice

I like to make the filling first because it has no rising agent so it can ‘sit’ without affecting the outcome better than the cake batter could.  So…

Cranberry Cream Cheese Filling Instructions:

  1. In the WonderMix with the whips or with a hand mixer combine soft cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth and fluffy.  Then while still beating add egg and almond extract.
  2. Turn of the beaters and using a spatula fold in your cranberry relish until mixture is blended evenly.  Set aside to use in  construction of middle layer of Cranberry Bunt Cake.

blog-Header-WonderMixCake Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the Butter and Coconut Oil until well blended and smooth.
  2. Add sugars 1/4 Cup at a time and blend well each time before adding the next 1/4 cup.
  3. Add eggs one at a time blending each egg well before adding next egg.
  4. Add Vanilla and blend until smooth.
  5. Sift together Flour, Baking Powder and Sea Salt into a separate bowl.
  6. Beat into butter/sugar mixture until well blended.Bunt Cake Mix
  7. Optional (I did) add up to 1/4 Cup of  Cranberry Relish to the batter at this time.
  8. In a greased and lightly floured bunt cake pan place about 1/3 of the batter to fill the bottom.
  9. Now layer in all of the Cranberry Cream Cheese Filling that was previously made and set aside.
  10. Top with remaining Cake Batter.Bunt Cake Layer
  11. After final layer of cake batter has been finished. Use a wooden skewer or butter knife and run it down into the batter, drawing out in ‘stripes’ from the center tube out to the edges (this helps to lift the swirl up through the whole cake)  Look closely pictured below:Bunt Cake Last Layer
  12. Bake in center of preheated oven 45-55 minute until cake tester (aka: a toothpick) comes out clean from center.

blog-Header-WonderMixAllow to cool, well as long as you can allow yourself to wait.  Ideally up to 30 minutes.

Keep under glass dome, lock and key, armed guard, whatever it takes to keep it around to enjoy.

I say this because just a short 20 minutes after this photo was taken, half of my Cranberry Bunt Cake with Cream Cheese Swirl prototype was GONE! **gasp**

Whole Wheat Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

  

Coffee Cake.  That name is just way too misleading.  Call me crazy, but if it’s called ‘Coffee Cake’ why is it that the recipe usually never has coffee IN the cake?  Hmm?  Well, as a coffee fanatic, I just had to remedy that and so this recipe (which smells delightful coming out of the oven) was born.

I hope you enJOY it too!

Best Blessings!

Donna

Whole Grain, Pumpkin and Pecan Waffles

  

This is a warm and inviting breakfast for the holidays or any time that you have just a smidgen of left over pumpkin puree. It’s a nice change from plain waffles and fills the morning air with the warm spices and reminders of Thanksgiving.

Best Blessings and enJOY!

Whole Grain Pumpkin Pecan WafflesWhole Grain, Pumpkin and Pecan Waffles

Makes 4 to 5 eight (8) inch Belgium Style Waffles

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Freshly Milled Hard White Wheat
  • 1 Cup Freshly Milled Soft White Wheat
  • 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 Cup Pecan Pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 3/4 Cup Buttermilk
  • 1/4 – 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree*
  • 3 Tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Raw Sugar

* If using 1/2 C Pumpkin Puree you may wish to decrease Buttermilk to 1 1/2 Cups.

Instructions:

  1. Mill grains (separately) in your Wondermill or Wondermill Jr. Deluxe
  2. In medium bowl or your new WonderMix combine the last 7 ingredients (wet, sugar and spices) and mix with whips or fork until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the first 7 ingredients and mix lightly.
  4. If using the WonderMix combine dry into wet ingredients and mix until just blended.  If by hand, make a well in the center of dry bowl and pour all liquid into center and mix by hand until just blended.
  5. EITHER METHOD be careful not to over mix and make a tough waffle.
  6. Let sit while preheating waffle iron. Batter should become bubbly.
  7. Avoid remixing once batter has sat – just scoop out without mixing.
  8. Once preheated, spray waffle iron with oil or non-stick spray and pour in approximately 3/4 Cup of batter.
  9. Once light goes off or on (depending upon your model of waffle iron) or steam begins to ‘slow’ remove waffle and place on a rack or cooling tray in a warm (175-200 degree) oven until all waffles are done.
  10. Serve with whipped cream, white chocolate (or semi-sweet) morsels, syrup and butter if desired.

These also freeze well if you want to double the batch and place them in the freezer with a wax or parchment sheet between them to avoid sticking together.  Then simply toast directly from freezer in a toaster oven or on a wire rack for 8-10 minutes at 300 degrees and top accordingly.

Chocolate Whole Wheat Empanadas (Vegan)

  

Oh…The joys of trying to eat healthy and still have some indulgences.  Out of the attempt to ‘have it both ways’ this recipe was born!

Originally called “Sugar Pies” by my very southern, Appalachian born and bred, mother-in-law, I realized they are in fact an empanada.

Shhhh… don’t tell her that… 

I made some healthier substitutes to her original recipe such as: whole wheat vs. white flour crusts, coconut oil & nut milk vs. butter & shortening, etc. Still, these are among the richest, most indulgent dessert you will ever enjoy! That’s one reason I made them small.

Ok, I’ll admit. The photo below was really one of the ‘steps’ in the process not the finished product.  This was the plate of shaped empanadas.  They had not yet been pan fried or oven baked.  But in my defense, I was accosted by family and guests as each of these came out of the pan and there was NO WAY to get a finished photo.  Just picture, if you will the golden brown ‘done-ness’ of the crusts…

Guess you’ll have to make your own to see what I mean… (:

Chocolate Empanadas VeganThe ingredients could not be simpler: A vegan pie crust and filling.

Vegan Whole Wheat Pie Crust

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 C Organic Raw Virgin Coconut oil (chilled)
  • 2 C sifted, freshly milled *all purpose flour
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 C ice cold water (you may not use all of this)

First pour 3/4 C of liquid coconut oil into a Pyrex measuring cup and place in refrigerator.

Second pour 1/2 C of water and place in refrigerator (if in a rush add ice cubes but you will want to remove them before using the water)

To make the *all purpose flour mill 3/4 C of Hard White Wheat & 3/4 Cup of Soft White Wheat in your WonderMill on the Pastry setting.

Then sift 2 Cups worth of the flour into a food processor with the ‘S’ blade in place.

Place lid on food processor then add salt and pulse once or twice.

Remove chilled 3/4 C Organic Raw Virgin Coconut oil from the refrigerator and cube inside the measuring cup with a cold knife. Try not to touch the cubes much with your hands.  Place cubes back in the fridge if they begin to melt any before the next step.

Drop 2-3 cubes into the flour/salt mixture and pulse 4-5 times.  Continue the drop/pulse steps with 2-3 cubes of chilled coconut oil until all are incorporated and the mixture resembles a course meal or grits.

Remove chilled water from fridge (you may not use all of this)

Turn food processor on to continuous and SLOWLY drizzle a small, but steady stream of ice water down the shoot of the food processor as it runs.

Pause occasionally to see if dough begins to pull from the base and sides and form a ‘ball’ once it begins to ‘ball up’ stop the food processor.

Remove the ball of wonderful pie crust and place in a plastic bag in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make the empanadas

…or you can top the best Pot Pie EVER with this or bake it as a pie crust, or well… lots of stuff….. But for now, let’s make the Vegan Chocolate filling :)

Chocloate Empanadas vegan 2Vegan Chocolate Filling:

  • 1/2 C Cocoa Powder
  • 2 C Organic Evaporate Cane Crystals (Raw Sugar)
  • 2 TBS Coconut
  • 1/4-3/4 C Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional if using Vanilla Almond Milk)

In a sauce pan combine first three ingredients and a scant amount of almond milk.

Over a medium-low heat melt coconut oil, sugar and cocoa together stirring continually until smooth.

Add almond milk a little at a time until mixture resembles a very soft ‘meatloaf’ consistency (gross, I know but that’s the best way to picture it).

Remove from heat.

 

Shaping Empanadas:

First decide oven baked or pan fried method.  If baking, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and make sure rack is centered.

Roll out pie crust into thin 1/4 inch sheet on either a foured or oiled surface.

With a biscuit cutter cut as many circles as you want.

Fill the center of each pie crust circle with 2 TBS of chocolate filling.

Wet the outer rim of the circle (that will become the inner part once folded) with one finger dabbed in water.

Fold over and crimp with fork tines.

Now that they are all finished you can line them on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes or pan fry them in a little coconut oil (very little) on the stove top until golden brown!

Enjoy responsibly…these are  addictive and really rich!

Super Tasty 7-Grain Hot Cereal (Vegan Gluten-free )

  

This is one of my favorite recipes for a hearty, hot whole grain breakfast on a cold winter morning.

There are a few keys to making this this hearty super tasty 7-grain hot cereal:

1. The varied coarseness you get from each type of grain when grinding in the Wondermill Jr. Deluxe

2. Soaked grain nutrition (easier digestion and creaminess)

3. Using the Slow Cooker for it the night before (easy to wake up to a hot breakfast)

ISuper Tasty 7-Grainngredients:

Serves two

  • 1/4 C Course Ground Corn Meal
  • 1/4 C Course Ground Brown Rice
  • 1/2 C  Gluten Free Rolled Oats*
  • 2 TBS Course Ground **Buckwheat (if toasted it’s Kasha)
  • 2 TBS Quinoa
  • 2 TBS Amaranth Seed
  • 2 TBS Millet
  • Dash of Sea Salt
  • Approx 2 Cups of nut milk
  • Vanilla Extract (optional)
  • 1 TBS Pecan Pieces (or nut of your choice)
  • 1 TBS Cranberries (or dried fruit of your choice)
  • 1 tsp Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Raw Coconut Oil
  • 1 TBS Hemp Hearts (optional)
  • Agave Nectar or Maple Syrup to top.

Mid-day grind each grain separately in your Wondermill Jr. Deluxe and combine the first 12 ingredients to soak all day in an UNPLUGGED crock pot.

The night before you hope to enjoy this as breakfast simply add 1/2 to 3/4 Cup of water to your crock pot, stir and turn on to low (8 to 10hrs) and cover.

The next morning enjoy!  Add coconut oil and if needed, more nut milk for consistency sake. Serve in a bowl topped with any one of the remaining ingredients to your liking (or make up your own toppings).

Get your bowl, agave nectar or maple syrup…dish out this 7 Grain Super Tasty Hot Cereal and enJOY!

Best Blessings, Donna Miller

 

*Oats may contain trace a gluten if you cannot find gluten free oats simply omit and reduce liquid or replace with 1/4 C of ground corn or rice or 1/8 C of each.

**In the photos I had raw  buckwheat (hulls/husks still on). That does tend to give the cereal a very strong, almost bitter taste.  My favorite buckwheat of choice is either a toasted (kasha) or hulled/de-hulled (hulls removed) buckwheat which is a light tan/golden color and has a far milder flavor.

Nutty Date Gift Loaves (Whole Wheat)

  

Nutty Date Gift LoavesNutty Date Gift Loaves

Fall is absolutely my favorite time to bake.  The minute the leaves turn their fall colors my oven starts to work over time. And with Thanksgiving (my favorite) around the corner, I look for ways to share the gift of home-made, fresh-milled goodies.  Smaller loaves are the perfect gift.

This recipe can have any puree base flavor you’d like (or have on hand): applesauce, pumpkin puree, prune puree, banana puree (what I used) or butternut squash puree. Other than a slightly differing base flavor, the recipe will turn out great!

Whole Wheat “Beer” Bread

  

I’ve never done well with sour dough. Not sure why.  So I’ve always experimented with ways to give simple loaf bread more depth of flavor.  Just like the Buttermilk Bread & Potato Bread (previous posts of mine here) I tried to raise the fermentation process by making Whole Wheat “Beer” Bread.

Now for those who will not partake or buy actual beer itself, the non-alcoholic beer actually works great! So you can get this same crusty, rich taste without having to purchase beer if you prefer not to.

Admittedly, in the one pictured below, I made a mistake and hit the wrong cycle on the bread machine (I always use ‘Dough Only’ until this error) and it baked IN the machine (gasp!)  But it still tasted great!
