So, I made these this week. They had been on my list since I saw the video how-to a few weeks ago. I realized there was no reason to make one at a time, especially for a family of five, so I waited until I found (and remembered to buy) 5 of the same size cookie cutters. I followed the directions exactly and they worked out really well. There are lots of videos on you tube showing these made in a bain marie, which takes a lot longer. I made these on our large cast iron griddle pan that goes over 2-burners. It's very uneven and the back gets really hot so next time I will cook them at a lower heat. When you look at these online, you can tell they all get really brown/burnt because it takes a bit of time to get the middle cooked. They still taste delicious with the color, but a few of mine got a little to dark.
The butter was so cute, but came off for the actual eating, because it was just too much. Also, 2 of these per person made the kids and adults very full, one each might be better, with some fruit, eggs and bacon. They really are more like a fancy dessert—the texture is light and spongy inside. Very, very yummy and so pleasing to make and stack. The girls added nutella.
In other happy cooking news-
I made hash browns in the waffle iron about an hour ago. Why had I never done this before? I was going to to take a photo but they disappeared too fast. Just freshly grated potato in the food processor, tossed with a little flour, salt, and pepper. That's it. What the heck? So yummy and easy. The internet told me I would never make them any other way again and I think it was right.
