ingredients

Pretzel dough:

1 cup + ⅛ cup warm milk

2 ½ tbsp instant yeast

3 tbsp icing sugar

¼ cup sunflower oil

3 cups flour

To finish:

¼ cup bicarbonate of soda for boiling

1 cup sugar

1 ½ tbsp ground cinnamon

Chocolate drizzle:

100g dark chocolate

50g fresh cream

10 Marie Biscuits, finely crushed

instructions

Pretzel dough:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm milk, yeast and icing sugar. Stir this all together and leave the mixture to sit for +- 5mins to allow the yeast to activate.
  2. Using a stand mixer or handheld mixer fitted with the dough hook, add the mixture to a large bowl along with the sunflower oil, and a cup of flour at a time, mix until a dough begins to form. You can either carry on mixing with the dough hook for about 20mins on medium-high, or knead the mixture by hand. You will know that your dough is ready when you can stretch it and it doesn’t tear.
  3. Once your dough is ready, lightly grease a large bowl with some sunflower oil so that your dough doesn’t stick while proofing. Add your dough to the bowl and cover with cling film. Place the bowl in a warm place for 1 ½ hours so that it can rise.
  4. Once your dough has risen, preheat your oven to 220 C and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
  5. Divide your dough into 8 equal pieces.
  6. Roll each piece into a long thin rope, but not too thin so that it becomes fragile. Make a U shape with the rope. Grading each end, twist them over each other twice and press the ends into the bottom of the pretzel, using a dab of water to seal them in place. Repeat this process with the remaining dough.
  7. Once all your pretzels are ready. Fill a large pot halfway with water and add your bicard. Allow this to come to a steady boil.
  8. One by one, add your pretzel to the boiling water for only 30 seconds. Then remove it a place on your prepared baking sheet.
  9. Once you have boiled all your pretzels, place them into your preheated oven for 10 mins until golden brown. Be careful not to burn them.
  10. Combine your sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. One by one, dip each of your pretzels into the mixture until the tops are evenly coated. You only need to coat one side. Set these aside.

Chocolate Drizzle:

  1. To make the chocolate drizzle, heat your chocolate and cream together in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir until the chocolate and cream are well incorporated into each other and you have a thick glossy mixture.
  2. Take a teaspoon and drizzle the chocolate sauce over the pretzels. Don’t waoory if you don’t use all the chocolate, the remaining bit can be used as a dipping sauce afterwards.
  3. Sprinkles your crushed Marie Biscuits over the pretzels and they are ready to be devoured. These are best eaten immediately.

STRAWBERRY WHIRLS® VANILLA CUPCAKES

about

Use BAKERS Strawberry Whirls® biscuits to create tasty bite-sized Vanilla Cupcakes, with a berry filled and cream cheese frosting! The perfect Festive Season treat!

 

ingredients

For the cupcakes:

1 box Strawberry Whirls®

1 ⅓ cups cake flour

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda

110g unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 large eggs

½ cup buttermilk

For the berry filling:

(This can be store-bought strawberry jam, or you can make it yourself)

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tbsp sugar

For the cream cheese frosting:

250g cream cheese at room temperature

110g unsalted butter at room temperature

1 tbsp vanilla essence

3 cups sifted icing sugar

instructions

For the cupcakes:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C, grease and line a muffin tray.
  2. Using a knife, gently separate the one side of a Strawberry Whirl, repeat with all the remaining biscuits.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt and bicarb. Set aside.
  4. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or a handheld mixer, add the butter and sugar to a bowl. Mix on medium-high for about 3-5 mins, until the mixture is pale and fluffy.
  5. Add in the vanilla essence and eggs, one at a time, ensuring that each egg is mixed through thoroughly before adding the next. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  6. Reduce the speed to low and alternate mixing in the flour and buttermilk until your mixture has just come together, being careful not to overmix.
  7. Add a tiny dollop of batter to each cupcake wrapper, almost as if you were lining the wrapper with the batter. This will ensure that the cookie doesn’t stick to the wrapper.
  8. Take the sides of your cookies that have the strawberry whirl and cream and press top side down into the batter. Fill the cupcake tin with the remaining batter.
  9. Bake your cupcakes for about 25-30mins, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Allow these to cool completely. Once cooled, using a sharp knife, scoop a hole out the centre of each cupcake for your berry filling.

For the berry filling:

  1. If making your own, start this before your cupcakes so that it has time to cool.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a pot.
  3. Bring this to the boil and then turn down the heat allowing the mixture to simmer for about 20 mins, stirring regularly and breaking up any big clumps.
  4. Allow to cool completely.
  5. Before transferring to a piping bag.

For the frosting:

  1. While your cakes are in the oven you can get started on your frosting.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the cream cheese and butter. Mix on a medium speed for about 2 mins.
  3. Slowly add in the powdered sugar until it is well incorporated into the mixture. Once combined, add the vanilla essence and food colouring and mix for another 30 seconds.

To assemble:

  1. Fill each cupcake hole with your berry filling.
  2. Cover the tops of the cupcake with your cream cheese frosting and add the remaining frosting to a piping bag.
  3. Add one of your leftover cookies on top of each cupcake.
  4. Pipe a dollop of frosting on top of each biscuit and decorate with sprinkles or edible flowers.
