BASIC WAFFLE RECIPE
HOT SPICED APPLE CIDER CHOCO-PEANUT BUTTER DELIGHTS
LUCIA BUNS (LUSSEKATTER) 50 g fresh yeast or 1 packet of dry yeast (note: sweet dough yeast is best to use) 150 g butter 500 ml milk 1 g saffron (or half a teaspoon of turmeric) 150 g sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons cardamum Approx. 1.3 liters plain flour For decoration: 1 beaten egg for glazing Raisins Melt butter. Add milk. Crumble yeast in a mixing bowl in some of the lukewarm milk/butter mix. Then add rest of wet ingredients (skip this step if you’re using dry yeast). Mix in sugar, salt, cardamum and saffron. Add flour. Knead until a nice firm dough (if you’re using dry yeast; add packet to flour before adding to the mix). Cover in plastic wrap and let raise until double the size. Sprinkle some flour on a kneading area and knead dough well. Cut dought into pieces and roll them to long finger thick sausages. Shape them into the famous Lusekatter double spiral. Place on a baking sheet and cover in plastic. Allow to raise for 15 minutes. Glaze with beaten egg and decorate with raisins (usually one raisin in each “eye” of the swirl). Bake at 225 C for 5-8 minutes (depending on size). Let them cool on a rack. They taste best lukewarm.

BREAKFAST BUNS This recipe is a very â€œfeel-itâ€? recipe. If you feel that the dough is too wet, add extra seeds, oatmeal or flour.

Add the water, salt and oil. Stir the mixture together until the yeast is completely dissolved. Add the seeds and oatmeal to the yeast mixture and stir until blended thoroughly. Add a little flour at a time, while stirring, until the dough is thickened. Cover the dough with a towel and place in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, preheat the oven to 200 C. Using a spoon, scoop the dough into small buns onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown.

Empty date mixture into a bowl and add the peanut butter and cocoa powder. Using an electric hand mixer, blend until smooth. The mixture will be very thick and sticky. Place a bit of cocoa powder in a shallow bowl and the shredded coconut in another. Rub a little coconut oil on your hands to keep the date mixture from sticking, and form into small balls. Coat the balls with the cocoa and/or coconut and place on a plate. Refrigerate to firm and serve!
