Recipe for Onion Cheese Burger Buns

What You Need

  • 6 ¾ cups flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages dry active yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons softened butter or margarine
  • 2 cup hot water
  • 1 ½ cups grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup minced onion

 

How to Make It

Allow the butter or margarine to soften to room temperature by placing it out onto the kitchen counter about 20 minutes before preparation time.

Sift together 2 cups flour, sugar, and salt into a large mixing bowl and then stir in the dry active yeast. Stir to combine and then add the softened butter or margarine.

Gradually add the hot water from the tap to the dry ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed, while occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl. Gradually stir in 1 cup flour until the mixture forms a batter. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed, while occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl. Stir in the grated cheddar cheese and minced onion. Add just enough flour to form soft dough.

Prepare a clean dry surface by lightly flouring it and then pour the dough out onto the prepared surface. Flour your hands and knead the dough for about 8 to 10 minutes until the dough is elastic and smooth in texture.

Form the dough into a ball and place it in a lightly oiled bowl. Turn the dough in the bowl to cover the surface with oil. Cover with a clean dry dishtowel in a warm, draft free area for about 1 hour or until the dough is doubled in size.

Punch the dough down and then turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough evenly into 20 pieces. Form each piece into a smooth ball. Place the dough balls about 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover with a clean dry dishtowel in a warm, draft free area for about 1 hour or until the dough is doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit when you are ready to bake.

Place the baking pans and onion cheese burger buns into the preheated oven to bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet and allow the buns to cool on wire racks.

These delicious buns will go well with any grilled hamburger recipe. If you are searching for the best hamburger recipe you can find, you can find them by visiting us on our website today. We have many mouthwatering meal planning ideas to share with you and your family.

These old fashioned butter cakes are still very tasty and this mocha butter cake is no exception. What is even better, with one of the modern electric stand mixers it becomes very easy to make these cakes. It is not necessary to do all the beating and mixing by hand as a stand mixer can handle it with ease.

There is a wide variety of machines to choose from and if you are interested in buying one, here are a few handy tips for you:

Not all are strong enough to handle the creaming of butter and sugar. So, you have to do your homework and make sure the machine you get is up to it.

Looking for an electric stand mixer can be fun. The choice is really huge and some models come in really exciting colors and you will get the color just right to complement the decor of your kitchen.

Most of these also have a wide range of attachments. It is best to consider your other needs before you make any investment. Think about attachments such as blenders, pasta machines and choppers. Make sure you do not purchase unnecessary attachments just because they look like fun as this can send up the price, resulting in an unnecessary high outlay of money.

Keep in mind that if you want to make bread, using a dough hook, you really need a strong machine. The mere fact that a dough hook is included does not necessarily means that it is up to really hard kneading; it may only be suitable for small amounts of dough. So choose wisely.

I’ve kept you long enough now, so let us get down to the mocha butter cake recipe.

Mocha Butter Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 2 eggs separated
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup strong black coffee
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Pinch of salt

 

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Prepare the cake tins by lining and greasing them
  3. Thoroughly cream the butter and sugar
  4. Add the egg yolks one at a time and beat well after each addition
  5. Add the salt
  6. Add the sifted flour and baking powder mixture alternatively with the coffee
  7. Stir in the walnuts
  8. Fold in the whipped whites of the eggs
  9. Bake the cake for 35-45 minutes until it springs back when lightly pressed.
  10. The time necessary will depend on the size and shape of your tin. A bread tin, for instance, will bake faster than a round tin.

 

Try this mocha butter cake recipe. Your family will love it. The cake is tasty enough as it is, but if you prefer, you may use frosting to decorate the cake.

Good news, I know about a machine that is ideal for all kinds of baking. Have a look at the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixers. Go There now at: http://mykitchenonline.info/kitchenaid-artisan-5-quart-stand-mixers/

Wonderful Homemade Syrup

This is a recipe for pancake syrup that has been called so good that you will want to lick the pan. It is a very simple recipe and does not take very long to make at all. All you need to make this is one half (1/2) cup of butter, one (1) cup of sugar, one (1) cup of buttermilk, one (1) tablespoon of pure vanilla extract, one (1) tablespoon of corn syrup, one fourth (1/4) teaspoon of freshly ground cinnamon, and one half (1/2) teaspoon of baking soda.

Get your butter, sugar, buttermilk, pure vanilla extract, corn syrup and your cinnamon and put them all into a nice, big saucepan. And turn that eye up to medium high heat. All of these things are going to come to a nice simmer and once that happens you want to whisk in your baking soda, slowly. After the baking soda is whisked in and you cannot see it anymore, let it cook for about ten (10) seconds and then take it off the eye. You want to serve it warm, because there is just nothing like warm syrup on pancakes.

Prepping all your ingredients may take about five (5) or six (6) minutes and cooking time is going to be about the same. This recipe should only take about 10 minutes from start to finish. That is–if you know what you’re doing and you don’t burn your syrup. If you do that, I would add another five minutes to do it again, and maybe seven or eight minutes to clean that burnt pan.

This is a lot different then your normal ‘maple syrup’, it’s got a much more rich, buttery flavor to it that adds a lot to pancakes. This way you get your butter and your syrup on those ‘flapjacks’ in one swoop instead of two. The recipe yields two and a half (2.5) cups of syrup, which depending on how many growing boys or husbands with big appetites you have in the house will make eight to sixteen (8-16) servings. I would say in my house it is closer to ten (10).

I would not call this homemade pancake syrup healthy, but it is comparable to adding normal maple syrup and butter to your pancakes. Each serving is around one hundred and eighty (180) calories and ten (10) grams of fat.

Please do enjoy.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t enjoy Olive Garden Recipes but I can’t understand what all the fuss is about. Sure, they do some great pasta and yep, I love their tiramisu, but surely anyone can cook these dishes themselves at home?

My folks just love Olive Garden food and are steadily working their way through the menu. What with their ruby wedding anniversary imminent, I had promised weeks earlier to take them out for a meal, but I was seriously strapped for cash and desperately wondering how I could re-create one of their favorite meals at home. It can’t be that difficult, I thought, as I desperately scoured the internet for recipes. The trouble was, I found, so many recipes all claiming to be authentic and from the hands of the restaurant themselves, when in truth they were all different. What on earth was I going to do?

Now, I’m no great master chef and I’m more used to cooking a simple lemon chicken recipe than I am to cooking any of the tempting dishes to be savored at my local Olive Garden but I was certainly up for the challenge if I could just figure out some way of finding out what was in the recipes. Perhaps I could phone up and ask to speak to the chef? No that wouldn’t work. It was a friend who finally hit upon the idea of bringing me back some sample food so that I could play around with it and see if I could suss out the ingredients and work out the recipe. Here are three of the steps that he suggested:

1. Choose something that seems relatively simple and then start to make a basic version. So, if it is chicken in a white sauce for example, start off with a standard bechamel sauce and then decide if it needs to be sweeter or sharper. Has it got a creamy taste or a tomato base? Can you taste wine in it? Break your sauce down into small portions and experiment with flavors until you hit the nearest taste to the original. Often it is something really miniscule such as a dash of tabasco sauce or a grating of nutmeg. It’s easy for your tastebuds to become overwhelmed, so take your time and drink sips of water in between tastings.

2. If you’re trying to copy a sweet pie, you may touch upon flavors by eating the pastry apart from the filling. Can you taste cinnamon or coconut perhaps? Try and get clues from the color. A darkish color could mean there is brown sugar in the pastry, a lighter color may indicate it’s just a vanilla wafer.

3. Break everything down into smaller components and keep tasting and adjusting and repeating until you’re as near as damn it. Even if you’re not right on the money, friends probably won’t be able to tell the difference.

The following weekend and the Day of Judgement dawned. I had given it my best shot and produced what I though were two reasonable replicas of some great Olive Garden fayre. My folks made some very encouraging comments, although these may have been fuelled by too much wine, but overall I have to say the meal was a success.

But now I understand what all the fuss is about. It’s not just about eating any old Italian dish, it’s about eating a masterpiece of culinary delight that has been loving created following a secret recipe that has probably been handed down through the ages. Yes, you can with a lot of time and hassle make something similar, but it is that magic ingredient that gives all Olive Garden Recipes a true touch of authenticity.

Gingerbread pancakes have a unique flavor that many people love. Try these the next time you are making breakfast for a surprise and treat.

Ingredients you will need:

2 cups of flour
1/4 cup of baking powder
2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/4 cup of ground hazelnuts
2 cups of milk
4 egg whites
1/4 cup dark molasses
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Directions

First you will be mixing the dry ingredients and your will need a large bowl for this. Take your flour, cocoa powder, ginger, baking powder, ground cloves, cinnamon, and hazelnuts in the bowl and mix them all together. Next, you will begin adding your wet ingredients to the dry mix. Add the milk, molasses, vegetable oil, and eggs to the bowl. Use a wire whisk or large fork to mix all the ingredients thoroughly until most of the clumps are gone.

Next you are going to get ready to cook your pancakes! Grab a frying pan or griddle, cover it with a light layer of oil, and place it over medium-high heat on your stove. Use about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake you are going to make and pour it onto the pan. Cook each side of the pancake until they are a golden brown color. Remove your pancakes from the pan and they are ready to serve.

Tip: Check the batter for bubbles to know when the first side of your pancake is done.

These gingerbread pancakes provide a hearty, tasty meal that will stick with you all day. Now, sit down and enjoy your homemade pancakes with your favorite toppings. Some popular options to go with these pancakes are maple syrup, melted butter sprinkled with brown sugar, or just a little whipped cream for a treat.
