Here I am again in “Bigredkitchen”. I am celebrating my invitation the way our family often celebrates birthdays, Christmas and Easter – With a Danish Puff! My wish list for my birthday changed every year but I never changed my breakfast request. Danish Puff Please! Usually it was not decorated with nuts but was covered in the sprinkle color of my choice. My most frequent selection was the pastel variegated circles. Don’t wait for a birthday to make this yummy treat. Everyday can be a celebration!
1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
1 teaspoon almond flavoring (vanilla can be substituted)
1 cup flour
Mix butter and water in sauce pan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat and add flavoring. Beat in flour, and keep beating hard. Add eggs one at a time until mixture looks like the picture to the right.
Pour mixture over top of crust and take almost to edge.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Frost with recipe below, top with nuts or sprinkles, and CELEBRATE!
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 Tablespoon butter
3 Tablespoons milk.
Note- Another great post from my good friend Rindy. Thanks Rindy! Now I am off to make this delicious looking puff as soon as I get back from Whidbey!
