Wake ‘n Bakelava Cups
Ingredients: ½ cup pistachios ½ cup walnuts ½ cup almonds Zest of 1 orange (to make a packed teaspoon full) ¼ cup, plus 3 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 teaspoon cinnamon ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract 2 boxes mini fillo shells (15 shells in each) ½ cup, plus 1 ½ tablespoons Terrapin Wake ‘n Bake beer ¼ cup honey
Place mini fillo shells in wells of two mini cupcake pans. Add 1 teaspoon of the nut mixture into each shell. Bake at 300° until filling is hot, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat add ½ cup Wake ‘n Bake, ¼ cup sugar and honey to bring a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and cook until reduced and slightly thickened to make a syrup. This may take as long as 20 minutes. Pour 1 teaspoon syrup into each cup and allow it to soak in then repeat with another teaspoon. Refrigerate at least five hours or overnight.
Note: Unsalted nuts were used.
2010 Wake N Bake Off Winning Recipe from Peter Shoun and Phillip Brettschneider
Ingredients: 6 egg yolks ½ cup white granulated sugar 2 cup cream (heavy) ½ tsp vanilla extract 4 drops raspberry extract 150 mL (10 tbsp) Wake-n-Bake Fresh raspberries 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar Old bourbon
Directions: Preheat oven to 300⁰ F In large bowl, combine yolks and white sugar. Heat cream slowly until small bubbles form, then pour slowly into yolk and egg mixture, stirring continuously. Add beer and extracts. When mixture is even and smooth, pour into ramekins. Place ramekins in towel lined baking pans or dishes, and fill dishes with water until ramekins are half submerged. Cover dishes with aluminum foil and place on top rack of oven. Cook about 30-50 minutes, checking every 5 minutes after 30. The custard should be set and jiggle slightly when the dishes are moved. Remove ramekins and allow to cool 3 hours ,or overnight at maximum, in the refrigerator. Before chilling, cover with plastic wrap with the wrap touching the top of the custards to prevent drying. Combine brown sugar and about an ounce of bourbon (more bourbon requires a longer torching) into a paste/syrup. Cover all custards with an even layer of the syrup, torch in small, quick circles with a culinary (butane) torch until the water has evaporated and the crust has caramelized slightly to a rich golden brown. Garnish with raspberries and serve immediately.
