Double Dutch Cherry Muffins

So something cool about today’s recipes is that they actually show the recipes in the movie!


The recipe wasn’t perfect or very detailed, but I followed it as closely as possible. It turned out really well for the muffins. I even made a video for it!

Dutch Apple Pie

This recipe was shown in the film too.

Though…following the recipe straight up didn’t work as well as it did for the muffins.  They had you put 3 sliced apples on top of the cake. That made too much weight on top and dripped too much juice into the cake. It tasted amazing though. Just wasn’t very cake-ish. Someone needs to teach Tim Burton to cook.

  10. 1 tsp baking soda
  11. ½ tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until the mixture is thick and mousse-like.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan with the milk, then pour onto the eggs, whilst continually whisking.
  3. Sift in the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda

Notes
  1. If you are using a bread pan like me, bake for 45-50 minutes. I would also suggest just using 2 apples and layering the cake. Pour half batter, layer apples, pour the rest of the batter, layer other apples

Fondue and Popcorn

There isn’t really a recipe for this. We finally got to use our fondue pot that we got as a wedding gift. We filled it with oil and cooked shrimp, beef, sausage and asparagus in it (as shown in the movie). It was really good even though I burnt myself a few times.


We also cooked popcorn in our fancy movie-theater style popcorn maker. Yum!

 

 


Will it Bring you Back from the Dead?

All the food was great. I do have some ideas that could improve the recipes shown, but we wanted to make them as close as possible.

Verdict:

Muffins – 8/10

Apple Cake – 8.5/10

Fondue – 8.5/10

Popcorn – 8/10

Don’t worry, this will be a quick post, as to not spend much time on the worst Pixar movie ever made.  Granted, it isn’t a BAD movie, it’s just the worst Pixar movie. There isn’t much food shown, cuz well, cars don’t really eat food.

 

Foods Shown

  • Car beer
  • Lemons
  • Taco truck
  • Sushi/ wasabi
  • Oil drink mixes

Tacos

So Mater, with his spy disguise machine, can turn into a taco truck.

I’m not sure who eats the tacos in this world, but they exist. So we made some yummy beef tacos!

Tangled – Hazelnut Soup, Lemon & Raspberry Cupcakes

Quick links: Hazelnut Soup | Lemon and Raspberry CupcakesVerdict

 

When Tangled came out, I saw it, I enjoyed it, but I never got on the Tangled-Obsession bandwagon. I only watched it once, and watching it again for Disney Meals was a real treat. I loved Tangled more than I remembered. I might be on the Tangled-Obsessed bandwagon now. There were a few good foods shown in the movie, however we made most of them.

Rapunzel’s Hazelnut Soup

Perhaps the most notable food in the movie is the Hazelnut soup Mother Gothel promises to make with parsnips. We never actually see the soup, but we decided to make it anyway.

Lemon and Raspberry Cupcakes

When Rapunzel and Flynn are having fun in the city, they are shown eating yellow and pink cupcakes. I could just link to another cupcake recipe because we don’t really know what kind of cupcake it is. So I decided to make some Lemon-Raspberry cupcakes!

Ingredients
  1. 3 cups self-rising flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  3. 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  4. 2 cups white sugar
  5. 4 eggs, at room temperature
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  8. 1 cup whole milk, divided
  9. 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  10. 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
Lemon Cream Icing
  1. 2 cups chilled heavy cream
  2. 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Raspberry Cream Icing
  1. 2 cups chilled heavy cream
  2. 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons raspberry puree
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Line 30 cupcake pan cups with paper liners.
  3. Sift the self-rising flour and salt together in a bowl.
  4. In another bowl, beat the unsalted butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating each egg until incorporated before adding the next.
  5. Mix in the vanilla extract and lemon zest.
  6. Add the raspberries
  7. Gently beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture, one third at a time, alternating with half the milk and half the lemon juice after each of the first 2 additions of flour.
  8. Beat until just combined; do not over mix.
  9. Fill the prepared cupcake liners with batter 3/4 full, and bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 17 minutes.
  10. Let the cupcakes cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before removing them to finish cooling on a rack.
Icing
  1. Beat the cream in a chilled bowl with an electric mixer set on Low until the cream begins to thicken. Add the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice (or raspberry puree), a little at a time, beating after each addition, until fully incorporated. Increase the mixer speed to High, and beat until the icing forms soft peaks, about 5 minutes. Spread on the cooled cupcakes.
