Welcome to the DisneyMeals Halloween Special! This year we did Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie! We’re huge dog lovers here in the DisneyMeals household, as well as Tim Burton fans. So this movie worked out well for us.
- Dutch apple cake
- Double dutch cherry muffins
- Dog bday cake
- Hot dog and soda
- Salad and asparagus
- Meat, shrimp, sausage, fondue
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!
- 1 C Sugar
- 2 C Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp Soda
- ¾ c butter
- ½ c milk
- ½ c cherries
- ½ c double cream
- Cut the cherries into small pieces
- Melt the Butter
- In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, flour, soda and milk. Mix well.
- Pour the mixture into a muffin tray and bake for 30 minutes.
- Before serving decorate each muffin with a cherry and add some double cream on the top
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.
- 2 Eggs
- 1 c flour
- 1 c milk
- 1 c white sugar
- ½ c brown sugar
- ½ c butter
- 3 cooking apples
- ½ c cream
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until the mixture is thick and mousse-like.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan with the milk, then pour onto the eggs, whilst continually whisking.
- Sift in the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda
- Pour the mixture into a square baking tin.
- Arrange the apple slices over the top and bake for 20-25 minutes.
- 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!
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.
