Kitchen Elf Recipes


Wizards and Witches everywhere! I give to you our first delicious exhibition from the Hogwarts Kitchen Elves!

Hello all! Well, Ive had this wonderful book the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook by Dinah Bucholz for some time now and havent made much out of it yet. Being now that I am a Kitchen Elf at least half of the time here in Hogwarts, I thought I should get to work, so to speak. My first creation from this wonderful book I chose because, first: the name is fun and second: Ive eaten something by the same name at a Renaissance Pleasure Faire years ago and it was scrumptious.
Today, we made Toad in the Hole.
The author, Dinah, put this in her Nine Recipes from the Goblet under the Lunch and Dinner in the Dining Hall, chapter 7. In Chapter 23 of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, it says The pale blue Beauxbatons carriage looked like a large, chilly, frosted pumpkin while the Durmstrang ships portholes were glazed with ice, the rigging white with frost. The house-elves (yay me!!!) down in the kitchen were outdoing themselves with a series of rich, warming stews and savory puddings. This is a bread pudding and if you have never made one before, you are in for an easy and delicious treat.

Toad in the Hole
Firstly, the recipe:
1 C all-purpose flour
tsp salt
2 large eggs
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 C whole milk
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 pound of your favorite sausages (I bought mine from Sams Club and they were chicken with garlic and mozzarella cheese inside. Heart attack, but delicious!)

Directions
1)  To make the batter, whisk together the flour and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until smooth, then whisk in the butter, then the milk. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2) Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Ferenheight. Pour the oil into a medium-size rectangular baking dish and put into the oven to heat. In the meantime, brown the sausages in a skillet on both sides. When the oil in the baking dish is hot, carefully remove the pan from the oven. Lay the sausages in the pan. Remove the batter from the refrigerator, give it one final whisk, and pour it over the sausages. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake another 10 minutes, until the pudding is puffed up around the edges and the edges are brown.
Serves 4


This is what mine came out looking like. My oven sucks, just so you know. I got mine puffed up and cooked through, but not really golden and Id left mine in there nearly 10 minutes longer than the time called for. Granted, I used a smaller square dish instead of rectangle, which made for a longer cooking time due to less of a surface area. My bad. And believe me when I tell you, you must wait the full 30 minutes for the flour to soak up as much milk as it possibly can in the refrigerator. Why, you ask? Because if you dont, you will get a runny pudding that wont puff nearly as well, but will taste grossly like straight flour. Please, dont ask me how I know this.
Now, this was pretty tasty. Not my favorite, but tasty. I feel the pudding part could have had more flavor and I will try again next time adding a variety of spices like cumin and cayenne. Other than that, it was quite delicious. Even my 6 and 3 year old loved it and they are VERY hard to please.
I also added salad to make myself feel better about the straight carbs and meat Wink. Never mind the fact that it's drenched in Ranch and already half eaten..

Want to lighten the recipe up a bit? Use coconut oil instead of butter, and low fat milk in place of whole. I am sure you could also use gluten free flour in this. I personally plan on trying almond flour at some point for a sweeter flavor.
All in all, I think I would say that 4 out of 5 house elves give it their stamp of approval.
Enjoy!


Oh, and for the record, this looked and tasted nothing like what I'd had at the Renaissance Faire. That was more of a strange burrito...
This was much more managable and I can guarantee my children would never eat the other of the same name.

15 more centimeters of knitting to go before I finish my OWL! Thats about 48 more rows of 60 stitches, or less than 3000 stitches. At the speed I'm knitting rows right now, it should be finished this week Smiley Four more hours of knitting, tops! Which means I'll finish it just before winter is officially over, but it will probably only start being used come november. Spring seems to really have kicked off yesterday, people everywhere are heading outside and it is SO sunny here! The weather is really "Summer in the sun, winter in the shade" though, it's not superwarm yet. Still, today we're getting 14C, a week ago, we barely made 4C!

I'm ready to tackle a sping owl and man is things rolling along on here.

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Potions Option 1
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spring Makeover Part 1
Since spring is on its way Im going to give my work space a crafty facelift. Im going to start off small because I dont want to get overwhelm by too big of a project and end up stopping in the middle.  I will be redoing my chair cushion, two throw pillows, four coasters, two placemats for my table, and a no sew fleece throw. 

Techniques: Bobble, triple, double, half-double, single crochet stitches, and basic hand sewing stitches.

Materials: Leftover yarn, fabric from my stash, old pillows, and seat cushion.

My goal is to be finished by March 28, 2013. The first week I will be working on the pillows. Week two, I will start the seat cushion and placemats. Week three I will begin the throw blanket and finish the placemats.
