apple cake | Wolf Gourmet

Grandma’s Apple Cake

She never uses a recipe, just creams the butter and sugar, adds a few scoops of flour and a teaspoon or two of some other ingredients, dollops in sour cream and some chopped apples, stirs it all up in a cracked stoneware bowl and pours it into a baking dish generously greased with butter. Sliced almonds are sprinkled on top. She bakes it at 350. That’s all I have. You probably have one of these bakers in your life. There are no splattered cookbook pages or newspaper clippings from the 1980s in their kitchen. The classic stable of recipes is… Read more

Enjoy All the Berries with Mixed Berry Crisp

A favorite aunt used to bring a fruit crisp every Sunday for our family dinner. The winter months usually featured a homey, cinnamon-filled apple crisp, but by the time May rolled around, we were eagerly awaiting the change from apple crisp to some kind of berries. Strawberries were usually the first to appear. One-fruit crisps were her standby for years, and at her age she wasn’t making any changes. We pleaded with her to make a strawberry-rhubarb crisp too many times to count, and combining these two was as adventurous as she would get. Fast forward to today. There are… Read more

Parker House rolls

Parker House Rolls

With six cooking modes, the Wolf Gourmet countertop oven delivers all the features you expect from a full-size oven. Today’s recipe incorporates two modes, PROOF and BAKE. The set temperature for PROOF mode is 80°F, the optimal temperature for a yeast dough to rise. Why? When yeast is added to flour and water, it starts consuming the sugars in the flour and releases carbon dioxide, which makes the dough rise in bulk. Yeast cells are more active in warm environments, and the PROOF mode provides the ideal, draft-free environment for yeast to work its magic. The origin of these deliciously… Read more
