By now you ought to know that pretty much everything is possible to cook with a coffee maker. So today’s recipe shouldn’t surprise you much. Apple chutney is quite simple to cook with a coffee maker. It takes a little while though (as with all coffee maker made recipes) but the result is just as good and tasty as if you would have cooked it on a stove.
Or I think so anyway. I have never tried to cook apple chutney on a stove. That seems boring.
- 3 apples
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 chili
- 1/2 dl white wine vinegar
- 1 dl water
- 1.5 dl of sugar
- 2 tbsp honey
- Lemon juice from 1/4 lemon
- Chipotle chili
- Chili Seasoning
- Some other chili as well
Start your coffee maker and frizzle chopped onion with oil, ginger and chili in the coffee maker carafe for half an hour.
Dice apples, grate the carrot and add this along with the vinegar, sugar, honey, lemon juice and spices into the carafe and pour the water into the brewer. After a while season with more spices, I made my chutney really hot and nice (as you see) with all sorts of chili varieties I found at home. Let it simmer until everything has become as messy as you prefer it. Turn off the coffeemaker.
I recommend that you serve this yummie and spicy chutney with some cheese and crackers, but it will work just as fine together with a big, fat and juicy steak!

Spoon the chutney into a sterilized jar and seal while hot.
Palt (aka pitepalt), or potato dumplings, is apparently a traditional Swedish dish like meatballs, smorgasbord or blood pudding. I didn’t know much about palt, probably because it’s much more common in the very north of Sweden. Since I’m from the far south I never tried it before I made it in my coffee maker.
Taste wise it’s not my favorite traditional Swedish dish, but it definitely serves it’s purpose. It’s is extremely filling. There’s even an expression called “Paltkoma” (= potato dumpling coma) and I’m not surprised that expression exists.
- 10-15 small potatoes
- 1 dl barley flour
- 0.75 dl flour
- 3 slices of salted pork
- 0.5 tsp salt
- Lingonberry jam
Peel the potatoes, shred them and mix with salt and flour into a dough. Divide this and form it into 5 balls. Insert salted pork (that you have divided into squares) into center of each ball. Roll them between palms to enclose the pork completely and form smooth balls.
Pour water into the brewer, salt in the can and start your coffee maker. When the water has gone through the system slowly place the palt balls in the can and coffee maker cook for 1,5 hour. Turn off your coffee maker.
Drain and place the palt on a plate. Serve with lingonberry jam and a big dollop of butter!
Shred the potatoes. It should be even better shredded than this, but after a misunderstanding it turned out like this.
Moisten your hands and you won’t get sticky fingers.
Finally five perfect palt balls!

Valentine’s Day is called “Alla hjärtans dag” in Sweden and literally that translates “All of the hearts’ day”. So I went and bought three kinds of hearts (didn’t find any more) so it’s not really a “All of the hearts’s day”-recipe, but at least a three hearts’ recipe – lamb, chicken and pig. Well, a four hearts’ recipe if you count the love from your own heart that you’ll put in the making of this dish.
If we put this jibber jabber aside and get to the point. How do you cook heart with a coffee maker? I asked myself that question yesterday and like with the testies recipe I didn’t have a clue. The only thing I knew was that if it taste like liver it’s not right. So when it started to smell like liver during the cooking I got kind of nervous. I don’t know if I imagined the smell, or if the other ingredients hid the taste of liver, because the finished dish didn’t taste like liver.
So, this my friend, is how you cook three different kinds of heart on your coffee maker and make a romantic salad out of it.
1/2 coffee maker plate of pig heart (1 plate is what fits on the coffee maker heater)
1/2 coffee maker plate of lamb heart
1/2 coffee maker plate of chicken hearts
Start your coffee maker and heat the butter directly on the plate. Clear away the gory stuff from the hearts and cut into smaller pieces. Coffee maker fry a plate of lamb and pig heart (50 /50) throughly on each side. The time depends on the sizes of the pieces, for me it took approximately 45 minutes. Twist and turn so the hearts wont get burned. Season with love (salt and pepper) .
Replace the lamb and the pig hearts to all the chickens’ hearts you have prepared. Coffee maker cook them exactly the same as the others. Turn of your coffee maker.
Mix the salad with shared mozzarella and pomegranate. Place the hearts on the bed of salad. Top with grated parmesan and crushed walnuts. Drizzle balsamic vinegar and serve.
There will be blood.
I just love to play with my food (while the angels of the lambs, pigs and chickens all hums “Quit playing games with my heart”).
Actually I don’t really care at all about Valentine’s Day. The “usual” celebration of this day anyway. My approach however to the day and my recipe I find is darn good. This is a recipe that contains a lot of hearts (this makes more sense in Sweden because of the Swedish name for Valentine’s – “All of the hearts’ day”)! There is a large surplus of hearts (and other parts of course) after the animals were slaughtered so this is a good day to celebrate the nose to tail eating instead. So from the bottom of my heart I wish you a lovely All of the hearts’ day.

Valentine’s day is coming up in a couple of days. I think that cheese fondue is a great recipe for this day, and it’s perfect to cook in a coffee maker.
Here’s how you do it.
- 1 dl white wine
- 1 small garlic clove
- 3 dl grated cheese
- Some parmesan
- A few drops of lemon juice
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- White pepper
- Basil leaves
- (+ whatever you would like to dip in the fondue)
Start the coffee maker. Add wine and chopped garlic into the coffee maker can. Heat it for half an hour and add cheese, lemon juice and mustard. Leave it on the heater until the cheese is fully melted. Stir every now and then, it burns quite easily otherwise. Season with white pepper.
Put basil, bread and pepperoni on those fondue thingies that you should put that stuff on (or a fork like we did since we don’t own things like that) and dip it into the melted cheese.
It’s super smart to make fondue in a coffee maker since the food has to be over a heater all the time so it won’t solidify. Just eat it directly from the can, but don’t remember to stir it sometimes (and to turn the cofee maker off when you’ve finished). We also made this with chocolate fondue a while ago and that worked just as well.

“I CAN HAS CHEEZ FONDUE?”
Oooh! A great tip: Put a block candle in the part of the coffee maker where you usually pour water. Tadaaa! You now have a coffee maker lantern. Perfect for romantic fondue dinners with a coffee maker.
When we made chocolate fondue in the coffee maker. Check out the lantern!
Yay, It’s the World Nutella Day!
Thanks to Ewa (that notified me of this day) I’m going to celebrate with a recipe of coffee maker made pancakes with Nutella, bananas and whipped cream.
1,5 hour for three pancakes
- 1 dl flour
- 2 dl milk
- 1 egg
- 1 dash salt
- Whip cream (with caramel color if you want to make it a bit prettier)
- 1 banana
- Optional toppings: Powdered sugar and chocolate sauce
Start the coffee maker and put a small piece of butter on the coffee maker plate. Mix flour, milk, egg and salt smooth.
Scoop the batter onto the coffee maker plate and cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside.
Transfer the pancake to a platter and continue with more butter and the remaining batter. Turn off the coffee maker when finished.
Add Nutella, banana pieces and whipped cream to the pancakes and fold them. Sprinkle some powdered sugar and chocolate over the pancakes, serve and celebrate.
Preparing of the batter.

“GIMME THE FREKKIN NUTELLA, HUMAN!!!!”
Ha! A well known swedish news paper called me yesterday for an interview about the nose to tail trend. I think that she probable called to ask me about my opinion because of my testicle tacos recipe. And I’m glad to get the opportunity to officially be a pro nose to tail person. Because I DO think it’s very important to at least try to cook with “strange” ingredients if you eat meat. At least one time! To say that something you have never tried is disgusting is stupid. If you gladly eat the asses of different animals, why not try the balls as well?
One thing that is disgusting though is pork knuckles. Well, if you ask me. You should try it for yourself and see. Here’s how you can try to cook it with your coffee maker.
6 hours + cooling
- 1 divided knuckle of pork
- 1 onion
- 1 carrot
- 6 pieces of allspice berries
- 2 bay leaves
- White pepper
- A lot of salt (like 2 tbsp of it)
Thaw feet if necessary. Shave, scrub and rinse the halves well. Chop up the onion and the carrot. Put this together with the spices in the coffee maker can. Pour water into the machine and start the coffee maker. Let stand for about 6 hours, or until the meat is soft and starts to detach from the bone.
Let the halves cool off in the stock, this will solidify into some kind of gelatinous mess that will taste wonderful.
No, I actually thought it was disgusting. But my main problem with this dish is that I have an issue with eating meat directly from bones. It’s the same with chicken legs or spare ribs.
But at least I tried it!
They look kind of cute, don’t they?
I love to use ingredients that I have to shave before cooking! <3

It just felt right to eat the pork knuckle naked on the floor.
