Traditional Swedish coffee maker made “Äggatårta” (=egg cake)

Aaaw, the “Äggatårta” (=egg cake) brings back so many beautiful memories. It’s a very traditional Swedish recipe and I don’t remember any christmas, midsummer, period party, wedding, easter or birthday without the Äggatårta. Since easter is just around the corner I will now show you how to cook an Äggatårta with your coffee maker. Do I need to tell you that the higher Äggatårta the better..?

If you don’t know how to serve your ugly eggs on your uninspiring easter table… Serve them like this.

Cooking with your coffee maker

Time

  • Depends on how high you want to make it. This one took 5 hours. Worth every second.

Ingredients

(for the Äggatårta in this post)

  • 11 eggs
  • Lots of mayonnaise
  • Lots of Kalles kaviar (oh, you’ll probably have to import that one, right?)
  • Pepper
  • Butter

Instructions

This Äggatårta is build by hard boiled and turned over eggs, glued with mayonnaise and then decorated with the Kalles kaviar.

Put six of the eggs in the coffee maker carafe and pour water into the coffee brewer. Start your coffee maker. The eggs have to be hard boiled so I coffee maker cooked them for almost 1½ hour (just to be super sure (well, I also might have forgot about them for a while…)). Pour off the warm water, dunk them in some cool water and shell them.

Melt butter directly on the heater. Crack an egg on it and fry it pretty hard on both sides. It takes about 30 minutes to make a turned over egg. The Äggatårta in the picture got four turned over eggs. Since it’s important that all of the turned over eggs are perfectly round and have the same size, the coffee maker heater is the perfect weapon of choice for this, even though it takes some time. Turn off the coffee maker when you’re done.

Construction time! Divide all the hard boiled eggs in half, except for one. Put a turned over egg on a plate. Place three egg halves onto the turned over egg. Glue them together with mayonnaise and season with pepper. Go on like that until you place the last turned over egg. Now you’ll have one whole egg, and one egg half left. Shred the whole egg and top nicely with the thin egg slices.And now decoration time – aka Kalles kaviar time! String a lot of caviar over the whole cake. Put the last egg half on top and decorate with even more Kalles. Yum!

Now, let’s get this easter party started!

How to cook a birthday cake for cats – VIDEO!

Haha, this is my favorite video recipe so far. We had so much fun when we filmed it, I almost puked a numerous of times, the poor photographer couldn’t escape the disgusting smell, Zappa was all over the place, Gucci was depressed (but I cheered her up with a party hat on top of her cone of shame) and Iggy almost died (fortunately that was edited).

WHAT A PARTY!

cooking with your coffee maker

Time

  • 3 hours (including cooling)

Ingredients

  • 1 bowl of dry foods
  • 1 pkg. of liver pâté
  • Some sheets of ham
  • Wet food
  • Shrimps
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Cat treats

Instructions

Add the dry food into the carafe and pour water into the brewer. Start your coffee maker and cook it until the dry food loosen up properly. Season with shrimps, stir and drain extra water if needed. Add an egg yolk and stir some more. Turn off your coffee maker.

Wrap the inside of an heart formed bowl (or whatever form you got) with cling film (this will make it easier to remove cake from bowl) and add some of the dry food mixture in the bottom. Layer with ham, shrimps, wet food, more dry food mixture, cat treats or other stuff that your cat fancies. Let the cake cool and stiff for a while in the freezer.

Remove the cake from the bowl and remove the cling film. Frost the cake with liver pâté and decorate it with cat treats, garlic press pressed pâté and top with a flower of ham.

Serve the cake accompanied with a bowl of yummy cat milk.

Purrfect!

Cinnamon bun day!

Every year on October 4th we Swedes celebrate Cinnamon Bun Day. As you will see, in this special cinnamon bun post, I have baked many different types these last couple of years. 

Time

That depends on the device you use and if you bake from scratch. But at least a couple of hours.

Ingredients

  • 1 package of instant dough. Or google another recipe if you’d like to bake from scratch.
  • Lots of butter
  • Lots of sugar
  • Lots of cinnamon
  • Pearl sugar

Instructions

The preparations for all of the different sorts are the same. Just read the instant dough package when preparing the dough.

how to cook with your coffee maker

I prefer to buy those packages of instant dough because I think it’s boring to make a dough from scratch and it takes forever.

how to cook with your coffee maker

This is the heart of cinnamon buns. Cinnamon, sugar and butter.

 

The oven baked ones:

Most people now bake the buns in their oven and I’ve tried that as well. I burned them.

Oven baked ones.

It sure is boring to oven bake cinnamon buns so here’s some other, more fun, types.

 

The sandwich grill baked ones:

Place the buns into the sandwich grill. Press.

Tadaa! Baking time: Just a couple of minutes. A great way to bake the buns!

 

The coffee maker baked ones:

I’ve baked three different types of cinnamon buns with my coffee maker…

1. The pizza sized model.

Shape it like a small pizza in size of the coffee maker heater. Place it onto the buttered coffee maker heater.

This is Zappa’s favorite. Baking time: 30 minutes.

2. The praline sized model.

Iggy was in charge of baking this one. Baking time: 30 minutes.

Now to my favorite way of baking cinnamon buns…

 

The hair cruncher baked ones:

I don’t know the English name of this device… Hair cruncher? Hair waffler? Place the bun between the waffled shaped arms. Press.

Baking time: A couple of minutes.

I just love the shape of them!

Do I even have to explain how lovely your hair will smell the next time you will waffle your hair? Way better than after making this recipe

Which one is your favorite?

ROSKILDE FESTIVAL

YAAAAY! On sunday Roskilde Festival opens. I can’t wait! We’re driving down south to Lund and Malmö tomorrow and will leave the cats with Dan’s brother and his family. And I’m going to spend some time with my niece, Thilde. This is Thilde.

how to cook food with a coffee maker

The Swedish Mini Coffee Maker Chef <3 Of course she’s wearing her best cat tee whilst cooking with her coffee maker that auntie gave her. Her favorite book is this one, we read it every time we see each other. 

Since my brother and his wife are going to a wedding it’s finally all clear for me and Thilde to cook with their beautiful Mocca Master! (To my brother: NO, I’M JUST KIDDING!!! I KNOW I’M NOT ALLOWED TO COOK WITH YOUR FREKKIN MOCCA MASTER! Chill.)

Anyway… On sunday we’re going to Roskilde and have an amazing week with lots of great music, friends, weirdness and food of course. This is how you cook my favorite festival food with a coffee maker. Canned ravioli! Since I can’t bring my coffee maker to Roskilde I will probably eat this cold every day (too lazy to heat it on the camping area).

FESTIVAL FOOD – CANNED RAVIOLI

cooking with a coffee maker

Time

  • ≥ 0 sec

Ingredients

  • 1 can of ravioli

Instructions

Start your coffee maker and add the ravioli into the carafe. Heat as long as you cope and serve the food directly from the can. Turn off the coffee maker.

Yum? Yum!

Canned pea-soup is also great festival food, and then there’s Dan’s favorite – white beans. Too bad that Dan is sooo picky and always want to heat the food before eating. Yawn.

Roskilde

Serve the cold ravioli with lukewarm 19 dkk wine from Netto. And look at that little armpit vagina! Sweet.

How to cook sushi with your coffee maker

cooking with your coffee maker

Time

1,5 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 sushi making kit (with rice, rice vinegar, wasabi, soy sauce, ginger, seaweed sheets, bamboo sushi mat, sticks)
  • 200 g salmon
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 avocados
  • Salt

Instructions

Pour water into the brewer, salt in the filter thingy and the rice into the carafe. Start your coffee maker. Let the rice cook in your coffee maker for about… I don’t know exactly, that depends on what rice you are using. I overcooked my rice. Don’t do that.

Turn off your coffee maker.

Mix the rice vinegar with the rice. Let it cool. Meanwhile shred the vegetables and the salmon into long thin strips.

Take the bamboo sushi mat and place a piece of seaweed on top. Add rice, salmon, maybe some wasabi and vegetables in the middle of the seaweed and roll up the bamboo mat slowly. Remove the roll from the mat and leave it with the joining edges downwards. Don’t place in the fridge because this dries out the rice.

Use a lightly moistened sharp knife to cut the rolls into smaller pieces. Serve with ginger, more wasabi and little bowls of soy sauce.

cooking with your coffee maker

Even though the cats guarded the rice with their lives we completely overcooked it.

How to cook a cat with your coffee maker

After I posted this on the Swedish version of Coffee Machine Cuisine people got very upset. Some of the things they called me was idiot, cannibal (?) and they even said that I’m the reason for the low status that cats got in this society. I don’t get why people are so upset?! It’s no worse than eating a cow, pig or a chicken if you ask me. And hunting must be the most humane way to kill animals for food.

It all took place on a warm and sunny day when me and Dan were out at our cabin with all of our cats. Since we got so many cats I figured that I could shoot one of them so I released them into the woods and began the hunt. First I thought that the fat one, Gucci, would be an easy shot but she managed to escape surprisingly quickly. It was the sun that eventually was Iggy’s downfall. She is quite photophobic you see so she could hardly see where she was going. And BAM, easy shot for me.cooking with your coffee maker

R.I.P. my little sweetheart.

Time

  • 5 hours

Ingredients

  • 1 cat
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 pimiento
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 ½ dl coconut milk
  • 2 ½ dl cream
  • 2 tbsp meat extract
  • Juice of lime
  • Ginger
  • Butter

Instructions

Skin, fillet and chop the kitty cat. Start your coffee maker, grease the heater and place the pieces of your cat onto it. Fry it until they are cooked throughly and tender, it will take about an hour (it depends on what cut of meat you’re using and how fresh it is). Remove the meat and wipe the heater.

Chop all of the remaining ingredients that shall be chopped. Put a dollop of butter into the carafe, let it melt and then put the onion and the garlic in the carafe and fry it for about half an hour. Season with ginger. Add coconut milk, cream and meat extract and let it cook for two hours – it should get really warm. After that add the cat meat and wait a bit longer. Finally add pimiento pieces, lime juice and season generously with freshly ground black pepper and just a little salt. Turn off your coffee maker.

The best way to serve this delicious cat stew is accompanied by a glass of a tasty red wine and freshly baked bread.

How to waffle your steak to perfection

Well since it’s the International (?) Waffle Day, here’s another blog post that’s totally suitable for this day. A recipe of a minute steak that’s fried with a hair waffle iron and served with coffee maker cooked pasta. Yummie!cooking with your coffee maker

Time

  • Only about half an hour!

Ingredients

  • Minute steak
  • Fresh pasta
  • Crème fraîche preferably with some flavor (I used honey and goat cheese flavored)
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • Cucumber
  • Butter
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions

Grease the minute steak and chop the onion and the bell pepper. Add pasta and a dash of oil in the coffee maker carafe, pour water into the brewer and a pinch of salt in the filter thingy. Start your coffee maker and plug in your hair waffle iron.

Let the pasta cook for about ten to fifteen minutes. Drain and add butter, crème fraîche, bell pepper and onion into the carafe and mix this together. Season and heat it some more on the coffee maker whilst cooking your minute steak.

Place the minute steak between the two waffle iron arms. Press firmly. Proceed until the whole steak is cooked and got a nice color. Season with salt and pepper. It’s super smart to cook with your hair waffler like this because you can choose to have your steak well done on some parts and raw on some parts.

Turn of your coffee maker and unplug your hair waffler.

Serve the pasta hash with the perfectly waffled minute steak and with some sliced cucumber.cooking with your coffee maker
