National Red Velvet Cake Day – September 18

I did not know this:

Red velvet is made with cocoa powder, vinegar and buttermilk.The chemical reaction between these ingredients help give the cake a deep maroon color that is often enhanced by extra food coloring

A’Tuscan Estate Bed and Breakfast uses both vinegar and food coloring in their version of Red Velvet Cake. The inn offers beautiful accommodations and wonderful cuisine in the heart of Oregon’s Wine Country. A’Tuscan Estate is a 1928 Colonial Style Home with a decidedly European Flair a mere five blocks from downtown McMinnville with great restaurants, shops and wine tasting rooms.

Red Velvet White Chocolate Cake Truffle Recipe from A’Tuscan Estate Bed and Breakfast

Ingredients:

  • Vegetable oil for the pan
  • 2 1/1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp fine salt
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk, room temp
  • 2 large eggs, room temp
  • 2 Tbsp red food coloring
  • 1 tsp white distilled vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Bright White Candy Melts—for dipping
  • Dark Chocolate Candy Melts or Chips—for addition to cake after baked
  • Red Candy Melts or Bright White Candy Melts and Red food coloring—for decoration

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350◦F. Lightly oil and flour a 9 x 13 pan.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. In another large bowl, whisk together the oil buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar and vanilla.
  3. Using a stand mixer, mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined and a smooth batter is formed.
  4. Pour better into cake pan. Place in oven. Bake, rotating pans halfway through the cooking, until the cake pulls away from the side of the pan and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean—about 30 minutes.
  5. Remove cake for oven and run a knife around the edge to loosen from sides. Invert the cake on a plate or sheet pan and then onto a cooling rack. Let cool completely.
  6. Once cooled, finely crumble cake in large bowl.
  7. Melt 1 cup Dark Chocolate Candy Melts/chips in microwave for 50-55 seconds (or as directed on the package) and stir until completely melted. If additional melting is needed, do so at 10 second intervals until fulling melted. Mix melted dark chocolate into cake crumbs.  I use my hands with disposable kitchen gloves.
  8. Chill for 30 minutes.
  9. Line sheet pan with foil. Using small melon ball scoop, scoop onto sheet pan.
  10. Chill for 30 minutes. Form into balls rounding the edges.
  11. Chill for 30 minutes.
  12. Melt White Candy Melts in microwave for 50-55 seconds (or as directed on the package) and stir until completely melted. If additional melting is needed, do so at 10 second intervals until fulling melted.  If too thick, add a small amount of Vegetable oil.
  13. Dip using fork or two prong dipping tool allowing extra chocolate to drip before placing on foil lined cookie sheet. This helps to avoid excessive pooling of chocolate. Chill until white chocolate is hard. Approximately 20-30 minutes.
  14. Melt 1/3 cup of red candy melts. Using a clean fork, drizzle red chocolate over the white chocolate covered cake truffles and allow to harden for serving
Note: You can also use store bought cake mix.

National Banana Split Day

National Banana Split Day August 25

National Banana Split Day is August 25. And why not Banana Split for breakfast? How about this healthy, delicious and nutritious variation from the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast? Oatmeal Breakfast Banana Split is a fun breakfast recipe that will kickstart your day with the energy you’ll need to power through exploring Oregon.

You’ll need about one cup of prepared oatmeal for each ‘split’.  Use your favorite oatmeal recipe making sure it’s on the thicker side.  You’ll be using a cookie or ice cream scoop to scoop into banana

  • Slice the banana lengthwise and lay in your bowl
  • Drop two or three scoops of oatmeal onto banana
  • Add fresh fruit.  Try peaches, pears , apples, and berries
  • Top with a tablespoon or two of Greek Yogurt
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips, hemp hearts and chia seeds
  • Drizzle with maple syrup or any fruit syrup
  • Don’t forget the Cherry on Top

The great thing about this meal is you can top this banana split oatmeal with whatever you like.  In the Hood River Valley we have an abundance of berries, cherries, stone fruit, apples and pears.  Try some fall flavors with pumpkin puree and seeds. Or go tropical with mangos, pineapple and oranges.  The options are virtually endless. You can use fresh fruit, frozen fruit, puree fruit.

National Waffle Day

National Waffle Day with Hazelnut Waffles

The temperate climates and volcanic soils of Oregon’s Willamette Valley combine to create 99 percent of the U.S. hazelnut crop. Oregon hazelnuts are recognized for their large size and distinctive flavor and about 50% of the crop is exported annually. That leaves plenty for the innkeepers of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild to share with guests in unique and delicious ways.

You’re sure to enjoy these Hazelnut Waffles

1 c. spelt flour
⅓ c. oat flour
½ c. hazelnuts, toasted and finely ground
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. soda
¼ c. sugar
2 eggs
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ¼ – 1 ½ c. buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients, then add remaining ingredients, starting with
1 ½ c. buttermilk, and mix well. If too thick, add remaining buttermilk.

Bake in hot waffle iron. Serve with ground hazelnuts and powdered sugar on top. Serve with a warm syrup or fruit topping. Or both!  I found this Hazelnut Syrup recipe on oregonhazelnuts.org:

Hazelnut Syrup
½ cup chopped Oregon hazelnuts
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
¾ cup maple syrup
In saucepan, sauté hazelnuts in butter until lightly browned. Add syrup and heat through. Yield: about 1 ¼ cups

National Waffle Day on August 24th commemorates the anniversary of the first waffle iron patent issued. Celebrate by savoring your favorite kind of waffle!

Recipes Oregon Bed and Breakfast

Southwest Eggs Benedict from Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast

Eggs Benedict is an American brunch or breakfast dish that consists of two halves of an English muffin each of which is topped with Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and hollandaise sauce. Many variations on the basic recipe are served and this one from Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast is a bit out of the box and oh so delicious.

The original recipe was from Maryana Vollstedt, The Big Book of Breakfast with just a wee bit of change from the innkeeper at Chehalem Ridge.

Southwest Eggs Benedict
Servings: 6

8 each saltine cracker, broken up
2 each garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
ground pepper to taste
2 cans black beans, canned, rinsed
6 each green onions, chopped
2 sprigs cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

In food processor, grind crackers well. Add garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper and blend well. Add one can of beans and blend well. Then add the second can, the green onions and cilantro and blend until just incorporated. Add water, one teaspoon at a time, until you reach consistency to hold together without being too sticky. Form into 12, 3 inch round, ½ inch high patties. Fry patties over medium high heat in vegetable oil, about 5 minutes per side.

To serve, arrange 2 patties per plate, spread a fan of avocado on each patty, place a poached egg on the avocado and top with the grated cheese. Garnish with tomato salsa or corn relish cilantro sprigs

National Pi Day

National Pi Day – for the love of Pie

What do mathematicians and pie fans have in common? A love for March 14, National Pi Day.

For math lovers, it’s a chance to celebrate Pi, one of the most important numbers ever. For those who don’t enjoy math, you get pie. Cherry pie. Apple pie. Pizza pie. All the pies. Who knew math could be so yummy?

Whether you calculate it or eat it, Pi, and pie, bring joy to many.

Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast serves a Crustless Apple Pie with vanilla yogurt, because, you know, breakfast. But if you choose to put some other vanilla dairy product on it, maybe something from the freezer, you won’t be judged.

Although this is not a pie, the Cherry Tart is a favorite at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast in the Hood River Valley, where some of the sweetest Oregon cherries are grown.

How about Apple Pie Cookies? The innkeeper at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast put a little spin on the classic apple pie and the results were amazing.

And then there’s the classic Asparagus Quiche from The Carlton Inn Bed and Breakfast or Cheese Tart from the Old Parkdale Inn. All with a perfect circumference should the math lovers at the breakfast table want to delve into Pi.

Blueberry Croissant French Toast

Blueberry Croissant French Toast served at the Old Parkdale Inn B&B, in the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of this Mt. Hood B&B.

National Croissant Day is January 30th but this buttery dish is served anytime at the Old Parkdale Inn

Blueberry Croissant French ToastThis Blueberry Croissant French Toast is a perfect breakfast entrée for both spring and summer, and super pretty when topped with fresh Oregon berries.

Let the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of the comfortable Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast be your lodging alternative to a hotel or motel in the Hood River Valley. And maybe if you ask ahead they’ll treat you to this decadent Blueberry Croissant French Toast.


Blueberry Croissant French Toast

6-7 Large Croissants, torn into pieces
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 1/2 Cup Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
12 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Butter, melted
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Pecans

Thoroughly grease a 9×13 baking dish with butter or non stick spray. Tear up croissants and place half in bottom of baking dish. Cut up cream cheese into small pieces and place them on top of croissants. Put half the blueberries on top of cream cheese. Layer other half of torn croissants on top, then the rest of blueberries. Beat eggs, milk, maple syrup and cinnamon together in a bowl. Pour egg mixture over croissant mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, scatter pecans over french toast. Melt butter & add brown sugar to it to make a glaze like mixture. Drizzle mixture over french toast. Bake in 350 degree oven for 50- 60 minutes. Watch carefully last 10 minutes to make sure pecans don’t burn. If getting too dark, put some foil lightly over french toast to stop browning. Makes 8 generous portions.

Substitute any juicy berry such at strawberries or the Oregon Marionberry. Or maybe Peaches? Peaches and Cream sounds pretty good, too.
