Danish Coffee Ring!


So here's my finished Danish Coffee Ring, as mentioned in today's earlier post. I made this sucker entirely on my own, and it turned out fine! That's especially remarkable considering I hadn't made it in 30 years or so. Dave has definitely reawakened my interest in cooking!

It's basically a leavened sweet pastry with raisins, almonds and cinnamon, and a sweet vanilla glaze. It's rolled and then formed into a circle on the baking sheet.

(I never realized I had such a penchant for wheel-shaped desserts.)

I'm impressed! Are you gaining weight now that you're cooking up a storm (with all that butter!)?
