Wake and Bake: Easy Strawberry Danish

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

This recipe is both easy, as in a baking novice could put it together, and easy, meaning it's a shortcut way of making a traditional danish. And lastly, it's easy meaning you can put an iced strawberry cream cheese danish on the table in less than an hour. More

American Classics: Kringle

Sweets Alexandra Penfold 12 comments

When Danish immigrants settled in Racine, Wisconsin in the late 1800s, they brought with them a tender, buttery, fruit or nut-filled pastry known as the kringle. While kringle is the Danish word for pretzel, these days kringles are typically formed in a large ring or rectangle. Ask a Wisconsinite about kringle and they'll likely have a story or two. When I appealed to my Wisconsin pals to school me in the ways of the kringle, one friend replied with clear directions: "Drive to Racine. Buy Kringle. Scarf down Kringle in car quickly, so as to avoid sharing." More

Scandinavian Street Food: Danish Æbleskiver For Christmas

Scandinavian Street Food Kalle Bergman 13 comments

Æbleskiver, which is Danish for "apple slices," are a classic Danish dessert primarily served during Christmas that resemble round pancake balls with a doughnut-like texture. The name is completely misleading though—the recipe hasn't contained apples for over a century. Served warm with icing sugar and jam, they're delicious and deservedly one of the country's most famous desserts. More

Crispy Pork Cracklings

Making crispy pork cracklings yourself actually isn't that difficult. You just need some pork rind cut into 1/5-inch slices, some salt, a hot oven, and your heart doctor on speed dial. More

Scandinavian Street Food: Danish Crispy Pork Cracklings

Scandinavian Street Food Kalle Bergman 6 comments

The look has a vague resemblance to pig tails. Not the ones attached to heads of little girls, but the ones attached to actual pigs. And the flavor is all oink. But it's the texture that's the star of the show when it comes to Danish crispy pork cracklings: partly firm, cracking under the pressure of your teeth, and partly buttery with a more gentle crunch.

Hot Dog of the Week: Danish Hot Dog

Hot Dog of the Week Hawk Krall 8 comments

"The signature of the Danish Hot Dog is the mountain of crispy fried onions—pretty much exactly like the canned French fried onions." [Original artwork: Hawk Krall] Past Weeks' Dogs 24th & Passyunk TruckTexas TommyPhilly Dirty Water DogChicago Dog This week marks the first Hot Dog of the Week outside of North America. Unique hot dog styles are evolving on every corner of the planet. Brazil alone has three or four unique styles. Japan probably invented four new hot dogs while I wrote this article. European hot dog variations are extra fascinating because the dogs themselves are closer to the original German wieners, yet many of the serving styles and toppings are influenced by American hot dog variations. I was thrilled... More

Gadgets: The Aebelskiver Pan

Gadgets Nikki Goldstein 30 comments

Editor's Note: Nikki Goldstein, longtime friend of Serious Eats and our newest contributor, will be checking in with a different kitchen gadget every week. Please welcome Nikki! Few would dare question the power of pancakes as comfort food--what's better than waking up to the smell of warm batter puffing up into cakey vehicles for syrup and jam? If you thought this was the pinnacle of Sunday brunch, meet the aebelskiver. It's a warm, doughy concoction that essentially crosses a pancake with a jelly doughnut. They're relentlessly addicting. While many trek to the few eateries that make these fresh (including Aunt Else's in the Twin Cities area, Shopsin's in New York City, and almost any place in Solvang, California), aebelskivers are...
