Chanukah Donuts with Heering Liqueur

by Jodi

Chanukah is here! That means so are Chanukah parties. Now we could make our parties like all the others, but I always like to make sure that my parties give an added flavor of the festival that we are celebrating. So… along with Chanukah comes the idea of eating oily foods, without feeling guilty. So I have the perfect recipe for you to make sure that your Chanukah party (even if it’s just you and your hubby) will be a big hit.

To get the fun flowing and make sure everyone is relaxed, I like to offer a little bit of liquid incentive, and to make it special for Chanukah, here’s how to make some Boozy Donuts made with Heering Liqueur!

 

What you need:

6 sugar-covered donuts

1/2 cup of sugar

3 oz either coffee or cherry Heering Liqueur

 

1. Heat the donuts in the oven at 250 degrees for 5 minutes.

2. On a plate ad the sugar, brush the top of the warm donuts with water and drip in the sugar.

3. Insert and fill the liqueur in multiple spots of the bottom of the donuts with a small turkey baster/or cake decorating tool about 1/2 oz per donut

6. With a creme brulee torch, burn the sugar top of the donuts to a hard sugar topping. If you dont have a creme brulee torch, you can simply put in the oven on broil for a few minutes till the sugar caramelizes.

 

Serve right away while warm, a good tip is to let the guests watch while you are putting the finishing touches, their mouths will be watering and you will look like a pro in the kitchen!

 

Just to make it easier for you, here are all the places in the New York Metro area that that carry the mini bottles of Cherry Heering and Coffee Heering Liqueur. Sorry but there aren’t any online retailers available.

Don’t forget to send me pictures so I can see how your donuts turn out and the rest of MetroImma can too!

Coffee Cocktails with a Heering Twist for Chanukah or Anytime!

Cherry Herring, though a specialty liqueur made in Denmark, has become an iconic Jewish drink found at synagogue kiddushes everywhere across all denominations.  With the 2010 launch of Cherry Heering’s “little sister” Coffee Heering, the brand took a turn in a more modern and culinarily creative direction.  If you’re looking to try something new for your dairy Chanukah feasts, these twists on Irish Coffee will certainly offer your crowd a dessert treat that will pair beautifully with the holiday’s traditional fried desserts.

Heering Coffee Egg Cream

2 Tbsp Chocolate Syrup
2 oz Heering Coffee Liqueur
3/4 cup cold milk
3/4 cup cold seltzer

In a 12-ounce glass, stir together chocolate syrup, Heering coffee liqueur, and milk. Top with seltzer and stir. Serve immediately with straw.

Heering Coffee Latte
                
1.5 oz Coffee Heering Liqueur
6-8 oz steamed milk, may use skim
Chocolate shavings, for garnish
Pour Coffee Heering into a 6-8 ox mug or glass and add Steamed Milk
Garnish with chocolate shavings
In case you want to run out and get your own bottle of Heering for your Chanukah entertaining, here is a link to a list of places in the New York Metro Area in which you can buy a bottle.

Just In Time For Hanukkah: A New Spin On Recipes From Cherry Heering Liqueur

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah is upon us and the first night is this Saturday night, December 8th.  When I think of Hanukkah, I think about the opportunity to get together with friends and family. In today’s world of endless online resources, Hanukkah party planningrecipescrafts, and gifts are trending on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.

I have very fond memories of the latkes my mother made.  I can still smell the onion and freshly peeled potato coming from her suburban kitchen. The oil would “pop” as each spoonful of the potato latke mixture was dropped into the pan. I remember counting the minutes until I could eat one (I always had several) topped with sour cream and apple sauce. Yes, the miracle of the oil was definitely symbolized in those latkes.

Now that I have my own home and planning my own Hanukkah party, I really wanted to focus on recipes to help wash down the latkes. What better desserts and beverages to wash down the latkes a dessert made with Cherry Heering Liqueur.

Following the potato latkes, I plan on serving this recipe for “Boozy” Donuts with Creme Brulee topping! I still remember when I was pregnant with my daughter and craving Hanukkah donuts so badly that I made my husband go wait in line at a bakery so he could get first batch out of the oven. These donuts, also known as sufganiot, are filled with custard, chocolate, and/or caramel. While my favorite was always the custard filling, I have a new found appreciation for “Boozy” donuts. This is the batch that the kids shouldn’t take from, just an FYI!

Boozy Donuts with Crème Brulee Topping

6 sugar-covered donuts 1/2 cup of sugar  3 oz. either coffee or cherry Heering Liqueur

Directions

Heat the donuts in the oven at 250 degrees for 5 minutes.

On a plate add the sugar, brush the top of the warm donuts with water and drip in the sugar.

Insert and fill the liqueur in multiple spots of the bottom of the donuts with a small turkey baster/or cake decorating tool about 1/2 oz. per donut

With a crème brulee torch, burn the sugar top of the donuts to a hard sugar topping. If you don’t have a creme brulee torch, you can simply put in the oven on broil for a few minutes till the sugar caramelizes.

Serve right away while warm!

Nothing goes better with these delicious “boozy” donuts than a Coffee Latte. While you are watching the candles burn low, why not sip on a Coffee Heering Liqueur Latte.

Coffee Latte

1 ½ oz. Coffee Heering Liqueur Steamed Milk (may use skim)

Directions

Pour Coffee Heering into a mug add Steamed Milk Garnish with chocolate shavings

If you prefer the Cherry Heering Liqueur, try this lovely recipe for Cheery Hot Chocolate:

Cherry Hot Chocolate

1 ½ oz. Cherry Heering Hot Chocolate Topping suggestions: Marshmallows’ & hot chili flakes

This next drink reminds me of my dad. He always ordered an Egg Cream (while I made a face of disgust) when we were at his favorite deli. I now think that I could appreciate this drink, especially this version:

Heering Coffee Egg Cream

2 tablespoons chocolate syrup 1 shot/2oz Heering Coffee Liqueur 3/4 cup cold milk 3/4 cup coldseltzer water

Directions

In a 12-ounce glass, stir together chocolate syrup, Heering coffee liqueur, and milk. Top with seltzer and stir. Serve immediately with straw.

What is your favorite way to serve Cherry Heering Liqueur or Heering Coffee Liqueur? Any way you choose, you should drink responsibly!

The Queen elsker Cherry Heering

Når forlaget Taschen lager bok om Dronning Elisabeth, hentes designere fra øverste hylle

Vivienne Westwood, som egenhendig skapte punk og new wave på 1970-tallet, er øverst i teten blant britiske designere. På 1980-tallet introduserte hun silhuetten og sin nye romantiske stil, en stil som fremdeles står sterkt i dag. Vivienne Westwood er et ikon. Fotograf Harry Benson har fotografert Eisenhower og alle presidentene etter ham, og sto ved siden av Robert Kennedy da han ble myrdet. Han har fotografert The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor og nå: Her Majesty The Queen. Harry Benson er utnenvt Commander of the British Empire.

Vi i Gastronomade elsker Cherry Heering, og smilte likørsøtt da vi lærte at The Queen deler denne gleden. Hva hun ellers elsker, kan oppleves i denne ultimate coffee table boken, utgitt av forlaget som nærmest oppfant coffee table-bøker, Taschen. Boken koster jo en liten formue, men ser ufattelig lekker ut. Sjekk ut www.taschen.com og «bla» i boken.

Cherry Heering and Chanuka on BlogoWogo.com

As I’ve written before, Cherry Heering has long been a part of my memories and family traditions. Thus, as we stand almost on the threshold of Chanukah, when I saw an ad for Peter Heering‘s products, I thought it would be a great idea to once again, bring Cherry Heering to a family get together.

Always on the lookout for new recipes I may come across, I was pleased that Peter Heering‘s distributors sent me some intriguing ideas.

I especially liked the Coffee Latte; it’s easy to make and absolutely delicious!

1 ½ oz Coffee Heering liquor

Steamed Milk, may use skim

Pour Coffee Heering into a mug add Steamed Milk

Garnish with chocolate shavings

I tried it last eve and it certainly hit the spot. But… I can’t wait to try the “Boozy” Donuts with Creme Brulee Topping:

Donuts are the new cupcakes and a big trend for the season, an easy way to upgrade regular old store bought donuts and take it from an afternoon snack to a fancy dessert

Ingredients

    • 6 sugar-covered donuts
    • 1/2 cup of sugar

The younger grand kids will just have to make do with the store bought donuts, that is… if the “Boozy” ones last long enough for their families to arrive…

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
