I decided to prepare an egg liquor (a kind of egg nog) in my Thermomix,
a nice but quite expensive kitchen gadget which allows you to mix and
cook at the same time. Some years ago I bought the old model in an
auction, which saved me a lot of money 🙂
This is all you need: Egg yolks, sugar, vanilla sugar, evaporated
milk, Schnaps and 10 minutes of time. So here’s the quick recipe:
6 egg yolks
250 g sugar
1 pk vanilla sugar
170 g evaporated milk (10% fat)
250 ml Doppelkorn Schnaps (38 percent alcohol)
Put egg yolks, sugar and vanilla sugar in the bowl of the Thermomix
and mix for 10 minutes at 80°C on speed 1. After 4 minutes slowly add
evaporated milk and alcohol. That’s it!
Pour into a decorative glass bottle and cap.
Self made egg liquor makes a nice present.
You can use the liquor for the following muffins:
Egg Liquor Muffins with Chocolate
125 g soft butter
125 g sugar
125 g flour
1/2 pk baking powder
3 tb flaked chocolate
75 g semi-sweet coating chocolate
25 g white coating chocolate
Place the paper muffin forms in the muffin pan. Preheat oven to 200°C.
With an handheld mixer beat the butter until foamy. Beat the eggs
and the sugar until well combined. Mix butter and egg mixture. Sieve
flour and baking powder, add the flour to the egg-mixture
carefully folding into the dough, add the egg liquor and the
flaked chocolate gently but thoroughly folding it into the batter.
Fill the forms 2/3 full with the muffin batter. Place the pan in the
middle of the oven and bake the muffins for about 15-20
minutes. Let cool on a rack.
Melt the chocolates separately in the microwave oven.
Glaze the muffins with the dark chocolate, let dry. Fill the white chocolate in a small paper piping bag and pipe some delicate lines across the top of the muffins. Enjoy!
