***updated to edit recipe: it should only bake for 35 min*** I used my mom’s original recipe because it was in my computer, when I went to make this on Thanksgiving I realized it should only be 35 min, by the recipe I actually use to make it. Maybe this is a difference in ovens?
In lots of conversations lately I’ve been hearing and asked about our family’s holiday traditions. So, I’ve decided to talk about it a little here – and link up to Thanksgiving Recipes over at Kelly’s, livelaughrowe.
One of our long-standing holiday traditions is to eat Swedish Kringle for breakfast on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. This is a recipe coming from my dad’s mom. I took over making it when I was young because my mom hated trying to pat the first layer down all the way. One year, I used a 9×13 pan – it went in so much easier, my mom never looked back. She decided the recipe was for a 9×13. I go back and forth, depending on my mood in the morning. :-) I usually still go with the larger pan, a jelly roll stone, because I like it thinner and I spend the time patting down the mix in prayer. Squishing what bugs me, while I give it up to the One who can actually do something about it :-).
Going gluten free wasn’t that painful for me because I didn’t lose much – I never really like food, it made me sick. However, I love Swedish Kringle, it is something I look forward to twice a year – every year. I was able to successfully substitute straight brown rice flour, I didn’t like it as much though (it’s a little gritty). It is better with a mix of flours/starches to make a gluten free flour. I don’t really use Guar Gum or Xanthan Gum.
— > Swedish Kringle 4×6 <– I succeeded at uploading a PDF so you can just print it off!!!!
Can I just say – I’m totally stoked I actually got a PDF so you can just print.
Okay – so I wasn’t really done blogging today, but we just lost power – long enough to shut everything down and I lost what I was writing. I am up at the moment, but the wind is still howling. Supposedly the storm is just starting so, I’m going to post and be done for the night. This is fun to be back to writing again. :-) See you soon.
