Pumpkin Pie Kor’kron Krumkake ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on



Garrosh Hellscream over at The Command Board requested this during a twitter conversation. Apparently I do requests now. 




Don’t get used to it, Warchief!


You will need:



This recipe is quite flexible. 
It was originally an apple coffee cake but I twisted it around to work with pumpkin pie.  
Did you alter your favorite recipe?


1/2 c shortening
1 c white sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c flour
1/2 c quick oats 
(If you don’t have oats, replace the 1/2c oats with flour.)
1 tbs baking powder 
(I use 1 tsp baking soda & 1/2 tsp lemon juice. I think it raises better.)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c milk
1 c pumpkin puree
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon

Topping:
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon






In a large bowl, cream shortening and 1 cup sugar until light. 






Beat in egg and vanilla until fluffy.





Add pumpkin, oats and spices.




Add flour, baking powder and salt to the creamed mixture.




 Add milk slowly.





Spread the batter into a greased baking pan.
Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon on top.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30-45 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean and the edges are brown.




Yum!

Broiled Dragon Feast

Posted on Updated on

Broiled dragon has to be by far my favorite meal. I took the best looking 10 lb bone in slab of dragon meat this side of Kalimdor. (smoked ham) 
I used a brown sugar glaze.
1c brown sugar
2 tsp mustard
2 tbs apple cider
2 tbs water
2 tbs flour
1/2 tsp cloves
Mix together, it will be thick like a paste. Score dragon with a sharp knife & smear glaze all over scored area.

I did use a oven bag to seal in the flavors and juices. They also cut down cooking time by at least 30 minutes.

 Cook at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours (15 minutes per pound) You’ll know when it is done, the scored are will split wider. Spoon the glaze from the bottom of the pan over the top. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.

Serves well with Runn Tum Tubers, Crystalsong Carrots, Bread of the Dead and Ice Cold Milk. For a Warcraft feast your guildies will love.

Posted on Updated on

TGF: Hello and welcome to The Gamer’s Fridge interview of the week, Garrosh Hellscream, The leader of the Orcs. Garrosh, thank you for seeing me today. 
Garrosh: Humph, On with it.
TGF: Garrosh, Rumor has it Thrall is coming back to reclaim his place as Warchief. Do you know what your plans will be if that happens?
Garrosh: If Thrall comes back to reclaim his seat as Warchief I would…. welcome him.
TGF: I was south of Ogrimmar a few weeks ago talking to Vol’jin about his Darkspear Jerk Chicken recipe. He is a very interesting…
Garrosh: Interesting! Bah, A troll army can’t even kill one sea witch.
TGF: Moving along, I am here to ask you Garrosh, leader of the Horde. What is your favorite recipe?
Garrosh: The still beating HEART OF A TROGG!

TGF: Well, I don’t know how I am going to serve that. It won’t take much cooking time…”
Garrosh throws his arm around my shoulder and laughs, nonchalantly shoving a scrap of paper into my pocket.
Garrosh: I love a good lemon square so sweet and tangy.
He says under his breath.
TGF: Lemon squares, I would never have guessed.
A nearby guard chuckles.
Garrosh: LEMON SQUARES…I said the still beating HEART OF A TROGG!
Garrosh bellows as he pushes me out of the throne room.

Here it is folks. Garrosh’s Lemon Squares
…I mean, the still beating heart of a trogg or whatever.
You will need:
The crust:
2 cups sifted flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter, melted
The Filling:
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch pan.
The Crust:
In a medium bowl, stir together 2 cups flour and confectioners’ sugar. Blend in the melted butter.
Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until edges are golden.
The Filling:
In a large bowl, beat eggs until light. Combine the sugar, baking powder and 1/4 cup of flour.
Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Finally, stir in the lemon juice.
Pour over the prepared crust and return to the oven.
Bake for an additional 30 minutes or until bars are set. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
I set these to cool overnight and when I woke up the next morning they were gone.
However, there was a two handed axe stuck in my kitchen table.
Peculiar.

Fire Festival Brew

Posted on Updated on

I have to give this one to the dwarves. Only they would light they drink on fire first. The one with the smoking beard buys a round. I bet the conversation when something like:


Drunk Dwarf: Oh ye, I betcha ya can’t chug it. 
Drunker Dwarf: Oh you say do ya. 
Drunk Dwarf: Double o’nothin you cant drink that with fire.
Drunker Dwarf: Mable, hand me my flint. 


Thus the birth of the Fire Festival Brew!


You will need:

3/4 shot amaretto liqueur
1/4 shot 151 proof Rum
1/2 glass beer (your choice)


Yes, that is a Borg shot glass. 


Fill the shot glass about 3/4 full with amaretto and top it off with just a splash of Rum 151 proof rum to make it burn. Put the shot glass in another glass and fill the new glass with beer (right up to the level of the shot glass).



Light the amaretto/151 and let it burn a while. Blow it out and slam it. (Means drink it fast) When you tip it the amaretto will combine with the beer making it taste just like Dr. Pepper.
You can make out the flame. I did take a shot with the lights dim but you can’t see the flame very well.
