Picture of Foods of Skyrim: Boiled Creme Treat

Another recipe from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Like the honey nut treat, this food does not have an in-game recipe, so I just implemented some nordic baking techniques to make this recipe.

Pastry Base

2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
4 cups plus 1/3 cup flour
1-1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 packet active dry yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom


Boiled Creme
3 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 very large egg yolks
1 cup milk
A pinch of salt

Glaze

1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners' sugar

round dough cutter
 

Step 1: Butter and Dough Prep

Cream the softened butter and 1/3 cup of flour in a small bowl. Spread onto a large sheet of wax paper and press another sheet on top of the butter. Place this butter sheet into the fridge and allow to chill.

Mix the dry yeast and 2 cups of the flour in a large bowl.

Heat the milk, sugar and salt on low until warm, about 110-115 degrees F.

Pour the warm milk mixture into the flour mix along with the eggs, almond extract and cardamom and mix well by hand or using the dough hook attachment of a mixer.

Slowly add in the remaining two cups of flour, allowing the dough to come together of the dough hook (or really wearing out your arms!).

Cover the bowl with a moistened tea towel and allow to rise in a warm area until the dough has doubled in size.

So.. there was an effort! I thought I did everything right, except substituting the glaze for a cinnamon and brown sugar caramel (for lack of powdered sugar.) It came out more like a boiled creme sweet roll baby. Not what I was anticipating, but still very tasty.

What do you do with your leftover egg whites? Possible add. Made a sweet merengue top over, return to oven a few, serve warm. Go light on the glaze tho.

I usually use my leftover whites in a omelette, if you wanted to forgo glaze (the dough isn't super sweet so I wouldn't recommend it) you could use the white for an egg wash with a little bit of water.

Ok. Good to know

That sounds delicious! Nice job :D
