Title: A Norwegian Coffee Cake "Kringlas"
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Breakfast, Ethnic, Desserts, Cakes

Ingredients:

1/2 c MARGARINE.
1 c SUGAR.
1 ts VANILLA.
1 EGG.
1 c BUTTERMILK.
1 ts SODA.
3 c FLOUR.
2 1/2 ts BAKING POWDER.
1 ts SALT.


Try mixing Vanilla and egg beat until mixed. Add the Buttermilk and the
Soda; (I have used 7up) and sift the dry ingredients into this. add the
rest of the ingredients, mix well. Put the container into the refrigerator
chill over night. Take out and roll small pieces of the dough into long
strips, then form them into a figure eight,(like a pretzel) put them back
into the Refrigerator for about an hour, when they have raised to
approximately what looks to be the right hight. Bake in a 450 deg
pre-heated oven for approximately 6 to 8 minutes, ( May vary with the
weather so keep an eye on them).But they should be a light brown before you
remove them. Refrigeration is one of the keys of "KRINGLA" making. They
must be refrigerated in order for them to get the flavor, you could bake
them without refrigeration but you lose a lot of the flavor. You can also
use. A: OATMEAL. B: RAISINS. C: WHOLE WHEAT. You can fill them with your
favorite filling, Cream Cheese, Jelly, ETC. you don't need eggs or yeast.
They are not too sweet, and definitely not Boring like a bagel, (Sorry
Bagel lovers, VBG). It is a coffee Bread not like Muffins, which are too
sweet, and also do not have too many calories. This recipe came from a
fella from the town of LOS OSOS CA He is a out of work Carpenter who
started baking and selling these wonderful Rolls, He said that this is an
original recipe that he got from his grandmother, (Yea for the Grandmas).
Ive tried Nuts, and love the cream Cheese one, You could even use Custard
Filling, Ive also used Different flavored oils like Pure orange oil,
Butterscotch, several Berries types. and they turned out just great.
