Glazed Cranberry Bundt Cake

So Yummy

Complexity: Easy

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: about 2 hours

Servings: about 10

Ingredients:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of cranberry sauce (homemade or store-bought), divided
  • ½ cup of Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk
  • Zest of 1 small orange

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a bundt pan with a generous amount of non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine water, Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise, ½ cup of cranberry sauce, and an egg. Blend with an electric mixer until well combined.
  3. Add the cake mix to the bowl and mix until the cake batter is smooth with no large lumps of dry mix left.
  4. Pour cake batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for about 55 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
  5. Remove cake from the oven and allow to cool for about 45 minutes before turning it out from the pan.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining cranberry sauce, powdered sugar, orange zest, and 2 tablespoons of milk until very smooth.
  7. The mixture should be pourable but not too thin. If the mixture is too thin, add ½ cup additional powdered sugar at a time until it reaches the right consistency. If the mixture is too thick, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until it reaches the right consistency.
  8. Once the cake is completely cooled, pour the cranberry glaze all over the top of the cake.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Thanksgiving Egg Rolls

So Yummy

Complexity: Medium

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: about 1 hour 30 minutes

Servings: about 10

Ingredients:

  • 1 package prepared egg roll wrappers
  • 48 oz neutral frying oil, such as canola or vegetable oil
  • 4 oz leftover turkey, chopped
  • 1 cup leftover green bean casserole, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups leftover stuffing, chopped
  • ¾ cup Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce (homemade or store-bought)

Preparation:

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat, until an instant-read thermometer reaches 350°F.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add the chopped turkey, green bean casserole, and stuffing and stir until well combined.
  3. Working one at a time, lay 1 egg roll wrapper in a diamond shape onto a clean work surface. Lightly wet all the edges with some water.
  4. Spoon a heaping spoonful of the filling slightly lower than the center. Squeeze about 2 teaspoons of Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise in on top of the filling.
  5. Pull the bottom corner of the wrapper up over the filling and tuck the filling in slightly to remove any big air pockets.
  6. Bring the left corner of the wrapper over the center of the filling, creasing where the filling begins like you are wrapping a present. Repeat with the right corner.
  7. Carefully roll the bottom of the filling up towards the top corner, tucking in any excess wrapper along the sides, until the top corner is sealed over the roll. Set aside and continue making more egg rolls until you use up all of your filling or wrappers.
  8. Once all of your egg rolls are prepared, carefully lower 4 egg rolls into the hot oil and fry, rotating occasionally, for about 8-10 minutes, until evenly golden brown. Remove the egg rolls from the oil and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  9. Repeat, working in batches, until you have fried remaining egg rolls.
  10. In a small bowl, combine ½ cup Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise with cranberry sauce.
  11. Serve hot egg rolls with cranberry mayo dipping sauce.

Loaded Paleo / Keto Biscuits

So Yummy

Complexity: Easy

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: about 1 hour

Servings: 6-8

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅔ cup Sir Kensington’s Avocado Mayonnaise, plus more for serving
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6-8 leftover bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add all ingredients and pulse until a dough comes together, with some defined pieces of Brussels sprouts and bacon in the mixture. The biscuit dough should resemble a moist cookie dough. If you notice the mixture is too dry to hold together, add about 2 tablespoons of additional Sir Kensington’s Avocado Mayonnaise and stir by hand to combine.
  3. Spoon a heaping spoonful of the biscuit dough into mounds on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 35-40 minutes, until completely baked and nicely golden brown on top.
  4. Allow the biscuits to cool, then enjoy with some slices of leftover turkey and an extra swipe of Sir Kensington’s Avocado Mayonaise or a smear of your favorite keto/paleo butter.
