It’s been a while since we have hosted any dinners at 1136 – sadly, our schedules have brought us to the decision to leave the loft and start fresh once things settle down. A special thank you goes to all that supported us, our food and our vision. Please continue to check the blog for upcoming news, commentaries, recipes and photos of the latest creations from Jon and his chef friends.
Lots of love and Portuguese Dreams!
Portuguese Dreams Recipe
6 extra large eggs
2 cups flour
1 cups milk
3 tbsp pumpkin puree mixed with 3 tbsp water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 stick butter or margarine
Sugar and Cinnamon for topping
In a large heavy pan, place the milk, butter and salt over medium heat and bring to just before boiling point. Take off heat and stir in the flour, salt and pumpkin water. Stir lightly with a wooden spoon until the flour becomes dough turning into a ball and separating from the sides of the pan. Place into a medium bowl and beat in one egg at a time making a smooth batter.
Fry the doughnuts in vegetable oil until golden brown keeping the heat at a steady temperature. Drain on a new clean brown paper bag or paper towels. While still hot place the dreams in a paper bag of sugar and cinnamon and shake. Enjoy!
