13 finest Molly Yeh recipes from DIY Funfetti Cake to Scallion Pancake Challah
If food is your thing, then most likely Molly Yeh’s recipes are yours. The voice behind the blog My Name is Yeh and the cookbooks Molly on the Range and Short Stack Yogurt, as well as the host of Food Networks Girl Meets Farm, Molly’s colorful – and often colorful – recipes that appeal to avid fans from around the world. Not to brag about, but I’ve been cooking on her blog for years before the girl even got to know the farm.
Thankfully, Yeh has been friends with Food52 for a while too, so we’ve reviewed some of their most creative recipes, including a gingerbread farmhouse (wow!). For 13 sprinkled, tahini-coated, pastel-frozen, crunchy crunchy Molly Yeh recipes – don’t worry, they’re all different foods! – continue reading.
Ingenious recipes – approved
In my humble opinion, there is nothing more ingenious than fried potatoes dipped in mayo. Oh, wait, yes, there is: fried potatoes, dipped in mayo, mixed with peppers and vinegar.
It’s a pound cake! It’s a scone! It’s both – and neither. Thanks to chocolate and marzipan, nutty-sweet, it asks to be sliced, grilled on both sides in salted butter and eaten with a large drop of Greek yogurt.
She always has candy up her sleeve
This cake is my favorite recipe for a friend or family member’s birthday. It tastes like the box version, but it’s just a little better. And isn’t that all we want in this world?
As someone who’s got their fair share of shitty chocolate disguised as Hanukkah gifts, “Gelt” kills me. But then I discovered this cookie and changed my melody. Because hazelnuts and chocolate are a perfect combination and I don’t have to use the bad chocolate to make a gel biscuit.
A black and white biscuit meets a lofthouse biscuit in this pink frosted cake pastry. The yogurt in the glaze is the real star and would also be welcome on any simple cake of mine.
You probably already have everything you need to make these salty shortbread biscuits even if you run out of flour. It’s just butter, sugar, and pretzels – ground into flour, thank you very much.
For a gingerbread house that you might actually eat, look no further than Yeh’s recipe – and don’t forget the glue – uh, frosting.
While I’m not currently hosting any parties, I am still interested in party tricks, especially when it comes to cake. The trick with this is how easy the batter is to put together (which frankly is what I’m looking for at this point when I ask for dessert). As Yeh says, “It’s foolproof, hangover proof, and can be made in even the best equipped kitchens. ” A pleasure.
Hearty Snack Game: Achieved
The only thing missing from a fluffy, buttery challah was a good handful of spring onions and a piece of toasted sesame oil. The last time I made this recipe, I asked to be alone with the bread. I am not ashamed to admit that.
Although you can buy dumpling wrappers in the supermarket, the dough is just flour, salt and water. From there, hire the other members of your household to help you fill and fold. Or if it’s just you, there’s never been a better time to beat up Bridgerton or whatever people are watching these days.
If I have to tell you how great corn dogs are, you probably haven’t had one before – a fact that should be changed right now. If you close your eyes while you eat one, you can pretend you’re having fun at a cute state fair … even if you’re in your boring apartment (like me).
For snack nights (maybe obvious, but these are nights when you just can’t get a proper meal and instead want to graze for several hours), these cheeto crust, cheese, and bacon filled jalapeño poppers are a great choice.
Another entry for Snack Night. Don’t knock on a fried pickle until you have one! Or five. But instead of using a batter to coat the cucumbers before their hot oil bath, use Yeh’s ingenious trick: egg bun wraps for guaranteed crispness.
