Hello & Welcome
to my 16thΒ episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is theΒ simple summer
pleasure of watermelon & roll kuchen πŸ™‚


Cast yourΒ gaze upon these clouds and tell me, what do you see?
I see a duck… turning into a swan… turning into a flock of birds takingΒ flight!
Leave aΒ comment, if you’d care to share your insight πŸ™‚

yarn and daylily gardenyarn and daylily gardenAugust in Canada begins with a long-weekend πŸ™‚ And this long-weekend’s nocturnal rains have allowed for sunny/blue skies with puffy/white clouds floating freely in the breeze. Plus, our neighbour got the weekend off to a great start by surprising me with a bagful of mystery yarnβ€”which automatically makes any weekendwatermelon & roll kuchenΒ a great weekend! You can see it there in the daylily garden πŸ˜‰ The labels are missing, but I’d say it’s a few balls of cotton and maybe someΒ wool? I’ll need to test howΒ it felts.

AndΒ although summer might be half over, it’s just not summer until you’ve had at least one healthy serving of watermelon & roll kuchen πŸ™‚ Last year at this time, we were visiting family/friends in Southern Ontario. The weather there was picnic-perfect. So to their backyard we wentβ€”with a platter of sliced watermelon and fresh batch of my mom-in-law’s puffy roll kuchen love ❀ It was a sizzling hot summer day. And this was a simple yet scrumptiousΒ Mennonite-style family feast!

There are many versions for the Mennonite Roll Kuchen recipe. Basically, it’s just fat-fried, fritter-like puffs of dough that melt in your mouth and taste as light as a cloudβ€”fattening storm clouds, if eaten too often :-/ For a small batch, we (and by “we” I’m referring to chef hubby who does the cooking because he’s the one who adds a dash of “love” to every dish) use the following recipe.

Oh, and that patch of blue in the watermelon & roll kuchen photo is the sky’s reflection shining throughβ€”sink-side upon the kitchen counter πŸ™‚

Roll KuchenΒ recipe

1/4 c whipping cream
1 Tbs sour cream
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbs butter, melted
1 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

Beat egg. Add cream and remaining ingredients. Mix well. Roll flat and cut into rectangles with a slit in the middle of each piece. Fry in deep hot fat until golden brown. Serve with watermelon!

  1. You have to forgive me but fluffy white clouds against a blue sky mean just one thing to me right now – Waterford, Ireland. We are in the All Ireland hurling semi-final on Sunday and there the seas of Waterford blue and white are rising by the second!
