Heavenly King Cake Recipes

Aunt Sally’s helps you become King or Queen of the Kitchen

All you need to enjoy an Aunt Sally’s King or Queen Cake is a fork. But if you’re the kind of person who’s always looking for ways to take things to the next level, this post is for you.

  • If you missed our last post about the history of King and Queen Cakes, check it out here.

We’ve compiled two easy recipes that incorporate our cakes in the creation of some truly delightful dishes.

Let Them Eat Toast

This decadent take on French toast uses our signature Queen Cake to make a life-changing breakfast treat.

Ingredients

  • Aunt Sally’s Queen Cake – 3 slices (each about 2 inches thick)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract (Mexican vanilla preferred)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Dash of pumpkin pie spice
  • Dash of salt

Instructions

Heat large, heavy-bottomed skillet on medium-high heat.

Whisk eggs, milk, and vanilla together. Dredge cake slices in egg mixture.

Add pad of butter to hot skillet, then add a dredged cake slice. Top the side facing up with a dash of pumpkin pie spice and a small pinch of salt.

Cook each side until lightly browned, about 3 or 4 minutes. Repeat the process with each piece.

Serve with pride and be prepared to be lavished with praise!

King Cake Bread Pudding

Aunt Sally’s King Cake needs nothing more than a mouth to melt in, which makes this over-the-top creation a total showstopper.

Ingredients

  • Aunt Sally’s King Cake (sans baby)
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • ½ stick of butter
  • 2 ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 small can condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract (Mexican vanilla preferred)
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of nutmeg

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Combine cream cheese, butter, milk, condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon, pinch of salt, and pinch of nutmeg. Mix well. Add eggs until just incorporated. 

Cut King Cake into small cubes until you get 10 cups’ worth, then fold gently into egg mixture.

Spray baking dish with nonstick spray and add cake mixture. Bake for 1 hour. You’ll know bread pudding is done when you stick a wooden chopstick or toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.

If you want a classic whiskey sauce to go with your new favorite dessert, you can’t do much better than Emeril. See his recipe here.

Enjoy!

3 Cajun Christmas Traditions We Love

Louisiana’s Cajun country, especially St. James Parish, is known for a few longstanding Christmas traditions. We’re talking big, blazing bonfires, hot, savory gumbo, and of course, unique songs and stories. To put it simply, Christmas in Louisiana Cajun country is unlike anywhere else.

3 Cajun Seasoning Recipes to Try This Thanksgiving

Cajun seasoning is popular in many recipes, and many cooks use it to give their foods a distinct flavor, even if the recipe doesn’t call for it.

You can add Cajun seasoning to your Thanksgiving meal to give beloved family dishes a new, flavorful kick. You might not find the three recipes below on a restaurant menu or in a cookbook, but they're so simple and easy to adjust to your taste preferences that you’ll want to make them over and over again—not just during the holidays!

3 Cajun Seasoning Recipes to Try This Thanksgiving

Green Bean Casserole

FRENCH’s recipe for green bean casserole is nearly perfect. It’s easy to vary the ingredients to make this dish suitable for tons of different occasions.

We suggest simply replacing the 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper with the same amount of Cajun seasoning (adjust to taste). Want to add a smoky flavor and extra crunch? Fry up a few strips of bacon, break them up into small pieces, and then add them to the dish’s fried onions. Be sure to wait for the bacon to cool, as hot, greasy bacon can take the crisp and crunch right out of your fried onions.

Instead of baking your bacon-onion mixture on top of the casserole as the recipe instructs, add it right before serving. If you want your onions to be browner, bake them until they reach the desired color. 

Cajun-Spiced Turkey 

Let’s get right down to the main event: turkey! If you haven’t tried a Cajun-spiced turkey, you haven’t lived. Turkey’s lean meat is especially perfect for the strong flavors of Cajun seasoning blends.

We like this Epicurious recipe for its relative ease. If you’d like, substitute in Aunt Sally’s Cajun Seasoning for the recipe’s Cajun spice mix! Just remember that the turkey needs a whole night to absorb the spices before being roasted.

Railroad Biscuits

Not many people know what railroad biscuits are. These holdovers from the olden days were meant to last a week or so, and generally included raisins, nuts, some sort of berry, and some sort of sweet treat in the center. Chocolate, toffee, and butterscotch are commonly used. They’re a versatile and classic Thanksgiving dessert that goes by other names, including “railroad cookies”.

Almost any biscuit recipe will work, but Food.com’s buttermilk biscuit recipe works especially well because the buttermilk’s tang brings out the sweetness in the raisins and berries. All this sweet and tangy recipe needs is—you guessed it—a little bit of spice. It might sound a little weird, but bear with us!

Sprinkle your biscuit dough with just enough Cajun seasoning to coat it. You don’t want to overwork your dough, so mix the raisins, nuts, and berries in a separate bowl. You’ll need to fold this mixture in right before cutting the dough to place on the pan.

All of the recipes above can be adjusted to accommodate any taste preferences, special dietary needs, and amounts desired.
