Cherry Danish

This is an adaptation of a Cinnamon Roll recipe that Barbo sent me - it may well have originated on this forum, not sure to whom to credit it! Anyway I doubled and tweaked and came up with this one:

Cherry Danish

Dry ingredients

1 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup oat fiber
2/3 cup Designer Whey plain or vanilla protein powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon glucomannan powder (or just use 1 tsp. xanthan gum total and delete glu powder)
1/4 tsp. NuNaturals NuStevia 0 Carb stevia powder
1/4 cup Diabetisweet brown sugar substitute
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I actually use Trader Joe's 3 cheese blend)

Wet Ingredients

4 eggs
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons light oil - I use rice bran oil or grapeseed oil
1/4 cup sugarfree Torani or DaVinci vanilla syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup water

Topping

1 can no sugar added cherry pie filling

Icing

4 oz. softened cream cheese
Sweetener to taste
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Enough heavy cream to thin to a squeezable consistency

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350*. Spray or grease 12 muffin top pan wells.

Stir all dry ingredients except cheese together in a medium bowl; once well-combined, stir in the cheese.

Mix all wet ingredients together in a 2 cup glass measure til well blended. Mix dry and wet ingredients together thoroughly, scraping sides and bottom of bolw, and let sit for 5 minutes. Divide evenly into 12 muffin top pan wells. Spread to fill the pan wells. Top each with about a heaping teaspoon of the cherry pie filling - I leave some of the gloppy stuff behind and try to concentrate on getting 3 or 4 cherries on each Danish.

Bake at 350* for about 15 minutes, til the batter is set and turning golden brown.

Let cool in the pan 10 minutes, then carefully remove to a rack to finish cooling. I find a plastic spatula helps get them out of the pans - loosen around the edges first, then run spatula gently under the Danish.

To ice - beat together the softened cream cheese, sweetener, vanilla, and enough cream to make an icing consistency. You don't want it too runny but not so thick that you can't pipe it out either. Spoon into a sandwich baggie, snip off a TINY corner, twist the icing down into the bottom of the baggie and pipe onto the Danish.

Makes 12.

You could use no sugar added pie filling in whatever flavors you like. I have some apple, which I'll try next, and some peach too. They're not easy to find but I got the cherry and apple at WalMart, their Good Value brand, and the peach from Netrition, I believe it's Steel's brand.

I'm also gonna try this with some SF jam, thinned out with a bit of water, one time soon!

It was every bit as good as it looks too, Esther. Barbo's DH, upon eating the original cinnamon roll, said if it was served in a pastry shop no one would know the difference.

Both the cinnamon roll and this Danish have really nice textures, like a high-carb item!

that looks lovely! how creative.

Charski, I have found you can get a terrific glaze to zigzag like that just using powdered erythritol and water too. I totally agree on the "make it in a bag and pipe it" technique. it really fancies things up!

This looks divine! I can't do the sugar-free cherry pie filling but I can use a cream cheese filling and I can flavor it if I want.

Thanks

This looks soooo good! I need to get me some brown sugar sub. Diabetisweet. That's the only ingredient I don't have on hand. Would adding a little blackstrap molasses to regular diabetisweet do the job?

Aw, thanks! :blush: Sorry, I don't know the carb count - in maintenance, I just know what I CAN and CANNOT eat - maybe some kind soul will run it through Mastercook or something?!

I don't have a muffin top pan, so can I just put mounds of the batter on a baking sheet? Do you think it will be thick enough? TIA...

I think this is pretty close:

Per Danish with cherry filling: 248 Calories; 20g Fat; 10g Protein; 17g Carbohydrate; 10g Dietary Fiber; 7g Net Carbs

Per Danish without cherry filling: 228 Calories; 20g Fat; 10g Protein; 12.5g Carbohydrate; 10g Dietary Fiber; 2.5g Net Carbs

I made cream cheese danish today. YUM.

I need to get another muffin top pan because I made 1/2 recipe and there was enough batter to make 9-10 danishes.

Drj, your muffin top pan must not hold as much as mine, or else the filling displaced more batter than the cherry - I got 12 from that recipe.

So how'd you do the filling? NO PICTURES?!

1/4 tsp. NuNaturals NuStevia 0 Carb stevia powder
1/4 cup Diabetisweet brown sugar substitute
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (I actually use Trader Joe's 3 cheese blend)

Wet Ingredients

4 eggs
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons light oil - I use rice bran oil or grapeseed oil
1/4 cup sugarfree Torani or DaVinci vanilla syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup water

Topping

1 can no sugar added cherry pie filling

Icing

4 oz. softened cream cheese
Sweetener to taste
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Enough heavy cream to thin to a squeezable consistency

Preheat oven to 350*. Spray or grease 12 muffin top pan wells.

Mix all wet ingredients together in a 2 cup glass measure til well blended. Mix dry and wet ingredients together thoroughly, scraping sides and bottom of bolw, and let sit for 5 minutes. Divide evenly into 12 muffin top pan wells. Spread to fill the pan wells. Top each with about a heaping teaspoon of the cherry pie filling - I leave some of the gloppy stuff behind and try to concentrate on getting 3 or 4 cherries on each Danish.

Spoon into a sandwich baggie, snip off a TINY corner, twist the icing down into the bottom of the baggie and pipe onto the Danish.

Makes 12.

You could use no sugar added pie filling in whatever flavors you like. I have some apple, which I'll try next, and some peach too. They're not easy to find but I got the cherry and apple at WalMart, their Good Value brand, and the peach from Netrition, I believe it's Steel's brand.

I'm also gonna try this with some SF jam, thinned out with a bit of water, one time soon!

DROOL!!!!!!!

I think my pans are small. I have had this problem with other recipes. I did the cinn roll recipe and the rolls were huge and flopped over the sides so much they almost touched each other.

The filling (Makes too much, but I didn't know how to half 1 egg)
5 oz cream cheese
1 egg
1/2 c powdered E
1 t. fiberfit

I knew I would have to make more than 6 in the muffin top pan(1T. cream cheese mix in each), so I made 4 in a regular muffin pan and added the extra cream cheese mix to the top of those.



Pictures??? My camera has FILM! I am a computer idiot! They were beautiful, if I do say so myself.

Thanks for the recipe w/tweaks Charski!! Looks & sounds great!!! Love cherry "pie", etc, but the carb count is a little high for me with the cherry filling.

Char - I'm having friends in for coffee next week and made some blueberry muffins; but now I think they may stay in the freezer and I'll make these. They look awesome! Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

Could you post or give me a link to Barbo's cinnamon roll recipe?

Tweak, just found out this morning that this is Anita's cinnamon roll:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...mon-rolls.html

Barbo had emailed it to me a while back and I couldn't remember whom she said she had gotten it from. So - THANKS ANITA!

DH loves this Danish. We had them for breakfast this morning, and even *I* said I couldn't think of anything that would improve them! The ultimate from a tweaker, huh?!

I made them...and I love them. They are good!! I made them with cream cheese fillling...and I think I did ok, considering I don't have a muffin top pan!! I did leave out the water in the recipe...I was afraid they would run all over...but they worked out fine! I plan to put a teaspoon of sf jam on the top also...Thanks Char!! Here are some pictures:
