Tom and Jerry Batter Recipe
This is a holiday drink that my family enjoys in the winter. The batter makes an excellent topping for both alcoholic beverages as well as hot cocoa, eggnog, or warm milk for the kids.
Eggs, sugar, and butter with a handful of spices make a batter to be stirred into hot milk and rum to make this winter-time favorite.
Tom and Jerry batter is a perfect cure for cold weather; just add hot water, dark rum, and brandy for instant warmth in your bones!
Very good! After moving away from Minnesota, my husband has not been able to find Tom & Jerry mix anywhere. I surprised him with this and he couldn't quit raving about how good it was. Thanks for such a delicious recipe!
I first made 1/2 batch as written, but found the confectioners' sugar to be very overpowering. I then added in 6 more eggs (whites and yolks as previously prepared) and another 1/2 lb of butter. Much better!!
This recipe is fantastic!!! AND I have a couple tips to make it a little easier and less messy to make. The final product for this recipe is just as good if not better than the stuff you get at the grocery store, but after making it twice, I discovered a couple things that really help the mixing process. First, the suggested serving size in this recipe is about 1T, and I'm not aware of anyone who doesn't put at least 2T in each glass they make, so consider that when estimating the serving number you want to make (and remember, the batter is fantastic kept frozen, so go ahead and make extra!). I used the serving size calculator to adjust it to 45 servings (and there are only 3 people in our home). This # of servings allows you to use an entire 2lb bag of powdered sugar so there's less mess - no measuring needed. At 45 svgs, it then calls for 7.5 eggs - I used 6 large eggs, and 2 small ones to make that work. The completed batch nicely fills a 1/2 gallon container which I keep in the freezer during Ch
This is the best "Tom & Jerry" batter our family has ever tried!!! It makes a huge amount, which is great because it freezes well in small batches and it makes a great gift -- if you can bear to part with any of it!!! :-)
It takes a little time to separate & whip the eggs, but it is well worth it! This is the best T&J batter I've every had. Awesome!!!
