Meet the Chef: Brodi Jackson

I am Brodi, the head chef and creator of Brodi’s Kitchen. I worked in private equity and venture capitals for years, but I have always loved cooking and baking. In 2018, I left that all behind and started Brodi’s Kitchen at our local Green Market. What struck me immediately was how many people have food restrictions. Nothing was worse to me than seeing a kid at a birthday party that cannot eat the cake. That fueled me to develop delectable bites that everyone could enjoy. So now this banker turned baker is serving you my heart on a platter.

4 truffles
  • 1 cup reserved (16 oz) Florida Crystals® Organic Powdered Raw Cane Sugar
  • 1.5 cups (6oz) of dry whole milk powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tsp ginger
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp clove
  • 1/2 cup (4oz) molasses
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbps (3oz) sweetened condensed milk

Step 1

Measure 1 cup of organic powdered raw cane sugar and set aside the rest. Mix the remaining organic powdered sugar, dry milk powder, salt, and spices in a large mixing bowl. 

Step 2

Measure and mix together the molasses and sweetened condensed milk. It is easiest to measure both in a single liquid measuring cup. Next, add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients.

Step 3

Mix the liquid into the dry ingredients initially with a spatula. The mixture will form a dough ball similar to bread. You will need to work the dough with your hands to fully combine the ingredients.

Step 4

Turn the dough onto a work surface or silpat mat lightly dusted with powdered sugar. Knead the dough similar to kneading bread dough. Push the dough away from you with the palm of your hand. Lift the edge farthest from you and fold the dough over onto itself. Turn the dough 90 degrees and repeat. Continue kneading for a minute until the dough is smooth and firm. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar if the dough becomes too sticky.

Step 5

Cut the dough and form into balls. You can make the truffles any size your desire. The size of a large marble is a perfect bite size (4-6 grams). You can use a kitchen scale to measure each truffle to make sure they are precise or simply eyeball. Roll the dough into a ball in the palm of your hands and then drop in a bowl of reserved powdered sugar to coat.

Chef's Tip

Truffles will keep in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks.

Whole milk powder works best for this recipe but you can substitute with non-fat dry milk powder.
