Finally! A Printable Recipe For Blogger

This is exciting news!  Most bloggers on Blogspot have never had a  cool recipe card print-out. Wordpress has all of the  nice plug-ins. We now have The Recipe Wiz

I have looked high and low, trying to find a gadget or code for Blogger on Blogspot.  I have used Print Friendly, Google Sites for printables, Recipage and Key Ingredient.
This new one works perfectly!  How exciting is that?

Well, look no further fellow Bloggers.  We have arrived! Introducing The Recipe Wiz  It's FREE!
See how it looks nice and neat in a box with the print option.

 A sample of my Aebleskiver recipe, The Recipe Wiz.
The printable recipe is at the bottom of my page for you to try.

 When you go to The Recipe Whiz, this is the form you will see.
You start by filling in all of the details and you can even include an image. Add the recipe name, summary, which is a short description.
Type in how much  it yields.  Type your name, where it says author.
Start adding your ingredients. Click  the + add another ingredient button for each ingredient.
Do the same for the instructions.  You can break the instructions down by creating different paragraphs by click  + add another instruction.  Add Prep time....Cook time....and total time.
Click the green button to get the code.  Remember it goes into your post on the html side, not compose.

To add an image:  just upload a photo you want to use for the recipe onto blogger, Photobucket or and get the url for the image.

The recipe will be formatted with microdata to make your recipes easier to find on the internet.

When you are finished adding your recipe info into The Recipe Whiz, you click the green button like this one, that is at the end of the recipe
The Microdata code is added in the html part of your blogger blog post.
Here's a sample of what my Aebleskiver recipe looks like.
Go ahead and click that print recipe button!

Aebleskivers - Danish Pancake Puffs
little balls of pancake batter
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 6 Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 Tablespoons melted butter
Preparation: 1. In a bowl, mix flour with sugar, baking powder, cardamom, and salt. In a small bowl, beat egg to blend with milk and 2 tablespoons butter. Add liquids to dry ingredients and stir until evenly moistened.2. Place an aebleskiver pan over medium-low heat. When pan is hot enough to make a drop of water dance, brush pancake cups lightly with melted butter and fill each to slightly below the rim with batter.3. In about 1 1/2 minutes, thin crusts will form on bottoms of balls (centers will still be wet); pierce the crust with a slender wood skewer and gently pull shell to rotate the pancake ball until about half the cooked portion is above the cup rim and uncooked batter flows down into cup. Cook until crust on bottom of ball is again firm enough to pierce, about another minute, then rotate ball with skewer until the ridge formed as the pancake first cooked is on top. Cook, turning occasionally with skewer, until balls are evenly browned and no longer moist in the center, another 10 to 12 minutes. Check by piercing center of last pancake ball added to pan with skewer--it should come out clean--or by breaking the ball open slightly; if balls start to get too brown, turn heat to low until they are cooked in the center. Lift cooked balls from pan and serve hot (see notes). Repeat to cook remaining batter.Serve the warm pancake balls with butter and jam or dusted with powdered sugar. To make filled aebleskiver, add about 1/2 teaspoon jam to the batter in each cup just before you make the first turn.
Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Yield: 20 - 25 puffs

NOTE! I customized the coding to get the look I wanted.  This is what I did. Instead of a thin line, I made the border a dotted line, which is 2px, instead of the word thin.

I also made the photo bigger, so I used 500px, instead of 100px
I highlighted the code to show you where those changes are.

I know many of you should be so happy to have a recipe print-out on your blog that looks nice and organized.

  1. Linda,
    How do you get to The Recipe Whiz? Is it an app you add to your blogger layout? Do you go outside your blog to an address on the internet?


  2. This is great to know, Linda! Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. Linda, you are the smartest one! What a great idea! You're the best, my friend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. Thanks for sharing Linda! I am thrilled to now be able to add this to my blog for all the recipes we share!!

  5. You have made my birthday, m'dear!

  6. Thanks for sharing, Linda! I don't know if I can figure it out, but it sure would be nice!

  7. This is great. I am going to see if I can do it. Thanks! sheila

  8. What a neat feature for blogger blogs!

  9. I'll give it a whirl! Thanks Linda.

  10. This sounds fantastic, Linda! I sure can use it as I usually post a recipe in each one (or at least every other one) of my post. You are brilliant!


  11. Thank you Linda-
    I am excited!

  12. Linda I can't thank you enough for this. I'm so excited.

  13. This is a fabulous idea dear Linda! You are such a wiz, I am envious, wish I was a fourth as savvy as you this way I would figure out "WHY MY NEW POST'S THUMBNAIL DOESN'T APPEAR FOR THE LAST 2 HOURS!" Do you know? Maybe you can explain if this is happened before, even to you?
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  14. To be clear, the thumbnail doesn't PUBLISH !

  15. That should improve my culinary skills no-end. Looks fabulous .. . .
    Eddie . . :)

  16. That will make blog posts on recipes much easier to save and I love how it formats on the blog post too, thanks for sharing this Linda!

  17. Hi Linda, you are so talented, great post. Happy Mother's Day and Cinco de Mayo to you!

  18. I have often wondered how to do this Linda. Thanks for teaching us all so much. I'm pinning to TOHOT and my blogging board.

    Happy Thoughts of Home. We are so glad you joined us. :)

  19. You continue to amaze me with your talent! Not sure if I can do this but will try. Thanks so much for sharing!


  20. Thank you so much. It is very helpfull.

  21. Thank you so much for this! I'm off to try it out!

  22. Hi Linda! I was using this site for changing my blog posts over to being printable...but now the site isn't working. Are you having the same issue? Thanks! Any insight you have would be fabulous!

    1. Hi Carol, it tried it recently and it is still working. Actually there is a better Recipes generator now.
      My friend designed it, when I told him Blogger needed a similar recipe format like WP.

    2. I just purchased this, I did a test and it looked great. Just waiting to get my log-in. Thank you for sharing

  23. Hi, Linda! Well, now... this is AWESOME! I've searched the interwebs, high and low and tried just about every one of the other options that you mentioned trying yourself, but none of them ever turned out to be what I wanted (or needed) them to be. I'd reached the point recently, where after many, many years using the Blogger platform, I was giving some serious thought to making the old switch-a-roo to WordPress - simply to have the option to use one of their nifty little recipe plugins. But now, you've come along like the fairy blogmother, with this fantastic little gem and saved the day! Thank You SO much for finding and sharing this, Linda! I can not wait to give it a whirl! Wish me luck and have an amazing week! ~Mary

    PS: I just noticed Carol (above) said she had a problem with the site not working when she tried it recently, but I'm going to cross my fingers and go for it! I've been waiting far too long for something like this, to not go and at least give it the old college try. Oh, and in case I haven't already said it, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I'll be sure to stop back and let you know whether or not I have the same problem that Carol did :~)

  24. Linda, Thank you so much. I am hoping you can help with two questions: how do you insert affiliate links into the Recipe Wiz?? And, how do you insert other links? That would be such a HUGE help if you know how to do those two things. Alyssa

    1. Hi Alyssa, actually there is something better now for recipes. It is the FREE Recipes Generator.Recipes Generator


I so appreciate your visits and sharing your thoughts at Life and Linda.
