Sunday 30th April 2006Yesterday's Brioche, Frangelico, Chocolate and Pear Cakes
Kiwi chef Julie Le Clerc would have to be one of my most favourite Kiwi food writers and chefs. I adore her recipes and
her books;"Little Café
Cakes", Simple Café food and More Simple Café food. While choosing something for this month's Is My Blog
Burning? IMBB #25, hosted by Derrick of An Obsession with Food, I naturally turned to her Little Café Cakes book
This recipe is based, yet adapted from her recipe for Little Brioche, Pear and Chocolate Cakes.
Living out of the city and far from any decent bakery, I have to rely on my own baking skills for nice bread, especially specialty breads such as brioche. I really love the country life, but there are a few draw backs like the lack of a bakery within walking distance.
So the first step for this event was to make some brioche and let them go stale. I love making mini ones, that way I can throw some in the freezer and just take out one for two for breakfast. I also really enjoy them warmed along side a slow braise of oxtail or some Boeuf Bourguignon to mop up the sauces ... mmmm!
However today I'm creating a sweet afternoon café style dish - the kind of treat that's just perfect with a short black espresso!
