Rose's Heavenly Cakes, Page 351 : The Bostini
Simple and easy recipe. I don't have any latte cups except the free Madonald's colored coke glasses...so i ended up using that instead..:p
The pastry cream was easy to do..steps just like making any custard. :) So i knew exactly what to do. I had only 400g of pure cream and ended up using the rest in sour-cream. Didn't affect the taste and in fact tasted quite good. Since i used non-stick cucpake pan, i didn't grease or flour the pan. I had no problem removing the chiffon cakelets out of the pan either. Since mine is cupcake pan, i put in 2 chiffon cakelets into the coke glasses and poured in the chocolate sauce.
Since i don't own any long spoon, i ended up using bubble-tea straws (i just had bubble tea this afternoon..:p) as prop for photo-taking...LOL!
VERDICT: DELICIOUS! The chiffon cakelets can be eaten by itself and it's yummy and soft! Together with pastry cream, it is yet another dessert. Taste and look complicated when it's really pretty simple to do. Great dessert to serve your guests if you're entertaining at home. I really like it. My daughter enjoys it too. My husband doesn't like all these creamy stuff..but he ate 2-3 cupcakes without the cream at one sitting..he said it's really good! I do agree with him, the cupcakes are heavenly on its own and rather addictive. :D I've been munching on them since they were out from the oven..lol! So i am now left with more pastry cream than cupcakes..:p
Marie Helene's Apple Cake
After seeing Monica, Jenn & Vicki's blogroll on Marie Helene's Apple Cake for their French Friday's with Dorie posting, i knew i had to bake this as well. I have the book and was already eyeing at this recipe. It's super easy and fuss free. True enough, this recipe is a winner. Very yummy and delicious! I wonder if it will go along with the bostini pastry cream.... :D
