First Daring Baker's Challenge!!
Here it is!! the october daring baker's challenge!!!
Bostini Cream Pie!!
Was it hard to make?? Not really…just that the number of eggs required in the recipe was mind boggling..at least for me…. :P I halved the recipe and used around 7 eggs...truly when u make a recipe that someone else has chosen that you get to learn more …in this case, how ‘restaurant type’ desserts are created…. I think on my own, i will not consider making a recipe which uses cream and 4 egg yolks to make custard..(isn't custard powder n milk enough???!! :P ) Basically the Bostini Cream Pie has 3 parts to it…a orange chiffon cake drenched with rich chocolate glaze sitting atop of rich eggy custard… Served it to two different groups of friends..everyone was quite enthusiastic and gave positive reviews… i especially loved the custard…after cooking it, I couldn’t resist licking the spoon and pot clean!!
Mary of Alpineberry was the host this month...hop on over to her blog for the recipe and mouth watering pictures of the cream pie... :)
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
