I have been having some wonderful food adventures over the last month – so wonderful I have forgotten to write about them. I am also pleased to announced that I have got me a full time job (hooray!) so I imagine I will cook less exciting food but maybe eat out a little bit more. Continue reading →
THIS IS SO DELICIOUS! Inspired by the finale of Breaking Bad, I decided to make a chocolate cake with some blue sugar sprinkles. I followed a recipe from the Australian Gourmet Traveller – Chocolate book for a White Chocolate Mousse Cake – a dense chocolate cake filled with white chocolate mousse. It didn’t work. I was impatient and didn’t let the mousse set properly and it just fell apart. So I made this instead. This resulted in not so much as a nice chocolate cake with a cheeky bit of edible ‘crystal meth’ sprinkled on top, but a mountain covered in snow and ice.
I think it’s safe to say that I am more of a cook than a baker. Probably because I cook every day. However, this cake was really nice, and in many ways I approached it the same way as I would savoury food. The sponge recipe is just a standard sponge, if you know a better one, by all means use that – this is more about the flavours.
