Mini vanilla cheesecakes with a crunchy Lotus® cookies crust and caramelized hazelnuts, salted caramel and caramelized apples, de-li-cious…
I really enjoyed these mini cheesecakes, there’s a crisp crust made of crushed Lotus® cookies mixed with a bit of caramelized nuts, a creamy vanilla cheesecake, slightly crunchy apples bathing in salted caramel, and a crown of caramelized hazelnuts, it’s a delicious mix of textures and flavors.
Chocolate strawberry jam quick bread is a rich and flavorful chocolate cake laced with strawberry quick jam, delicious!
Here I wanted to make a chocolate bread, but, you know, a whole chocolate loaf can be boring sometimes. I had some strawberries in my fridge and immediately thought of making a quick jam and lace my chocolate cake with it. This quick jam only contains a few spoonfuls of sugar and remains a little tangy, I do not recommend using standard jam as it would be much much too sweet.
This kumquat and ginger jam is a pure delight! The small addition of ginger to this kumquat jam really brings it to another level, so flavorful! Kumquat and ginger jam can be enjoyed with bread and butter but also in your baking as a topping or filling, it is delicious with pork recipes too, so versatile and delicious!
A delicious peanut brittle, with a hint of vanilla, very addictive!
This recipe is not difficult to make, you only need to be swift therefore, and as always when making candies, have all your ingredients measured and ready before starting, together with your buttered baking sheet. Watch your caramel at all times, do not leave for any reason or answer your phone.
Mini fruit pies: caramelized apples on vanilla pastry cream, strawberries on chocolate pastry cream with a dollop of whipped cream on top, delicious!
Isn’t everything small so so cute? These mini fruit tartlets are so simple and yet so delicious. I made them with the fruits I had on hand but of course, the combinations fruits/flavored pastry cream are endless.
