Apple cake

Apples cake

An apple cake is not the perfect Fall dessert only……..it can be prepared along all the year. Each home baker has a secret recipe for the “best” apple cake….. This cake is the best apple cake I can remember. Super soft, thanks to the dough: infact the recipe calls for pastry choux recipe……but the proportions are different. I suggest you to try it: served plain, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of softly whipped cream.

white chocolate panna cotta

White chocolate and red berries panna cotta

Another single portion, another different glaze … ..red berries glaze. A white chocolate panna cotta. A light one, not so thick like I wanted it to be, but a glaze able to give a pleasant taste and a nice color. The cranberries shortcrust pastry is the perfect combination with the not too sweet panna cotta, giving a little “crispness” to the dessert. A simple but tasty treat.  

Hazelnut chocolate domes

Hazelnut chocolate domes

Glazes, glazes, glazes. Chocolate glazes, cocoa glazes, fruit glazes, but all with a common feature: they must be very shiny … like a mirror. A simple dessert, as I wanted the focus on a perfect, super shiny glaze. A melt-in-your-mouth hazelnuts bavarian cream combined with cocoa glaze I am quite pleased with the results,  and the dome does look pretty! And it tastes good too, as usual, of hazelnuts and chocolate.
