I originally made these Bubble Éclairs because I wanted to test out Dorie’s pasty cream recipe. However, I gave up on the pastry cream after several failed attempts. I ended up making these Éclairs with a cocoa whipped cream filling instead. I also wanted to make these Éclairs because I thought I could knock 2 recipes out in […]
I had never heard of a Merveilleux until a couple of weeks ago, and certainly never tasted one either. I stumbled across a photo of one of these on Instagram or Facebook a couple of weeks ago and I have been obsessing over them ever since, just trying to find a recipe. I looked up […]
This was one of the first recipes I tried out when Baking Chez Moi was released. Here is a link to that post with my process photos. The caramelized Rice Krispies are outstanding!
I made these Cocoa Almond Meringues after seeing a picture of the ones in Dorie’s book, Baking From My Home to Yours. Her pictures featured these crinkled meringues that I could just taste in my mind, if that makes any sense. I had all of the ingredients anyway, so I figured I should make some […]
I know I just made a chocolate cake, but I wanted something that was a tiny bit sweeter and fluffier. I decided to try my hand at a Chocolate Dobash Cake, Hawaii style. It has layers of cake and pudding-like frosting that is light and delicious!
I felt like I needed to take a break from making cookies and realized that I don’t have a good chocolate cake recipe at hand. There are thousands of search results on the internet for chocolate cakes, but my colleague forwarded this Chocolate Layer Cake recipe to me, and naturally I wanted to try it […]
Desert Roses or Roses des Sables are what I think the easiest things to make in Baking Chez Mois, and it tastes delicious, too! This recipe is basically melted chocolate poured over cornflakes. I didn’t follow Dorie’s recipe, at least by not adding dried fruits and nuts, and kept it very simple. This recipe is what […]
I felt like taking a short break from Baking Chez Moi, so I started going through Baking: From My Home To Yours. I came across the recipe for Snicker Squares and immediately started drooling. It might have been the mention of dulce de leche or it might have been the candied peanuts. Either way, both […]
The first time I had eaten Marquise au Chocolate was when a friend made it for a small group of us for New Year’s last year. It was incredibly delicious, but we didn’t know what the proper name for it was – we called it “fondant.” When I got Baking Chez Moi, I read through […]
I made Edouard’s Chocolate Chip Cookies again. I think these are pretty good. They’re crispy on the outside and a little soft in the middle. The almond flour adds a nice nutty flavor, too. I’m thinking these might taste good sprinkled with a little bit of salt on top, too. Maybe I’ll try that next […]
