Here I go again. Another attempt at starting my Blogging momentum. And for my concerned mates, I am blogging .... still.
So let's start off with something rather.. French. Oh yeah.. my favourite cuisine. Sweet, Chocolatey, smooth and soft. When I ordered the cake with the lady at the counter, she was almost embarassed to confess that she couldn't pronounce the name of the pastry. As featured in the picture, this innocent looking chocolate cake...or dessert is name Praline Moelleux. In French, the "e" on the Praline is accented.
Praline is a like a reputable lady in the pastry world. A little dose is what it takes to lift the overall flavour of the dessert. Yet, it is so subtle to the palate. Praline is simply sugar coated nuts (Hazelnuts, Almonds or Pecans). Praline paste is usually a thick gooey hazelnut paste that is excellent with Chocolate tarts or truffles.
I've found a similar recipe to the one that I've eaten in the cafe. Have a go at this Chocolate Praline delice. It's a definite winner at any dinner party!
Be back another time. Eat well and Enjoy life!
