Once in a week I go to my friend’s place for a dinner and yesterday she made a dessert of baked pears with chocolate sauce. It was delicious. She got the recipe from Aldi Supermarket’s newsletter. So tonight I made it by myself and added some ice cream as the recipe suggested it.
Here I rewrite the recipe.
4 x Conference Pears
100ml Double Cream
1 x 70g Pack Dairy Milk Chocolate
24g Unsalted Butter
4 x Squares Tin Foil
Cut the pears in half lengthways, take out the core/seeds and remove the woody stem. Put each prepared pear on a square of foil, divide the butter between them and fold up into a parcel. Put onto the BBQ and cook, turning occasionally for about 15 minutes or bake in a hot oven. Meanwhile, put the cream and the chocolate buttons in a small saucepan, heat through gently until the chocolate has melted and the sauce is smooth and hot. Serve on the baked pears, great with a scoop of ice cream.
Chocolate mousse cake. I don’t know why I was so tempted to make this cake after a friend of mine, Yunika, showed it to me on her Facebook. I couldn’t wait for her recipe so I started to look for it on internet. After searched for some recipes then I finally decided to give a try a recipe from BBC Good Food as you can read it here: Chocolate Mousse Cake.
On this recipe that I just made it few hours ago before writing this post, I added one (1) teaspoon of espresso. The reason why I did that because my mom’s friend who is expert in baking taught me long time ago to put a little bit of coffee or espresso whenever I make chocolate cake or any dessert that requires chocolate. She said that it would make the cake or dessert tastes tastier and not too sweet due to the bitterness of the coffee or espresso.
The cake really is my guilty pleasure!
Chocolate Mousse Cake, My Guilty Pleasure
Hint: I forgot to write it before about the tin that I used to make this cake. I used 26 cm cake tin removable base due to the volume of the mixture that was quite lots. Also I used my home made shortbread cake by Delia Smith in this recipe. I am sorry for people who had already read this one before I edited it.
