Your desserts - recipes, pictures and favorite combos!

Hi EFers

I want to collect the EF's wisdom re: desserts.

Which desserts do you make or purchase, what makes them special and do you have a picture and, most importantly, a recipe?

I'll get going:

Favorite desserts at the moment
  • Bündner Nusstorte
  • Ice cream - Migros Menthe + Chocolat
  • Jura Waffeln with vanilla sauce - waffles can be found in Coop and vanilla sauce is easily prepared using this recipe
  • NY style cheesecake
  • Carrot cake

Meringues, double cream and vanilla ice cream ..... and for the health conscious, add a few fruit berries to taste.

Re: Your desserts - recipes, pictures and favorite combos!

Guess what 'le Soufflé Glacé de la Fée' (verte) - just served this to an absinthe specialist over from New York for the Absinthiades this week-end in Pontarlier- and he loved it. The famous absinthe iced soufflé served to Miterrand in 1983 for his visit to Neuchâtel and ended up with a 2 year law suite- and possibly hailed the beginning of the rehabilitation and legalisation of absinthe in Switzerland in 2005 and 2015 in France. He loved it- as do my UK and USA visitors.

Also invented a 'fusion' trifle for Christmas the first Christmas we spent here in 2009- chocolate cake sprinkled with Kirsch, topped with a jar of dark cherries in kirsch thickened with a little cornflour and more kirsch- custard and cream decorated with shavings of dark good quality chocolate and a few black cherried. Very popular now in Surrey where relatives make it regularly for friends.

Re: Your desserts - recipes, pictures and favorite combos!

Well Argentinian styled "Dulce de Leche" is extremely simple and is absolutely delicious.

But if you are a foody and want o experiment an exotic dessert I strongly recommend "Habichuelas con dulce" which is practically sweetened beans, even my father(who is completely Swiss and hates rice) loves this dessert, it is not easy to make, and I strongly recommend removing the beans.

But its amazing cinnamon flavor and creamy texture is out of this world, you can eat it hot, but I love how it tastes when refrigerated.

Re: Your desserts - recipes, pictures and favorite combos!

@Odile
I really liked your suggestion, by quick googling I found those two recipes, of course in French, which is not exactly my strong point.
http://www.lesrecettesdemartine.com/?p=108
http://www.potesandrollmops.com/2012...e-a-labsinthe/
They look easy and I think I can follow them even without understand more then few words. Do you found them authentic?

@etefan02
Can you elaborate more please. I know "Dulce de Leche" and "Habichuelas con dulce" sounds interesting. But what do you suggest? Do it by myself, buy it? And then? Do you eat it by itself? As "Dulce de Leche"is not something that I would just eat with a spoon, for me it is more like Nutella. Some additional explanations and links would be very nice.

Re: Your desserts - recipes, pictures and favorite combos!

Well the Argentinian style dulce de leche, can be eaten by itself or can be used as a spread.
I grew up eating another kind of candied milk, what I used to eat is called "Dulce de leche cortada", which is prepared using spoiled milk, or you can add lemon to the milk(this will spoil the milk) with this recipe instead of getting a caramel what happens is that you get some sort of crunchie toasted milk candy which is heavenly.

http://mariscakesenglish.blogspot.ch...sweet.html?m=1

I would recommend not adding raisins, and add the lemon juice to the milk before cooking and let it rest a minute or two before cooking it.
I would also recommend stirring until the mix is as dark as possible.

And about the Habichuelas con dulce, you just have to add milk cookies to it, and eat it, its like a sweet soap really.

Re: Your desserts - recipes, pictures and favorite combos!

Thx, this looks nice.
For me the Argentinian one is way too sweet to eat more than a tea spoon. But to combine it with vanilla ice cream or some other not too sweet cream it is great.

Dulce de Leche is great for making a Banoffee Pie.

I'm a big fan of self saucing puddings. Easy to make and always a hit.

Re: Your desserts - recipes, pictures and favorite combos!

I bought too many eggs and now have ten left over. I want to convert them into not easily perishable desserts (cookies, freezable cakes, perhaps ice cream). Any ideas?
