This week's assignment was about developing our own recipe. I grew up eating my Grand-Mother Mamette’s Gateau Rose, that was made of hazelnuts, wheat flour, sugar, butter, egg and “biscuit de Reims”, French pink cookies my grand-mom would grind and use as part of her dry ingredients.
Years later, I lived in Brooklyn, next door to one of the most famous spot in the big apple for Red Velvet Cake and, boy, was it decadent in the most unhealthy way…. I would treat myself (or should I say my “taste buds”) every now and then and would be blown away by the line on the sidewalk every time I went.
Baking take us back to our childhood…. There is something so comforting in a slice of cake… Loving to bake myself, I decided to give a shot to a healthy combination of both these inspirations, including vegetables and super foods to my creation.
If the crew at Meghan Telpner's School likes it, it'll be featured in an e-book sold for the profit of a great cause, wish me luck!
