Daring Bakers

January 2009 challenge

This month’s challenge is brought to us by Karen of Baking Soda and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf.
They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux.

This was my first challenge with the Daring Bakers and it presented some external challenges for me.

I have just moved house and as we are going to be renovating and turning my kitchen area in to a proper kitchen so I dont have a full size oven at the moment . I just have a small bench top induction oven and have not had it long and had to work out how the temp worked on it , but we got there in the end.

I used the first tuile recipe and paired it up with a low fat yoghurt mixed with a rhubarb puree and served with fresh plums and a strawberry meringue on the side. It was a great dessert for a hot summer night.

The tuile was lovely and crispy and light, I made it a bit thick but it still tasted good and went really well with the rhubarb yoghurt and plums.

I was taken back for a moment when you were talking about summer, but I see where you are located now. I love the pairing of tuiles with rhubarb!
