Today, my friend Jenna and I are starting part one of perfecting the French macaroon. Wish us luck!
i have a friend who is on the elimination diet as a tool to battle her chronic fatigue. after hearing some of the things she could eat and about a few naughty sneaky spoonfuls of ice cream i decided i was going to make her a tub that would be all fine with her! because of the inability to add any flavours to the ice cream i made it a slightly toffee flavour which had no extra additives however did make it a little over sweet.
i then realised we would be hanging out with a few other lovely ladies one night and as usual i wanted to bring some sweets along! so the challenge was set something yummy using only lactose free milk, eggs, sugar and pears (without skins). i ended up with basically the same dish for all, a poached pear pavlova!
a chewy meringue with a hidden jackpot of chocolate ganache topped with whipped cream, half a poached pear and a little nest of toffee curls. the only difference for the fussy version there was no ganache and the lactose free ice cream instead of cream.
Pretty sure you are my baking hero! I am so jealous of your skillz! Stay awesome and keep baking! Jade xxoo #yournumber1fan
