Gâteau de la bergère. Rum raisin shepherd cake.

GOURMANDE in OSAKA

Why shepherd ? You could think it’s because it looks like a sheep. It’s a woolly moist cake, deliciously flavored with the liquor infused fruits.

There is a relation with the shepherd pie too. The recipe is a little unusual. Apparently that was done a lot in France in the early 19th century as this ingredient had not been yet type-casted as savory side. Yes, a potato dessert ! And it’s delicious. Actually this is a great base to bake cakes without gluten nor grains nor nuts, so that may be a useful recipe for people with certain food intolerances. Anyway that’s good for everybody to vary.

RECIPE :
Beat in that order :
1 egg yolk + 1 or 2 tbs of sugar
+ 2 tbs of coconut cream + a splash of vanilla extract.
+about a cup of mashed potato flesh
+ water to get a creamy texture.
