A light biscuit dacquoise refreshed with pear and ice-cream. A French sweet plate announcing Autumn…well end of Summer…ok, the end of mid-Summer. No, we won’t have snow tomorrow, but it seems we’ve passed the peak of heat. Let’s celebrate with a little baked dessert.
Walnut flavored mini-muffin sized dacquoises.
Aren’t they fluffy ? The dacquoise is really great, that’s the macaron in less heavy.
Soft-serve version of the brownie ice-cream. That would look nicer with fully frozen ice-cream but there was not enough time.
Des poires pour la soif. Pears for thirst is a French old saying.
It’s addictive… I already made it 3 times.
The idea of this delight is not from me. It’s from the shop. Walnut brownie…mmmm…. ice cream…mmm. I had to try that.
Actually, it lacked flavor of chocolate, there was nearly no bits of walnut. Names are always mouth watering but I find most commercial ice creams disappointingly bland, mostly fat and sweet. So I made mine.
Super easy :
Slice and freeze 2 small bananas. Place them in a blender with 3 tbs of good unsweetened cocoa, a pinch of instant coffee a 1/3 cup of water. Blend it into a cream. Mix in a handful of walnuts broken in big pieces.
Pour in 3 cups. You can eat them immediately if you like soft cream type.
Cover with a film and place in the freezer at least one hour and your have an ice-cream texture.
And you can really feel the chocolate and walnut brownie melting in your mouth. The banana flavor is extremely light, it simply brings sweetness and enhances the nuances of the cocoa.
