Outtakes: Sweet Dishes
September 29th, 2005

As the previous title Outtakes: Savory Dishes suggested, here’s a variety of sweet dishes which have not ended up on the blog:

Fig Tart

Fig Tart
Although an eye catcher, still a category A dish, which I had baked with a left over pastry crust…the combination wasn’t too compelling, mostly due to the rather crumbly pastry.

Melon Granita

Melon Granita
Another type A experience, the melon taste was not up to par with the nice color of the granita.

Rhubarb Cake

Rhubarb Cake
Turned out pretty good – revisiting the images recently, I couldn’t for my life recall the recipe for the batter/dough. Also, it would probably look nicer with pink rhubarb which isn’t always easy to find. Category B.

Ice Cream

Ice Cream
Very yummy and fun to eat – a type B – recipe lost (can’t believe this happened, need to look more).

Blueberry Cake

Blueberry Cake
Definitely a hit – unfortunately another one-hit-wonder?! Again, I haven’t written down a word, neither what batter I used, nor what kind of custard-like topping I poured over it. So sad about this B…

Physalis

Physalis
This really doesn’t qualify for neither A nor B, it’s one of my favorite sweet decorations. Physalis dipped into various kinds of melted chocolate and – if desired – in chopped/shredded pistachios or coconuts. Also perfect as a sweet snack.

Meringue

Meringue
This meringue looked a lot better before they went in the oven, they turned slightly brown and therefore wouldn’t qualify for perfectly white meringues… hm, an A!

Mutzenmandel

Mutzenmandel
Those little delicacies developed out of leftover yeast dough. Similar shaped ones can be found in Germany, which originally are more crisp than mine turned out, I also didn’t use any almonds (which are rather essential). A mixture between A and B.

Shake

Shake
Shakes I usually make out of various readily available fruits – so none tastes the same. B.

Datschi

Datschi
I’ve been trying to recreate my Grandma’s Datschi (regional kind of plum-cake) for ages, as I don’t have her recipe for the dough. This one didn’t even come close, I’ve prepared better ones in the past. So the search continues… A.

PS: We’ll be on holiday until early October, with limited if at all online access; hence delicious:days won’t be updated per our normal schedule…
