This is a tasty dark and rich treacle tart or some people call it a crack pie or maybe even a chess pie. I added golden syrup, molasses, and flv caramel to make it dark and sticky sweet and wanted more of a caramel note so I added tfa caramel original which is a pretty rich tasting caramel. FA apple pie is the perfect flaky pie crust. The gingerbread adds another dimension with just a taste of spice. None of the real treacle tarts or crack pies have gingerbread but I felt like I needed another layer to make it not so flat and pastry zest did not work.
My experiments with African Horned Cucumber continue. This recipe is based on a recipe for an African Horned Cucumber sauce recipe:
It is an interesting mix of fruits with spice. I really enjoyed it.
This recipe must be steeped 2 weeks.
I forgot to write the description when I was testing it, and all I remember is that it was pretty good.
So once I tasted the Bubble Bruit wine I had to do something with it and a Bellini immediately came to mind. On the inhale I get light peach dry white wine that transitions to a sweet syrup ginger note . This is a well balanced mix I am really enjoying , there is a bit of throat hit for the first 3 days or so..
Tested n the relaod RDA S at 55 - 60 watts
Blood orange champagne and Bubble winecreate the wine base for this mix. Bubble wine has a light booze note if used above 1.5% that is support by the blood orange that has a booze note. The bruit wine is dry but does have a light sweetness from an apple grape note that I am picking up
ginger peach has a creamy body to it that helps fill in the middle of this mix and adds body. it also helps support that ginger on the back end along with the gingerbread, The ginger bread is more of a ginger syrup in this mix then a bread note at this percent ( note I wanted a prominent ginger note - this may not be for every one , if so drop the cap gingerbread to .75% - 1.00%)
Golden syrup is to add that syrup note and adds some body as well
Lemon and lemon sour help to have the peach pop front and adds some tartness to contrast to sweeter flavors, also helps to add that drying effect of a dry wine
Cardamom rose gingerbread......
On VU, we have a DIY challenge going right now.....I was looking for an idea that was unique and interesting. My idea wasn’t chosen, but I was intrigued.....so I mixed it.
Caps Gingerbread was my first choice, but it needs help in the cake department so I went with JF Yellow Cake......mostly because it happened to be sitting on my desk. JF Bavarian for the creamy, dark sweetness and mouthfeel. FA Rose and Cardamom because it’s the only rose/cardamom I have.....used em low so they didn’t take over. FA Meringue mostly for the sweetness.
Off the shake, everything was in your face. 10 days later, all has mellowed quite nicely. Cardamom gingerbread on the inhale, a nice light rose on the exhale. Yum.
This is a blackberry & blackcurrant marshmallow cream on top of a ginger graham crust.
The FLV Boysenberry isn't really used for its flavor but to jam up the berries and make them extra syrupy. I really wanted to use VTA Shisha Blackcurrant. It is easily my favorite standalone currant flavor, but it is pretty potent and tends to want to take over a mix which is why I used it really low. The CAP Gingerbread & CAP Graham is an idea I stole from @ID10-T he used it in his recipe https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/48608#titanic_by_id10_t. The CAP Whipped Marshmallow I used by mistake. I wanted to use CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, but grabbed the Whipped Marsh by mistake and didn't notice it until after I mixed it, but it worked out pretty well.
PLEASE RATE AND REVIEW IF YOU MIX
A thick, creamy, sweet, and spicy gingerbread cake with cream cheese frosting. Working on some simple seasonal/holiday mixes for the changing season and hit this one on the nose. Really loving this. Great as shake and vape, but gets better over time as the spice tones down a bit.
CAP Gingerbread 3%- A great gingerbread flavor but leans a bit more towards a dry gingerbread cookie. I want cake.
FA Jamaica Rum 0.50%- Adds just a touch of sweet spice and darkness.
CAP NY Cheesecake 5%- I always grab this when I want something creamier and have more weight(mouthfeel). Also used it for the cream cheese frosting note.
CAP Butter Cream 1%- Mixed with the NY Cheesecake it completed the frosting and added more creamyness.
TPA Acetyl Pyrazine 0.25%- To give it a more grainy baked note.
CAP Super Sweet 0.25%- Just a touch of sweetener to, well you know, make it sweeter. You may omit the sweetener and it is still great. Some may feel it doesn't need it at all.
This week's recipe is based on the picture of Biscoff cookies. Unfortunately this recipe is going to need a few weeks steep for all the buttery richness to fully come to fruition, so it's not a shake and vape, and I may be adjusting or adding to it later after I see how it steeps out. But so far the molasses and spice notes are at almost the right balance, so long as the DAAP components of several of these flavors steep out. It doesn't currently have a lot of Baked flavor, if those notes don't come out I may add some FA cookie or some VTA Biscuit base...but I was trying to use the least amount of flavorings I could to achieve the recipe taste I am looking for. Right now it's more like the biscoff cookie butter to me, which was also a recipe I wanted to do too. If the baked part doesn't come out enough after the steep I am going to consider this recipe to be the cookie butter version of these cookies, and will not down here in the description if I do anything to change it to make it more of a baked cookie.
