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.
I was, once again, perusing Pinterest for recipes.....and I stumbled on this. The picture was soooo beautiful.....I had to find a way to vape it.
I was also looking for a good use for WF Marscapone.....and I found it. It works perfectly here....twangy and thick, bolstered by the VT sweet cream. The cake was white in the picture so I choseWF Fluffy White Cake over FW White Cake because it’s just so much better. Bumbleberry is perfect for me, but I can imagine you can sub it with another mixed berry at the appropriate percentage.
I hope you mix it and enjoy!
Second breakfast? What do Hobbits eat for second breakfast? I know what I would eat.....maple bacon pecan donuts. I’m hoping Middle Earth has everything they need for these donuts...I’m hoping the bacon comes out with a steep. I didn’t want it taking over the mix, so I kept it low.....might need a bumping up, being Hobbits like bacon. Thank you Jennifer Jarvis for such a fun challenge!
Custard? Cookies? Who doesn’t like custard and cookies!? This was one of my first recipes using VT Honeycomb.....and probably my most successful. If you don’t have Custard Premium(I’m sorry), then use INW Custard @1.5% and TFA Butter @0.5%.....close, but not quite as good. Mix it, love it. Let me know how y’all like it.
So this came out of a sleepless night and a search for green pancakes for my restaurant. After some searching, I found matcha and matcha rice crispy treats. Intrigued, I made them the next day and they’re pretty damn good! This is my attempt to recreate the lovely, light floral flavor of the treats. And to find another use for FE green tea besides @exclusivegirl’s fabulous recipe.
This is my first posted recipe. Please try it and give me any feedback!
