Many years ago i was an apprentice to become a chef in a small Michelin restaurant called D'artagnan . I learned so much in that kitchen and i loved it all. All the French exclusive dishes that went out to the guests was so beautifully made and tasted like heaven. Still there is a few thing a remember more the others, one of them is the French pastry Brioche. I remember when they took them out of the oven and the smell was so lovely, and they looked so small and delicate. And they tasted so much more then normal Norwegian pastry,so much softer and full of taste from saffron and rich butter. So as nostalgic as i am i decided to make this French beauties ,not with saffron but with cinnamon. And i don't regret it, so tasty. So i recommend everybody to try out Cinnamon Brioche ones in their life .
I am very fond of testing out new recipes and tastes. So this is one of my testing projects. I have for a long time seen Whoopie pie recipes all over the net, and i have wanted to make them for a long time now. So finally i made them :) Another thing i have wondered how was tasting was Marshmallow Fluff . So i finally made that to. And i have had this flavored oils for some time and i haven't manage to try all of them out. So i off course had to try them as well. So i made whoopie pies filled with flavored marshmallow fluff. To be totaly honest i don't think i will make them again, they became so sweet i really thought i got diabetes there and then. When i use American recipes i normally use less sugar, in these ones i did as well but still the became really sweet. Might be they would be better with a fresher filling. But still i manage to test out all the things i have wanted for a long time so i am still happy. The oils i tested was banana flavor - very tasty,coconut flavor-my favorite, tutti frutti flavor- very children friendly,raspberry flavor- fresh and nice and cheese cake flavor- soft and round taste. I have also tested pistachio flavor- also one of my favorites,chocolate flavor- not tasty at all and orange flavor- fresh and nice taste.
