I know, I know! I've been eating way too many desserts this past month. But what's one to do when temptations come your way. My Taste & Create partner this month is Debbmarie of Let them Eat Cake. She's a daring baker, a member of cake slice bakers and even a part of cookie carnival. In short, her blog is one sinful delight after the other.
That just matches the mood I've been in lately. Another thing on my mind, ever since the daring bakers made flourless chocolate cake in February, has been to bake me a Valentino. So call me crazy or whatever, but I decided to pick this daring bakers challenge from my partner's website.
The original recipe uses five eggs. I scaled everything down to one egg white and baked some valentino cupcakes. When warm, it was almost like eating a souffle. But the cooler cakes were dry and dense. I think I over-whipped the egg whites or over-baked the cake. Either way, an excuse to make this again : practice makes perfect, or haven't you heard!
