  • Upside-down pear cake

    • Agaillard on June 12, 2016

      I did this with Armagnac (did not have Whisky or Bourbon), and substituting maple syrup for molasses. I also used salted butter as I prefer my caramel on the salty side. That was quite nice and spicy, although the cake did look much lighter than in the picture (in terms of color). My guests really liked it (the guy was really happy to the point I felt a bit embarassed towards his wife who also liked it ... but well... lol :) I served it warm at breakfast after 10 minutes on grill mode oven. I served this at work as well and everybody was complimental... It was really tasty and the Armagnac came out nicely.

  • Chocolate carrot brownies

    • Agaillard on November 26, 2018

      I liked it, but didn't love it. That being said, comments at work were really complimentary "best chocolate cake I ever had" "extraordinary"...etc. so maybe just me :) I also thought it was a lot of faff/washing up : four bowls which had to be worked on separately then mixed, one for the eggs, one for the dry mixture, one for the chocolate/butter, one for the carrots. I omitted the raisins also, because I do not like them, and replaced vanilla extract with actual vanilla (I did not have any left).
