Me proudly presenting
my first prize
won in England
for baking a cake!
I'm not really into contests,
competitions or games.
But in two weeks,
there will be a cake/tart/pie contest
in our street!
We are all practicing.
I'm ashamed to say,
I would love to win this contest.
Isn't that hilariously childish?
I'm already thinking of strategies,
recipes and methods.
It will not be easy,
we all love to bake around here.
And there are lots of foodies in our little street.
I wouldn't stand any change if this was a cooking contest,
Yesterday we tasted the lime coconut cake next door,
today we will taste my peach pine kernel tart.
I combined several recipes,
hopefully it will taste good.
I made a plain crust dough,
added a hint of vanilla
and some toasted pine kernels.
I blind baked the crust for 12 minutes.
I bought some firm, but ripe peaches
sliced them up and covered them in melted butter(20 g),
a table spoon of fine caster sugar
and a table spoon of honey
I placed them carefully in the hot crust,
and baked till golden.
I finished with a glaze,
some peach jam with a tablespoon of water,
heated up in a saucepan.
We will taste it later,
when I bought some cream.
This tart screams for some added white stuff.
Happy Sunday everyone!
