Perhaps my top ten favorites from the entire series, ordered in disason. My husband complained about how dry and laborious this was, so I doubled it up & threw them in the freezer overnight to figure out how to get rid of the stickiness. I put the mixture in the blender trying to work out the butter and cream, but it just couldn't get smooth. In the future, I'd probably try adding some cornstarch or flour to see if it gets it going again.
Made these for a party, took a bite, went into sugar shock. Thankfully, my Malagasy step-sister gave me a pretty good idea for a party treat: to make a rice/bean dip. She boiled off the fat of two cooked baguettes, so I put the boiled hash browns in a food processor for a few seconds, until it was very fine texture. Then I added my wet ingredients, and it processed to blend. It took me a good ten minutes to blend the ingredients, so I added my dry, and it sped things up. It took me another ten minutes to chill the ingredients, since I prefered to keep them covered, but it's totally worth it. These are great, and I can control the amount of fat in the final product.
I added coconut and a teaspoon of cardemom. I mixed the cocoa and olive oil and I added the salt. I cooked on low in the oven for about 15 minutes and the coconut and the eggs barely melted. The flavor was awesome.
