So every Friday or Saturday night, we make our way over to One Girl Cookies for their special dessert nights. As always, I had the tasting of three desserts. The first, was a ‘cornmeal zeppole with rosemary creme fraiche gelato and drunken raspberries’. The zeppole was dry and a bit dense (though it gave me a great idea to make cornmeal beignets…mmm). Next was a ‘chocolate and port pudding tart with spiced whipped cream and a toasty nut crust’. The crust, had a nice mix in texture of flakiness and crunchiness from the hazelnuts. Last was ‘candied fennel cake with fennel ice cream and orange marmalade’. I would love to try this as a frosted cake with orange buttercream. As for the cake, pictured above, there was a great combination of fennel seed and other spices including ginger, cinnamon, and possibly a pinch of ground cardamom. Going to One Girl to experience the unique and flavorful desserts has become a weekly ritual. So check back next week to see what’s in store.
