The February 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba of Passionate About Baking. They chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on recipes from The Washington Post, Cordon Bleu at Home and Baking Obsession.
This month, like most of the previous months, is always been a fun challenge. I am telling you, these hostess really know how to pick the challenges. This month is no exception, First, you must make your own mascarpone cheese which I would do it over and over since it is really really easy and taste far more superior then the store bought mascarpone. Secondly, you must make your own savoiardi (aka lady finger biscuit), although it wouldn't be too terrifying to do, I still have my difficulty with any baking technique that involve piping. Lastly, you must make your own creme patttisiere, and zabaglione which I can guarantee that (maybe) 90% of the DB's group had made it before.
So, what I have been battling against the challenge each end of the months is how to learn to eat just enough to satisfy my happily growing Buddha's belly ( I am working on it, ha ... ha...)
Thanks Aparna and Deeba for this delicious treat of the month. As always, I thank you Lis and Yvonne for creating this Daring baker's group.
