peach_upsidedown_cakeThis cake is filled with fresh peaches, roasted Saigon cinnamon, roasted ground ginger and toasted pecans,  and that makes it different.

Tips for making Praline Peach Upside-Down Cake:

  • Canned peaches or frozen peaches that have been defrosted can be substituted for the fresh peaches.
  • For more flavor, try adding a tablespoon of bourbon to the butter/brown sugar mixture.
  • Whatever you do, don’t let the cake cool for longer than 10 minutes in the pan before you remove it. It will start to stick as the butter and sugar on the bottom of the pan cool and harden.

Mexican-chocolate-pieMexican chocolate pie is salty and a bit spicy, but also sweet and smooth. What’s not to love about that?

Ingredients
  • 200 gram dry cookies
  • 100 gram butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (depending on the sweetness of the dry cookies)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg white
  • pinch of salt
  • 200 gram sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • half a teaspoon of salt
  • 1,5 teaspoon ground chili
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 700 ml full fat milk
  • 150 gram dark chocolate

 

Preparation  15 minutes

PRE-HEAT the oven to 190 degrees celsius or 375 degrees fahrenheit.

GREASE the spring form with butter and set aside. CRUMBLE the cookies, there are a lot of ways to get the result you like. Use a food processor, blender or even a rolling-pin to crush the cookies. Keep a bit of cookie crumbs aside for garnish.

Slowly MELT the butter in the small saucepan, let it cool of for a few minutes. COMBINE the cookie crumbs, melted butter, egg white, cinnamon and salt. PRESS the cookie mixture in the spring form to create a pie crust.

BAKE the pie crust in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until beautiful golden brown. Let the pie crust cool off completely.

Making the Mexican chocolate pie filling  15 minutes + wait time

Slowly heat milk in a medium-sized pan. COMBINE sugar, salt, egg yolk, cornstarch, instant coffee powder and chili in the bowl of your standmixer. ADD one egg at a time until you’ve reached a smooth mixture.

CHOP the dark chocolate in small pieces and melt them in the hot milk. Keep on mixing the egg mix and POUR in the hot milk. POUR the mixture back into the medium-sized pan and simmer on low heat. Keep on mixing to prevent it from burning, until the mixture thickens. That will take about 5 minutes or less.

PLACE the pan in cold water for about 10 minutes, keep on stirring it occasionally to prevent it from creating lumps. When the chocolate mixture has cooled off slightly, pour it into the pie form. Cover with cling film and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Enjoy!
