How about something sweet ?? It has been a while since I had posted a dessert recipe. The other day, D was going through a recipe book and shortlisted 3 chocolate based recipes for me. After going through the first choice, I decided to try that as I had all the ingredients in stock…well almost all ingredients 😛 The recipe chosen was White Truffle Cake. The ingredient that put me on a spot was Quark or Fromage Frais, which means “fresh cheese”. I didn’t want to take chances with frozen paneer and so made some homemade Paneer/cottage cheese. Well, the cheese couldn’t get any fresher than that, right ??

I wanted to try something new with the decoration…something I never tried. The easiest option was to make some designs with melted chocolate. Making the designs wasn’t a difficult task but having a steady hand was. For a first- timer, I was pleased with the artwork, if I can call it so.. Lots of room for improvement..Hope to do better the next time… 🙂
