From the sublime to the ridiculous… this week I used two new pieces of equipment:
- A kitchenaid mixer, which costs between £300-£350.
- An icecream maker I bought at a car boot sale for £1.
- Make a syrup of 100g sugar and 125ml water. Strain the juice of 10 passionfruits, discard the seeds. Add 400ml of creme fraiche to the syrup (I put 600ml). Add the juice. Then scoop out the pulp from another 10 passionfruits into the mix, so you have some seeds but not too many.
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
100g unsalted butter
3 large eggs
Zest of 2 lemons
1 cup whole almonds, toasted, coarsely chopped almonds (I did some roasted, then added some raw)
