TWD: Savarin


The month-long hiatus was totally unplanned for. The series of unfortunate events started with my laptop breaking down and when I finally got it back from the repair shop, my camera died. After I got my camera repaired, I thought I should be spared from any misfortune for the time being but unfortunately, I almost chopped off my finger when I was preparing dinner two days ago and I had to be rushed to the emergency room, duh...! With my finger still in pain, I wanted to give TWD a miss this week but the savarin recipe looks so interesting that I just had to give it a try!

I made a simplified version of savarin. Using a mini bundt pan, I made half a batch of the dough and I got four tiny savarins. The cakes were then brushed with syrup, decorated with whipped cream and raspberries. The savarin is not very sweet, just the way I like it and it tastes really good with cream and berries too!

Your mini bundts are adorable! I hope your finger heals quickly for you. They say things happen in threes - so you should be good for the rest of the year at least!
