Daring Baker Tasty Goop

Posted Apr 27 2011 5:43pm

Hmmm…I think the title sums it up!  I missed last month’s Daring Bakers, and I didn’t want to miss out on more.  And yet, I’m trying to keep baking to a minimum because we’re showing our house.  Quite a balance!

The April 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Evelyne of the blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz . Evelyne chose to challenge everyone to make a maple mousse in an edible container. Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 27th to May 27th at !

This wasn’t a stellar challenge for me.  Essentially, I tried making a vegan, soy-free mousse, and got yummy goop.  But it wasn’t firm enough to put into an edible container, so I didn’t end up doing that element.  I know, I know.  Next month!

What I did make 1 cup macadamia nuts, raw
1 cup water
1 TBSP maple syrup (I ran out…)
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp agar agar powder
1/2 tsp vanilla powder

Blend really well in a vitamix, chill & serve!

The un-mousse sauce is yummy on fruit, vegan, sugar-free and delicious. If I had to do it again, I’d use more macadamias and more agar for a firmer consistency.

Please check out what the other DB’ers did for this month’s challenge and vote on your favorite!
