The August 2011 Daring Bakers were challenged to some seriously sweet business!! When I saw the recipes, my heart did a quick flip. Most readers of my blog know, I don't really have a sweet tooth. While I enjoy the occasional dessert or candy, and love to bake and create various sweetmeats for friends and family, I rarely did my fangs in them. On the other hand give me something spicy and salted and I cave in in an instant!!
Anyhow, I'd just made rich dark chocolate truffles for a party, so I chose to make the Pate de Fruit with some late summer raspberries frozen over from last year's pick!! They turned out beautiful in taste and vibrant in colour - just looking at them was a pleasure. Moreover they were more tangy than sweet - just perfect for my palette.
