The Daring Bakers July 2011 Challenge:


Jana of Cherry Tea Cakes was our July Daring Bakers’ host and she challenged us to make Fresh Frasiers inspired by recipes written by Elisabeth M. Prueitt and Chad Robertson in the beautiful cookbook Tartine.

Winter time here in New Zealand so no strawberries therefore kiwifruit it was – what else for a kiwi Daring Baker. I made a chocolate chiffon cake ( just with baking cocoa – not the real thing – hence it is quite light in colour). Flavoured the syrup with coffee liquer.

It turned out really well but maybe I could have cut the kiwifruit slices in half for a more refined look – mine looks very rustic! Tasted devine.

Thanks Jana for the challenge
