You know what I'd? I wish each of you, take turns, come to my house and opened my refrigerator: usually is full, with lots of vegetables and bizarre ingredients waiting to be experienced, Sometimes though you heartly, empty like the desert. Typically happens when I leave for a weekend. Here's, the last weekend when I left, I found the return an empty fridge containing only water, Parmigiano Reggiano, various toppings, a pan of currant almost dying and 500 milliliters of cream with a maturity from there in two days. Could I throw the cream? Absolutely no, I do not throw ever the food. And so did this sweet, ready in 15 minutes (In addition to cooking time, I can't work miracles), very soft, scented. Glazed with a chocolate ganache and toasted almond flakes (in pantry have pounds of dried fruit and chocolate always available) and decorated with red currants survivors (just for aesthetics, You can omit them). In short, the cream in the dough makes the cake of an exceptional softness, and it's a great way to recycle something, otherwise, you would have thrown. Try it in coffee and milk or dinner it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
