Yup, I still miss home. This was back from my crazy baking days. I?m not gonna go into huge detail here, but this was toasted coconut bread I made from Tyler Florence?s Real Kitchen (apparently stolen from a Sydney restaurant I went to called bills), topped with local raspberry jam and chocolate coconut sorbet. This was my first attempt at chocolate sorbet, and I was pretty happy with the results. It was a simple syrup base (equal parts sugar and water, simmered together until the sugar dissolves) with chocolate and coconut milk. My chocolate didn?t melted 100% smooth, which affected the texture once I froze it, but I really liked the sorbet. It was almost like a coconut chocolate fudgesicle! Or a Jello Pudding Pop, minus the stick and cool Bill Cosby voice over.
Ah, comfort baking at its finest. ~LTG
