Chocolate Fondant Batch No. 001

i love to bake. but being passionate about something doesn't necessarily make me good at it.

after quite a number of failed attempts, i finally tasted sweet success today. literally.

thanks to a dear friend who introduced the recipe to me, i was inspired to make use of some free time (what a rare luxury!) to bake this afternoon.

and this is the result:

i can make heavenly chocolatey oozy yummy warm cakes with my own hands! such a sense of satisfaction...

so far, my mum and 6 friends have tasted Chocolate Fondant Batch No. 001. 100% positive comments. *gleeful beam*

(if i can do it, u can do it too! check out this recipe and others at http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-make-chocolate-fondant)

oh, it's really really good! i was one of the lucky guinea pigs who tasted it. the other time Peifen made her cheesecakes at our So Simple party she also earned rave reviews. we're so lucky to have a baker, and a good one at that, among us. i aint a big cake-lover, but i always look forward to tasting Peifen's "experiments".

ET said...

Hi Peifen,

Thx for sharing tis "sinful" yet yummy tea snack. Hv tried today, but guess i didnt apply much butter to the baking tin so that's why it didnt come out after cooling. Ended up eating with a spoon, as if eating a pudding! hehehe...

But i am really tempted by the pics you posted here n really prompt mi to do my 2nd round. And u know wat? I succeeded!! Is really something simple, warm n sweet stuff to entertain your guests! Looking forward to your buttermilk scones! Gam Ba Tei! :>

heys peifen!
Thanks for sharing the recipe!
But i have a question. Is it suppose to bake for 6 min or 26 minutes coz i thought the video mentioned the timing twice differently? or is it my ears playing a trick on me? haha.
i got the liquid state, but im wondering whether it will sac and collapse when the fondant cools. hence i bake it for 26 min but it isn't muffin-ish. wat exactly am i suppose to get??thanks!

小猪 said...

nana!

juz voted for u on "Most Popular Radio Personality" & "Carlsberg Friendliest Radio Personality"....hope u win at least one!

Paul said...

Hi Peifen, I just wonder if u can e-mail to me the radio drama that u produced, Message Ep 1, as I can't find on podcast.

Anonymous said...

i tried it... damn hard!! i failed first time around.. i think u can cut abit of the sugar its really sweet. :( sad baker. LOL

Anonymous said...

i think this way of baking the chocolate fondant seems like the outer part is cooked but the center part is not cooked. hence there are liquid stuffs flowing out. and those melted chocolate that flow out are actually mixture of butter, chocolate, flour and eggs. which cannot be eaten raw! wad u think?? cos its baked for only 6 minutes. i dun think its cooked inside.

Lindy said...

Hi Peifen,

I saw this posted at ur blog but i cant find the aluminium tins... where did u get urs from??

thanks.
