Tiramisu with chestnut and bananas (very nice combination):



Still very simple decorations since I have been rather busy at work.

Simple is fine by me; it looks and sounds delicious!

Decorations will have to stay simple for a while, it is way too humid and everything is melting. Grrrrr.

Chocolate cake (with beetroot, makes it moist but you can't taste it), whte chocolate mint ganache, fresh raspberries, dark chocolate-orange ganache and dark chocolate glaze.

Alek), I'll take a little of your heat and humidity (it was 3 degrees F/-16C here this AM)!  And I'll take a slice of cake, too; it sounds yummy.

At this time of a year when is not hot enough for airconditioning, and it is quite humid, can;t really do much for decorating, so still siple stuff, chocolate cake with apple roses in elderflower jelly:



I've been experimenting a bit how to get very moist chocolate cake but without using butter or oil Wink The previous weeks' one is with beetroot (and it turned out great), this one is with pumpkin puree. So far in terms of "moistness" of cakes, I would say zucchini works best, followed by beetroot, parsnips, carrots and pumpkin (last 3 are similar). You actually can't taste vegetables in the cake, but they make it wonderfully moist.
So if you need to get someone to eat more veggies, you can always put them in a cake, lol.

Have you tried using just plain apple sauce for butter or oil? It really makes a moist cake, too.

Yes, I tried bananas, apple sauce, pear puree, etc. Zucchini is still number one when it comes to moist cakes Smiley

If you mix carrots & zucchini in the puree you can usually cut down a little on the sugar too. I also have a friend who has used pureed , peeled tomatoes in chocolate cake with good results.
