It’s the last recipe for my involvement in the Blue Ribbon ‘Best Thing With Sliced Bread’blogger challenge, and this month we were supposed to bring a delicious dessert recipe to the table with Blue Ribbon sliced bread as star of the show.
In our mystery boxes this month we got butter, ricotta, a vanilla pod, sugar, walnuts and a loaf of Blue Ribbon Low GI crushed wheat brown bread.
If you’re not familiar with this very cool campaign – check out my first appetizer recipe and my mains I created for this initiative. I was very chuffed to have won the first challenge and the main prize (R10 000 Yuppiechef voucher) has me all edgy and anxious. Who will the winner be?!
But enough nail biting, lets get back to the recipe. I added the ricotta to a blender with the seeds from the vanilla pod and a little sugar syrup and just whizzed it up, refrigerated it and piped it with a piping bag.
Next, I made walnut brittle bread wafers, by toasting the bread until dark – rolled it flat with a rolling pin, gave it a good spread of butter and dipped it into fine walnut brittle.
Then you can be all fancy and make spun sugar to impress your guests. How stunning?
I think this is a pretty mouthwatering treat after a lovely meal and your guests will definitely think you a gourmet cook when you whip up this dessert. It is simple and easy, and can be prepared in advance. Thank you to Blue Ribbon for this awesome campaign. So, go get your loaf of Blue Ribbon and start cooking!
