The April 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Evelyne of the blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz. Evelyne chose to challenge everyone to make a maple mousse in an edible container. Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite at http://thedaringkitchen.com!

The suggestion for the edible container for the mousse was bacon. Now, I love bacon. And, I do appreciate some sweet/salty combos, eg. sweet & sour Chinese, chocolate peanut butter cups etc. but for me, bacon dessert is taking things a bit too far. I was thinking of making something white chocolate-y for the edible cup, but I thought that would be too sweet with all the maple syrup, so I decided to make a nutmeg tuile cup.

Fancy a chocolate cake without flour? Whether you’re looking for a gluten-free cake, or just something a bit lighter than normal chocolate cake, this is definitely worth a try. The recipe is Nigella Lawson’s flourless chocolate and lime cake. You could use orange instead of lime, or omit the fruit altogether if you want a pure chocolate flavour. To make it flourless, the recipe uses ground almonds instead of flour.
