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.

These nutmeg, cream cheese and white chocolate palmiers were inspired by these palmiers from Cookin’ Canuck. I’ve never made palmiers before although I’ve wanted to for a while.

When you have that perennial bunch of overripe bananas, there are lots of things you can do to use them up. One of the best is baking a banana loaf. This recipe comes from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, a lovely cookbook from the folks at London’s Hummingbird Bakery, full of recipes for American-style sweet things. The banana loaf is definitely one of the less decadent things in there!
