I managed to bake something and have nothing go wrong (if you don’t count the fact that I dropped the flour, which caused the bag to burst and flour to go everywhere, and the fact that I managed to slice my finger open with a bread knife. But they didn’t affect the final result!). I am so pleased with these! They are lovely little brioche-y type cakes/bread topped with a sugary/honey/almondy mixture. And the outside is so satisfyingly crunchy! When I cut these in half to add the vanilla custard (resulting in the sliced open finger), they made such a nice crunch noise!
Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fan of nuts and I did try it with them – but I think I’ll probably scrape them off the next one I have. I seem to be the only person in my family who doesn’t like nuts (or mushrooms. Ugh….). Strangely enough, though, I like macarons and they are made almost completely from nuts (but the sugar helps!)
