Natalia of Gatti Fili e Farina challenges us to make a traditional Savarin, complete with soaking syrup and cream filling! We were to follow the Savarin recipe but were allowed to be creative with the soaking syrup and filling, allowing us to come up with some very delicious cakes.
I had never heard of a savarin before this challenge, but it sounded pretty interesting and like the perfect party treat. After searching for a bundt pan (No, I don’t own one. Yes, I know this possibly makes me less of an awesome baker. You know what? Maybe someday when I have more space, but right now, it’s not a big deal!), I made this:
Doesn’t it look… decadent? And delicious? The pairing of the pastry cream filling with the cake and strawberries was really good. I think this might fall in the category of too much work without enough reward, but it was an awesome dessert to try out! (And the next time I see it on a dessert menu at a restaurant, I’m there!)
