Baking Chez Moi (Rewind): Tiger Cakes

I had a couple months of being incredibly ill that started near the end of 2015 and I’m finally catching up to all the wonderful recipes I missed.

Tiger cakes are little chewy egg-white based nuggets of chocolatey almond flavor.DSC_0837.jpgNothing too complicated about the ingredients.  I was initially worried these might be too bland or unbalanced with the intense chocolate and light egg white.DSC_0842.jpgDSC_0850.jpgDSC_0840.jpgDSC_0838.jpgThe ingredients came together quickly.  I was pretty surprised how simple it was and I even cheated a little by chopping my chocolate in the food processor.

DSC_0854.jpgThis may have let to my final cakes having more of a mottled look than a tiger striped look but since I was planning on dunking them in chocolate it didn’t matter much.DSC_0861.jpgDSC_0862.jpgThe end result was chewy with intense chocolate goodness. The texture actually held up well for a few days.  DSC_0867.jpgDSC_0883.jpgDSC_0874.jpgThe tiger cakes were pretty great and I’m feeling relieved to get on the road to catching up.

  1. Those look gorgeous. I’m sorry you were ill, but I’m glad you’re on the mend. I’ve only taken part in TwD sporadically, so these are on my catch-up list. Your photos make me want to get them off that list right away!
