I know..it sounds crazy and weird,but there was no other way to describe it! It has the crust of a soft cookie and the interior is like a cake. As I said before, I love bite size desserts. You don’t feel so guilty when you devour them!!
I found this recipe on a Greek site,but as always, I made few modifications. I put less sugar and on the cream, I substitute the sugar with Stevia. I’m trying not to eat too many sweets, I have to admit,that I’m really addictive to sweets,but not any kind of sweets…! Even when I make desserts,I keep 2-3 portions for us and the rest I offer them to the relatives and neighbors 🙂
For the cream:
- 250 ml whole milk
- 1 tsp. Stevia
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 30 gr. corn starch
- 1 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp shredded coconut
- 1 tsp. Malibu rum ( that’s optional!)
In a pot warm up the milk in a low heat,but be careful! Stir with a wooden spatula,so it will not stick on the bottom. In a medium bowl,whisk the egg,Stevia,vanilla, the rum and corn starch. Take the 1/3 of the milk and slowly,pour it into the egg mixture. Whisk fast! You don’t want to eat an omelet with your cream!!
Then pour it into the pot with the milk and mix. Add the chocolate chips and the coconut. Set aside and Cover the cream with a food plastic wrap,to prevent the crust on the top of the cream.
For the cookie-cake base:
- 80 gr. sugar
- 120 gr. GF all purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 65 ml canola oil
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 50 ml milk
- Zest and juice from one orange
Preheat the oven at 350 F.
In a big bowl,beat the eggs with the sugar,till they get fluffy and creamy.
Add the zest and orange juice,the vanilla and beat again.
Pour the oil and gradually add the flour with the baking powder and salt. On the end,add the milk.
Grease a mini muffin tin,add 1 tsp. of the base and on the center add the chocolate cream.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
I experimented again and in 4 of those cookie-cakes instead of chocolate cream I
put goat cheese with vanilla and blueberries.
They came out fantastic! Not overly sweet,fluffy and airy inside,and the crust is like a cookie!
How I love the mesmerizing aroma of baking!!!
And of course I had to try them with my morning coffee!
