TWD: Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte

Photobucket

I was excited when I found out this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe pick from Amy of Food, Family and Fun was the Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte... until I read that the recipe used 8 raw eggs in the ganache. I wasn't grossed out or anything, but that seemed like a lot to take in. I'm actually not usually one that is concerned about the whole raw egg issue (being a total spoon licker myself) - but, still.

Aside from that I also had pretty much no occassion to make a whole torte to share with anyone. I haven't missed a week yet though and didn't want to start now. So, I am down to the wire and just finishing up making my two individual serving sized tortes. Like Steph suggested I used a couple of my mini paper wrappers to make these. I ended up making a caramel banana flavored ice cream to layer, but chose to just sandwich the ice cream between two layers of ganache - and I didn't read the directions to refreeze the ice cream, so this melty version is what you get (ok, what I get anyway) when I don't read the recipe before forging on.

If I ever get to make this again then I will do the three ganache layers - and not be so impatient. Either way, it still tasted really good - but then, how can ice cream ever be wrong?!

melty is no big deal! the flavors sound great!

Engineer Baker said...

Caramel banana ice cream sounds delicious, and I love the minis. I almost didn't have the patience to let these re-freeze, but melty also means it's easier to eat, right? No harm done!

That melty chocolate looks pretty darn good! And, banana caramel ice cream sounds wonderful. I'll bet it was!

I was freaked out about the eggs too! I probably won't make this again because of it.

Teanna said...

Mmmm! The caramel banana idea sounds SOO good! Your mini looks great!

Carol Peterman said...

Caramel banana ice cream! Yum! I too am a spoon liker with rarely a thought about the raw eggs, but somehow eight of them made me nervous. I experimented with pasteurizing them and it at least made me feel better about serving it to guests.

Heather B said...

yuuuum! Can I have some of that ice cream? Pretty please!!!???

Jayne said...

Melty is a good trait in an ice cream dessert, at least in my opinion! Looks really yummy!

Jaime said...

a little melty is ok, as long as it's delicious :)
