Another birthday treat for the husband…Most of my friends say I spoil him too much, but there is something magical about reaching 30 and we had to make the most of it. You’ve seen his Peach and Marshmallow birthday cake on which I spent quite some time playing with the blowtorch…for aesthetic reasons of course. Somehow I couldn’t quite achieve the same standard during the birthday week end with the friends. Going camping being the main contributing factor…although I could have brought the torch…but toasted marshmallows could not possibly be enough for such a big birthday, so here are some real treats to cook at the end of a BBQ: Oranges filled with Chocolate fondant and Macadamia nuts.
Unfortunately, even with our friend Simon’s effort, the pictures are not too good, sorry about that. The plan is to make some posh filled Oranges at home and take proper photos. But too many people have asked for the recipe so here it goes.
First let me acknowledge the person who gave me the idea of this wonderful BBQ dessert: Foodie Quine from Aberdeen @www.foodiequine.co.uk. See her post on Outdoor Cooking here. She is involved in many events and really is the foody queen of Scotland. I am always interested in what she does, such as foraging, outdoor cooking, product reviewing and she is renovating her kitchen which looks amazing!
