Some of you may know I’m an ice cream addict, so I was very pleased when I saw this month’s Daring Baker challenge. We had the choice to make Ice Cream Petit Fours or/and Baked Alaska. I just made the Petit Fours, the Baked Alaska scared me too much. ;-)

For the Petits Fours I had to make a Brown Butter Pound Cake, Ice Cream and a Chocolate Glaze. The Brown Butter Pound Cake was a premiere. One I managed easily.

I don’t like ice cream made with eggs. So I made my favorite and at all time creamy egg-free Vanilla Ice Cream and for the glazing I just topped the Petits Fours with Nutella.

Daring Bakers - Ice Cream Petit Fours

I enjoyed some pieces of the Brown Butter Pound Cake plain and unfrozen, and it was delicious. I just learned I don’t like frozen cakes or Sandwich-type-Ice Cream. Nevertheless the recipe for the Brown Butter Pound Cake is a keeper and I will surely make it again, but not freeze it. ;-)

The August 2010 Daring Bakers challenge was hosted by Elissa of 17 and Baking. For the first time, The Daring Bakers partnered with Sugar High Fridays for a co-event and Elissa was the gracious hostess of both. Using the theme of beurre noisette, or browned butter, Elissa chose to challenge Daring Bakers to make a pound cake to be used in either a Baked Alaska or in Ice Cream Petit Fours. The sources for Elissa’s challenge were Gourmet magazine and David Lebovitz’s “The Perfect Scoop”.

For the original recipe please head over to the Daring Kitchen Headquarter. There you will also find all the Baked Alaska and Petit Fours my fellow Daring Bakers made.
