I have posted this recipe several times, both here and at Jungle Red.
Whenever I mention it elsewhere, like at Facebook, I get requests for it, so here 'tis.
This time with photos.
I found the original recipe in an old Bon Appétit magazine, and it was credited to Joan Hackett. I've guarded the recipe with my life. I've made about a beezillion copies of it in case one (or 20) copies might get lost. It also now resides on my computer (in several places). Then, just to be "for sure, for sure," I bought a copy of an old cookbook which I learned had the recipe in it. THE BEST OF BON APPETIT published in 1979. 1979! See how long I've been guarding this recipe?
I decided to make it this year for our neighborhood Christmas party.
âté. Splashing this hot water onto yourself is going to cause a nasty burn.
âté doesn't slide right out, don't force it. Donald came up with the idea of immersing the pan in some warm water for a little bit, then try unmolding it again).
Voilà! - Enjoy!
