I visited Burch & Purchese whilst in Melbourne for
the top 50 MasterChef Auditions...
And was absolutely blown away by the shop, the kitchen
and the sweets!
I managed to find my way back to the shop...
And into the kitchen!
Julia also returned to jump in the kitchen
Two MasterChef Dessert Queens in the one spot!
That could only mean one thing...
Create a delicious dessert canape
to serve to the guests at Burch & Purchese....
Doughnut Panna Cotta
300g brown sugar
350g plain flour
300g cold unsalted butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
In a mixer with a paddle attachment, on a slow speed,
mix the flour and sugar together until well combined.
Crumble in the butter and continue to mix until the mixture resembles sand.
Turn out onto a bench top and lightly knead until the mixture comes together.
Roll out to about 3mm in thickness, then pop into the fridge until hard.
Take out of the fridge and cut into desired shapes...
I did circles...
But you could do squares or even ginger bread men shapes!
Pop on a lined oven tray and bake at 170 degrees celcius for about 15mins or until a caramel brown.
For a neat finish, recut your desired shape while the sable is still hot, then leave on the tray to cool.
These are great just as they are or even better with a topping...
In my case panna cotta, but you could do a flavoured cream, jam, ganache....the sky's your limit!
Serve with a good cup of tea..

A maamoul mould!
The boys came in for a visit too...
I think they heard that there was a few samplers to be tasted!
Ky was absolutely wrapped to meet the boys :)

And on the flip side I think the boys where chuffed to meet the girls!

Was lovely to meet you all...
