Gluten Free Chocolate Fondant

Gluten Free Chocolate FondantEver since I published the recipe for “Half-Baked” (in French MI-CUIT) whose closest name in English is Chocolate Fondant, tens of thousands of people around the world have seen it. Every day there are Instagram stories of people making the recipe in different countries. Amazing, what a small world.

Gluten Free Chocolate FondantI recently received quite a few inquiries about making the recipe gluten-free or kosher for Passover. I am a big believer in “regular” recipes for Passover, without matzah flour and without matzah. I think that in the pastry world it is possible to achieve wonderful results with very high quality substitutes even for Passover or for gluten intolerance.

In addition, to add an element of surprise to it, I also hid a chocolate surprise in the center. I chose white chocolate so that children can also enjoy the recipe, which sometimes seems too bitter to them, but you can also choose dark chocolate, milk or dolcey (caramelized) and you can also give up the surprise.

    What is 8 cubes of white chocolate

  • 20 June 2021

    הי שרון , האם אני יכולה לעשות את המתכון הזה בתבנית 20 סמ , זה בסדר מבחינתי שתהיהי יותר נמוכה. יש עוגת פומדנט שאני מחפשת מתכון אליה כבר כמה שנים וחא מוצאת וזה נראה ממש דומה רק בלי השוקולד הלבן . אם את חושבת שזה מתאים לעוגה , לכמה זמן התנור ישתנה ? וטלי גם המעלות … תודה. זה נראה מושלם
