Moka Dupont

Tuesdays with Dorie
Baking Chez Moi
Moka Dupont is the French version of an American Ice Box Cake.
Dorie suggested serving with coffee ice cream but I had vanilla on hand which paired nicely with the chocolate.

Dorie states that in France the cake is made with The Brun cookies but they are not readily available in America. She suggested Petit Beurre which I could not find. My grocery store carried these Leibniz which worked out just fine but I don’t know if I am committing some mortal sin in France.

This cake could could not have been easier. Store bought cookies, dunked in coffee, layered with a buttercream frosting and topped with shaved chocolate. The buttercream was a little different in that the granulated sugar is not completely incorporated. It tasted grainy which Dorie says is normal. This frosting also calls for an uncooked egg so I used a pasteurized one for safety.

Everyone loved it especially with the ice cream. My son not one for compliments with my cooking said it was okay but then came back for a second piece later:) To see what others did this week visit the TWD blogroll.

    A nice touch with the ice cream. Easy dessert except shopping for the Brun cookies.
