Friday Foodie Word ~ Paris-Brest

In honor of Comic Relief/Red Nose Day and The Great British Bake Off, I thought it fitting to use a word pertaining to baking and even one that was made on The GBBO….

Paris-Brest

Named after a famous 19th century bicycle race, this is a cake consisting of concentric baked rings of choux pastry, split in half and filled with whipped cream or crème pâtissière mixed with a fine praline and decorated with icing/powdered sugar and flaked almonds.

Should you care to indulge yourself with making this, here’s a recipe for you.

Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
