We Are Afflicted In Every Way

I never know baking tuiles can be such nerve wrecking.  There is no time to lose, Speed is the word..

Bake - 7-8 minutes in 180C oven

Assembly - roll or shape while still hot

Serve -  immediately

A successfully baked tuile breaks easily but rest assured nothing is wasted here because every crumbs is swiftly disposed of into this baker's tummy. These tuile crumbs are so delicious and additive.. 

This recipe is from The Chocolate Book. I cut a 6 inch circle drawn on a clear file as template. This half recipe makes  two 6 inch circle, and 3 scrolls, of which only 1 circle and 1 scroll survived the rolling and shaping.   It was quite a feat to roll and shape these delicate tuiles into scrolls and bowls!

  • Using a hand mixer, cream butter,sugar and vanilla to a paste.

  • Keep stirring while you gradually add the egg whites.

  • Continue to add the flour and cocoa in small batches and mix till batter is smooth.

  • wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  • Line a baking sheet and place a stencil on the baking sheet. Spread batter with an offset spatula.
  • Remove template and bake for 8 minutes.

  • Remove tuile from baking sheet, roll or shape immediately.

  3. Hi Lian,
    Baking tuiles is a challenge indeed! But I sure am glad that you have given it a try. It is so crispy and yummy, that I think it is worth the effort. Next time, I'll just leave them flat, if I'm feeling lazy! Your choc tuiles bowl looks wonderful, this is a bowl that I would gladly nibble on!
