How could you not love this wonderful word?
1) it simply rolls off the tongue like sweet honey;
2) it is a little cake whose shape resembles a cork (bouchon in French); and
3) a French cork comes from a bottle of French wine....need I say more?
These little bouchons may not follow a traditional French recipe as they contain no wheat, gluten or fructose, but by George they are delicious. They're light, soft and delicate in texture and subtle with a slight sweetness in taste.
I've eaten them on their own, warm with butter, and also dipped in some creamy pumpkin soup.
Again, need I say more ......
