More Like MarjoLAME
This week I tried to make a Marjolaine, using Mary Berry’s recipe from GBBO.
I use the word tried, because it was not my finest bake. In fact, I really don’t want to show you this one.
I followed the recipe, but seemed to fall flat at the easiest hurdle. The Dacoise.
It looked lovely…. until I tried to remove it from the baking trays, where it proceeded to fall to pieces, much like I did.
After I finished having a little cry, I tried to piece it together as best I could…
It wasn’t great.
I was trying to asseble the top layer to then add the decorations, when it completed disintergrated, leaving me with nothing to use for the top layer.
So here we have a deconstructed Marjolaine, with no top… whoops.
But it tastes bloody lovely!
Perhaps I’m not cut out for GBBO after all.
