Mokatines

These lovely Mokatines are made with a genoise sponge which is made by melting the butter which is then set to one side to cool slightly.  The eggs and sugar are whisked until the mixture is pale and mousse like.  The flour is then folded into the egg mixture and the cooled butter is folded into the mixture and the sponge is then baked for about 35 minutes.

Genoise sponge is thought to be lighter and more flavourful than a traditional sponge

I had great fun decorating the mokatines with cream using cocoa and coffee flavours and  to finish off some nuts and obviously the eating was even more fun
