**********
*The kitchen at the club had A.P. and Cake flours. When a recipe called for pastry flour we did a 50/50 ratio of A.P. and Cake.
**Instead of vanilla extract, vanilla bean paste was used. It provided great vanilla flavor while also giving products the genuine look of vanilla with the specks of bean.

I preferred using lemon juice to corn syrup in combating crystallization; I found it worked well without an added sweetness.
*********
While waiting for sugar, chop butter into small chunks.
In large Hobart bowl have whites ready, whipping on speed 2 when sugar reaches 215 degrees. When sugar reaches 230 degrees, move to speed 3.
At 240, stream sugar into whites as whipping, along side of bowl.

Add chunks of butter slowly as whipping. Will separate but come back together.
Continue whipping until light and fluffy. Add vanilla to taste, about 1/2 oz for this recipe.

Cherry Clafoutis
10 cherries in each ramekin
120 g AP flour
4 pinches of salt
16 eggs
1000 ml milk
240 g sugar

whisk eggs, milk, and salt
whisk in flour. Batter will be very liquid.
Pour into ramekins and bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes.
*********
The first time I made this I was on my own and was not sure how the batter was supposed to be or the color and consistency I was looking for in the end product. I found the batter to be lumpy unless you whipped it using the kitchen aid mixer. It turned out I over baked the first batch; they should be just set in the middle and a golden yellow; mine were too dark. The cherries add moisture to the custard so it appears less set than it really is.

Upon Chef Good’s suggestion I will add chopped dried cherries and less chocolate chips the next time I make these cookies.
Brownies-
Mistakes- Next time I need to spray the parchment and pan, or brush with butter before baking.
-Make either a double recipe for a full sheet pan or a full recipe for a half sheet pan
-Don’t put ganache on top- it cracked off
-Don’t put in the cooler unwrapped
***********
Saturday 6/27
Clafoutis- got too dark. Bake a little less or put sheet pan on top to stop further browning.

-Un box pies and bake
-Dip mini ├ęclairs in ganache and drizzle with white chocolate ganache
-decorate key lime pies, oreo pies, plate lemon squares, fruit tarts, and ├ęclairs
**********-
unmold all chocolate mousse cakes in freezer- let float in big bowl of hot water for 20 seconds then flip upside down over cake board and quickly rotate so cake slides out of pan. Flip over onto another cake board so is right side up. Leave 3 in the cooler and wrap remaining three for freezer.
*********
-Plate one blue plate of cookies and have one of each fruit pie ready for buffet
-Take out 2 lemon chiffon cakes from freezer for Sunday buffets

This was my first Sunday and the first time I would be working all day on my own.
