#Reverb12 Day 15: What tingled my tastebuds

Day 15 Question:
What was the most extraordinary dish you sampled in 2012? What made it so magical? 
It needn't be the most extravagant dish, just the one that knocked your socks off with its flavour, texture, aroma, freshness, colour, significance, timing… whatever. Relive the magic and help us savour it with you here.

Back in early January my boys and I made a Fruit Pizza, it was very yummy.  This is the recipe: ( i made it without the thermomix as i do not own one :( )
The base is more like a pancake than a pizza crust, and needs to be cooked in a very hot oven so it puffs up.  Top your pizza with whatever fruit you like, and drizzle with either pure maple syrup for breakfast, or melted chocolate for a delicious dessert!  Makes two pizzas.

1.  Preheat oven to 230 degrees C (450 F) and melt butter or ghee in two 9-inch pie plates, then remove from oven:
- 2 Tblspns butter/ghee (1 for each pie plate)
(If you can't have butter or ghee, just grease pie plates with preferred oil.)
2.  Beat together in Thermomix on speed 5 for 20 seconds (or by hand):
- 6 eggs
- 250g rice-almond milk (or other milk)
- 100g plain spelt flour or gf flour (or use coconut flour or tapioca flour for a grain free option)
- 2 Tblspns Rapadura or 1 Tblspn honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

3.  Pour into greased pie plates and bake for 8 minutes.  Reduce heat to 190 degrees C (475 F) and bake about 8 minutes longer - until golden brown with puffy sides.

4.  Immediately top with sliced fruit, sprinkle with coconut (opt.) and drizzle with syrup (or chocolate), then slice and serve.
- 1 punnet strawberries, washed and sliced
- sliced bananas
- whatever other fruit you like (kiwi fruit, passionfruit, rockmelon, etc) - optional
- shredded coconut - optional
- pure maple syrup (or melted chocolate)

(Optional: If you like, you can top with a dollop of cashew cream - if you can handle dairy, you can use whipped cream or yoghurt.) (from Quirky cooking. I love her site she has loads of allergy friendly recipes)
