Making a cake or pie with fruit juices?

got some extra pineapple and some pear juice. I wanted to make somethign w/o the fruit chunks but with the juice alone. Using sugar, flour, milk etc of course. You know I thought there was like broken glass cake or something like that out there but I didnt find it in a quick search. Can you make like a flan or somethign out of these? tx

Hmmm, I think it might be tough to do with pineapple juice. I would maybe look at adding it to a cake instead of water.

Could I not do like the recipe for Key Lime pie and just use like pineapple juice?

Is there a recipe for broken glass cake? What about like Zabaglione, that stuff from Italy?

Hmm. The possibilities, I made pumpkin cheesecake last night, its pretty good.

The recipe I use for Zabiglione is usually...

1 cup sugar (this is a lot -- it sweetens some mascarpone, though)
5 egg yolks
1/2 cup Marsala wine

Whisk all together over a double boiler/on very low heat until fluffy, etc... (those instructions aren't very detailed -- you can probably find better ones.

You could definitely sub the juice for the wine, just reduce the sugar. You could then drizzle over berries and chill, or you could fold in whipped cream and just have that. Sounds good!

Key lime pie is made with key lime juice, and zest, eggs, sugar, and a pie crust. It's basically a baked custard in a crust. It's similar to lemon curd, but stiffer.

Pear, pineapple, apple, jsut about any fruit juice would work, I think. However, if you used orange juice, it would have to be pulp-free. Just remember to make the liquid strong as it will be diluted by the egg.

Yes, and fruit juices are wonderful when mixed with unflavored gelatine, and then poured over a cake and chilled. Surprisingly, the gelatine won't set, but adds its fruity flavor and exceptional moisture to the cake. The cake must be chilled for a couple hours before serving. Hint: This also works with crushed fruit that's been blended with sugar.

Another idea you can use is to use the fruit juice to mix with crustless bread, or pound or short cake to make a pudding. The mixture must be wet enough to soften the bread, but not so much so as to make it liquid.

Just a few ideas for you from ol' G.W.
