Brown Lake

Brown Lake is a 7 minute drive from the township of Dunwich. It is a perched fresh water lake, so named due the tannin from the surrounding paperbark trees turning the colour of the water to brown.

More about the geography and ecology of Brown Lake, how it was formed.

  1. Mix together the espresso, rum, and cognac. The mixture should taste strongly of alcohol. If not, add more until it does. (That flavor will tone down when mixed with the other ingredients, but feel free to adjust to taste.)
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, or by hand, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they begin to get stiff. Beat in half of the sugar until stiff. Scrape the egg whites into a small bowl.
  3. In the same bowl, beat the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until stiff and light-colored, about three minutes. (If using a standing electric mixer, you may need to stop and scrape down the sides.) By hand, beat in the mascarpone with a spatula or whisk, until lump-free.
  4. Fold in half of the beaten egg whites, then the remaining half, just until fully incorporated.
  5. Put a splat, a heaping soup spoon, of the mascarpone cream into each vessel.
  6. Submerge each ladyfinger in the espresso mixture for 5-10 seconds, until completely, utterly soaked. (Dried ladyfingers will take longer to saturate than softer ones.) Break the ladyfinger in half to be sure; they should be dropping wet, and can’t be saturated enough. Then layer them over the mascarpone cream in each vessel. Use two ladyfingers per.
  7. Grate a generous amount of chocolate over each.
  8. Top with remaining mascarpone cream, cover, and refrigerate at least four hours, but preferably overnight.
  9. Right before serving, shake powdered cocoa generously on top.

This is where we write how it is a popular place for swimming, picnics & BBQs, but no camping is allowed. And you can’t bring your dog either.

  2. If you want to read, I might suggest a good book, perhaps Hemingway or Melville. That’s why they call it, the dummy copy. This, of course, is not the real copy for this entry. Rest assured, the words will expand the concept. With clarity. Conviction. And a little wit.
