Tuesdays With Dorie: Perfect Party Cake

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

I made this cake a month ago. I was so proud of myself — I was ahead for once; I could write the post at my leisure, and just hit Publish when it was time. But I neglected to actually write the damn thing, or process the photos. I had a month. Anyway, now it’s […]

Daring Bakers: Bakewell Tart!

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

The June Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Jasmine of Confessions of a Cardamom Addict and Annemarie of Ambrosia and Nectar. They chose a Traditional (UK) Bakewell Tart… er… pudding that was inspired by a rich baking history dating back to the 1800′s in England.

Tuesdays With Dorie: Coconut-Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

This week’s TWD recipe, chosen for us by Tommi of Brown Interior, was Honey-Peach Ice Cream. Yum. Unfortunately, it’s about a month too early for local peaches here in the lovely mid-Atlantic, so I had to buy some California imports at Whole Foods. They were not Jersey peaches, let me tell you. I cut up […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Parisian Apple Tartlet

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

I forgot to buy puff pastry at the good grocery store. They didn’t have any at the bad grocery store. We didn’t have any yummy Parisian Apple Tartlets. But I guarantee you that there will be some amazing ones at the other TWD blogs, and Jessica of My Baking Heart will have the recipe. I’ll […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Cinnamon Squares (Rounds?)

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

I have been waiting for someone to choose this recipe for Tuesdays With Dorie since the day I bought the book. This cake — cinnamon-flavored batter with a vein of chocolate and cinnamon-sugar, topped with a pure chocolate frosting — sounded like everything a cake should be, and I wanted it. I got it. I […]
