One of the Tuesdays with Dorie recipes for this month is the Limoncello Cupcakes recipe in Baking Chez Moi. Coincidentally, I had a lot of lemons to use, but ironically, there was only a need for one lemon… The Limoncello gives these cupcakes most of its flavor.
This was one of the first recipes I tried out when Baking Chez Moi was released. Here is a link to that post with my process photos. The caramelized Rice Krispies are outstanding!
I had just ordered a blowtorch and really wanted to try it out. I thought a lemon meringue pie would be the perfect recipe to use it on. Luckily, there is a recipe in Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan that includes a recipe that was exactly what I was looking for: Lemon Meringue Tart, A […]
I made these Cocoa Almond Meringues after seeing a picture of the ones in Dorie’s book, Baking From My Home to Yours. Her pictures featured these crinkled meringues that I could just taste in my mind, if that makes any sense. I had all of the ingredients anyway, so I figured I should make some […]
It’s a little bit of a late post, but I made this Fresh Strawberry Pie for pi day (3.14.15). I had 3 baskets of strawberries in my refrigerator that I had to re-purpose, so I figured this would be a great way to use them. The only baking required for this recipe is really the […]
I know I just made a chocolate cake, but I wanted something that was a tiny bit sweeter and fluffier. I decided to try my hand at a Chocolate Dobash Cake, Hawaii style. It has layers of cake and pudding-like frosting that is light and delicious!
Another first, thanks to Dorie. This time it was making Madeleines. I had seen these in Parisian stores, but I didn’t think of buying them because I was too busy looking for macarons. These little cakes are pretty good; they were soft, moist, and lemony.
I felt like I needed to take a break from making cookies and realized that I don’t have a good chocolate cake recipe at hand. There are thousands of search results on the internet for chocolate cakes, but my colleague forwarded this Chocolate Layer Cake recipe to me, and naturally I wanted to try it […]
When I saw that the Pink Grapefruit Tart was one of the assignments for Tuesdays With Dorie, I thought I would sit this one out. It seemed like a complicated recipe and I was not a huge fan of grapefruit. I thought it over for half the month and decided that I should give it […]
I was asked to make a Galette des Rois with a request to make it not taste like almonds. Luckily, Dorie has a recipe in Baking Chez Moi for a Galette des Rois which includes either lemon or orange zest. I thought that using orange zest would make a tasty Galette, but later I decided that […]
