Angel Food Cake is one of my favorites because it’s so soft, airy, fluffy, and has a nice subtle sweetness to it. I found this recipe in the America’s Test Kitchen cookbook and decided to give it a try.
Betty’s Chocoholic Cake was the second Tuesdays with Dorie assignment for May. This is definitely a cake for chocolate lovers. Betty’s Chocoholic Cake is comprised of three layers of fudgy brownies that are held together with chocolate ganache, and then covered with more chocolate ganache before finally getting topped off with white chocolate shavings.
One of this month’s Tuesdays With Dorie assignments is the Tarte Tropézienne from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. It’s like a brioche cake with a delicious cream filling, and topped with pearl sugar. It sounds odd, but it’s really nom-worthy. This is supposed to be a beautiful cake, but mine turned out looking very “rustic.”
The Victoria Sponge is a classic British tea-time cake that is said to have been a favorite of Queen Victoria. I have seen a version of the Victoria Sponge Cake that has two layers of sponge cake that sandwich fresh whipped cream and jam, and another that uses fresh fruits instead of jam. Some recipes use raspberries […]
One of the recipes for the Tuesdays with Dorie group assigned for March is Odile’s Fresh Orange Cake. I decided to make that cake and also go one step further and try Dorie’s Bonne Idée and make a Poached Orange-Topped Cake. Odile’s Fresh Orange Cake tastes very un-American to me, because it’s not a very sweet […]
Soft-Centered Chocolate Teacup Cakes are Dorie Greenspan’s fancy title for Molten Lava Cakes. It also happens to be my Tuesdays with Dorie assignment for this week. These Soft-Centered Chocolate Teacup Cakes were easy to make (especially with a stand mixer) and they tasted delicious!
One option for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie assignment was the Fluted Carrot Tangerine Cake with Tangerine Glaze. This cake, as Dorie Greenspan describes it, is the lighter and fluffier version of its dense American counterpart.
The Perfect Party Cake recipe is one that I had flagged in my copy of Baking from My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan; it was one of the first recipes in this book that I made a “must make” note for. I know a lot of October babies, and this cake sounded like the perfect dessert […]
This recipe is one that was originally for cupcakes by Cupcake Jemma. Her Malteser Cupcakes looked so good I wanted to try it out as a full-size cake; I’m glad that I did because these it tasted great! So far, all of the recipes I tried from Cupcake Jemma’s YouTube channel and her cookbook have turned out […]
This Blueberry Crumble Cake recipe comes from Cupcake Jemma. This cake is definitely a winner; it’s moist, sweet (but not too sweet), tart (but not too tart), and has great crunchy texture (thanks to the streusel topping). This goes great with a cup of coffee and makes for a nice light breakfast treat. The best […]
