I haven't been a part of Tuesdays With Dorie for very long, and I've only had the book since i joined the group. I have always thought the cake on the cover looks fantastic, and I couldn't wait to make it.
Well thankfully i don't have to wait anymore as Stephanie from Confessions of a City Eater picked it for this weeks challenge. Hurrah!
I had thought of halving the recipe and using my 4 inch springform pans, again, but decided to make the full recipe. I still used the 4 inch pans and made cupcakes with the leftover batter. The only change i made to the recipe was to add white chocolate chips at the end instead of milk chocolate.
This has been a good week for me, bakingwise. The cake and the icing came out beautifully. It looks and tastes fantastic. The only thing i don't really like is the slight metallic aftertaste from the icing, but has that stopped me eating it......No!
So thank you Stephanie for this weeks pick, great choice :)
Oh and thanks are also due to my husband, Eric, who took the photos.
