Tuesdays With Dorie – Cherry Fudge Brownie Torte

Posted in food on October 27, 2009 by hoagiefest 2020


I don’t know how you people make these things look nice, but this was the best picture out of a whole roll of photographs.

This is really very good.

I spent forty minutes in a liquor store looking for Kirsch, only to be told that it was “delisted,” and none would be available in the area. Luckily I had rum from a previous recipe, and since as far as I know they taste exactly the same, that was used instead. I think the important part is, it burned very well. I like recipes that call for alcohol, because it usually means I get to set something on fire at some point.

The key word in the name of the recipe is “fudge.” It’s very rich, and I’ll probably cut my serving size in half for future enjoyment.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Sweet Potato Biscuits

These were scrumptious. They were fairly quick and fairly messy (just the way I like it).

They don’t hold a candle to buttermilk biscuits, but they’re a delightful treat on their own.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Allspice Crumb Muffins

Something weird happened with these muffins.

They spread really thin, so they’re pretty horrible looking. They taste good enough, though, for sure. Right up my alley.

Vanilla pudding with ganache underneath it. It’s good. Nothing else for today, thanks.
