Tuesdays With Dorie – Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cake

Posted in food on June 29, 2010 by hoagiefest 2020

As a teetotaler, I hesitated at the idea of rum-drenched cake. I did cut back a bit on the rum in the recipe, and the cake is still delicious so there is that.

Bang, zoom, to the moon!

Tuesdays With Dorie – Dressy Chocolate Loafcake

Posted in food on June 22, 2010 by hoagiefest 2020

So it’s a chocolate cake in the shape of a loaf of bread, sandwiching cherry jam, and covered in a sour-cream-based chocolate icing. Mine doesn’t look dressy because I’m sloppy, lazy, and awful. But I made it, I ate some, and it was good.


Tuesdays With Dorie – Raisin Swirl Bread

Posted in food on June 15, 2010 by hoagiefest 2020

I’d say that given all the complications in making this bread, this didn’t turn out too badly. I froze the dough for a good forty-five minutes (that’s an extra fifteen minutes) and it still wasn’t solid enough to roll. As a result, I didn’t really end up with a Swirl Bread as much as I ended up with a CHUNK OF MISCELLANEOUS GARBAGE.

It tasted all right. Not my thing, but then raisin bread never is.

Tuesdays With Dorie – Tender Shortcakes

Posted in food on June 8, 2010 by hoagiefest 2020

I’m not 100% sure how these can be tender. It’s not a chunk of meat, and it’s not love for Elvis. It’s a cake.

It’s pretty good. As you can see, my sloppy presentation this week is related to cutting the cake in half. I filled it with raspberries and blueberries but you couldn’t really taste them between the buttery cake and the homemade whipped cream.

I decided to freeze the other eight and save them for rainy days. I hope it rains a lot soon.

Tuesdays With Dorie – White Chocolate Brownies

Posted in food on June 1, 2010 by hoagiefest 2020

These are not brownies, right? There’s no chocolate (white chocolate is not chocolate). The consistency and flavor of this lean more towards a “white chocolate razzleberry cake,” so that’s what I’ll call this.

Still super-delicious. I would recommend bringing this to a picnic or funeral.
