TCS ~ First cake from new book...

It is a new bake year for The Cake Slice Bakers
and we are keeping the option of
having four cake choices each month to bake!
An excellent concept - this way we get to
showcase more cakes from each book!

my cake choice:
orange spice pecan cake
this is the second time I made this cake
first cake was burnt
second cake faired slightly better
should just sprinkle the crushed pecans on top of the batter
instead of lining the bottom of the pan..
half the recipe
half the sugar

FFwD ~ Non-Jerusalem artichokes soup, make up instead

The Doristas made this way back in December 2010
you can make smooth or chunky
serve it warm, hot or chilled
 
I left mine chunky and served it warm
and followed up with
(a yet to be made by the Doristas)
spiced crusted salmon
which I love and made it quite often!
  
that beetroot pasta looks awesome, don't you agree with me?

FFwD ~ Happy Birthday Dorie!

To celebrate the trifecta of Dorie’s birthday, the new book launch, and the 4th anniversary of French Fridays, Doristas are choosing to make one of the following recipes from Baking Chez Moi this week.
and here are my two bakes!
Palets des Dames, Lille Style
and Canelles
 
 
 
I forgot to reduce the quantity of sugars for both
hence they were perfect paired with Ginger Tea!

late night baking...
 by the way...
metal pans give way better results!
 using madeleine and mini tea cake pans
beautiful and crunchy exterior and tender interiors!
