TCS ~ January ~ Tiramisu Cake

TCS short for (The Cake Slice (blogroll go HERE)  made Tiramisu Cake for January 2012
from
 Baking from:\
Tish Boyle's The Cake Book
 


 Below:  mmmph! now what was I to do with the melted butter again??!!
 Well, looks like no harm done cos the genoise sponge kept on rising!
 For the recipe and more step-by-step pictures go visit my fellow TCS baker Anabel at Oven Delights
 Below: as you can see the sponge layers needed more coffee syrup!
but otherwise they are super soft and tasted okay even if I had forgotten the melted butter bit.... ;)
A whole load of washing up to do for this cake!
Above: 1st slice after breakkie sharing with DH who said "just a mouthful" he ended up eating half the portion!

  1. Wait, so you forgot to add the butter to the batter? Haha, I'm sorry, but that's kind of funny :P I'm glad your cake worked out well though!

  2. Hi Becca,

    I found forgotten ingredients a couple of times while cleaning up or immediately putting the pan in the oven.... hahahaha! blame it on old age!

  3. Emily, I messed up the butter step too! I ended up just pouring it directly into the batter, I think thats what deflated the batter slightly, and why my cake did not rise enough. You know I think I'm going to completely skip the butter next time! I made ladyfingers a few weeks ago and the ingredients are exactly the same as the Genoise minus the butter. I'm sure the cake was delicious! Thank you for forgeting the butter in your recipe, I will definately try that next time :)

  4. That is just stunning and it looks delish! I know, the butter really did have to sit there forever, didn't it?

  6. Yours is simply beautiful. I added the butter and it almost sank to the bottom of each pan, making my cakes rubbery....maybe your mistake was a blessing!

  7. Doesn't look like it suffered from lack of butter! Looks fabulous, well done.
