I hope everyone had a great holiday season. It's good to be back at Mimi's Kitchen. This month I decided that I would do with Tuesdays with Dorie as I have done with French Fridays, and do a monthly round of the recipes I made. The round up is a nice way to showcase the recipes in the book and I will most likely continue this way for the two baking groups.
First, Hindy of Bubie’s Little Baker chose Translucent Maple Tuiles,
These cute little cookie/candy treats are so easy to make but we thought they were more of a granish than a stand alone treat. We enjoyed their maple brown sugar flavor, but felt they really need some mousse or a flan to go along with them.
Next, Amber of Cobbler du Monde chose Apple-Coconut Family Cake
This was a nice moist cake with plenty of apples. Because we are split on the coconut issue, I added coconut to only half of the cake, but even my coconut lovers did not like the coconut in this cake. They thought it was a distracting texture, and preferred just the rum-laced apple flavor of the plain side.
Jill of Jill’s Blog chose Cardamom Crumb Cake
This is a nice tender coffee cake. I baked it in the 8 inch pan as directed, but as you can see from the depth of the cake it really would have been better in a 9 inch pan.
December 28 – Rewind! We took a breather, since we have way too many baked goods crowding our kitchen.
