This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie is brought to you by April of Short + Rose. She chose Dorie’s Cherry-Fudge Brownie Torte which is located on pages 284-285 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. I have been very intrigued by this recipe because Dorie based it off of a Black Forest Cake with a TWIST. For this recipe, I decided to divide it in half and bake it in a 6 x 2 inch round pan. It baked up perfectly, and then I discovered (after it was almost cool) that the inside wasn’t completely done so I had to put it back in the oven for 15 more minutes.
I decided to use rum instead of kirsch since I had rum on hand and didn’t feel like buying a 750 ml of Kirsch because the liquor store didn’t carry airplane bottles of it 😦 I was hoping to finish this recipe in time to take it to my Nanny and PaPa’s but with having to bake it again it threw off my whole planning schedule. While I was making this I was also putting together a birthday cake and doing my Daring Bakers’ Challenge. Can you say procrastinator?
This turned out pretty good. I liked the flavor, however, it is rich so I can only have it is small doses. I have no idea what to do with it now because I currently have no one to give it away to now.
