Okay, this post is going to encompass last weeks recipe Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes and this weeks recipe Tarte Noire.
Wendy of Pink Stripes chose Dorie’s Rum-Drenched Vanilla Cakes which are located on pages 226-227 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. For this recipe, I only made half and made them into cupcakes. Which worked out to exactly 12 muffins. I actually really enjoyed these muffins. They were soft and moist, and with the rum syrup they actually had the flavor of tres leches cake. One night, I split a muffin opened and top it with sweetened ricotta cheese, peaches, and raspberries. It was fantastic 🙂
Dharmagirl of bliss: towards a delicious life chose Dorie’s Tarte Noire which is located on page 351 in Baking: From My Home to yours. I had some luck with this recipe because I had 1/2 a recipe of Sweet Tart Dough hanging out in my freezer, so I had one less thing to do 🙂 I decided to pop out 1/2 a recipe in small tart form, which came out to 4 tarts. The flavor on these was great, and the ganache was smooth and just all around perfect.
