Tuesdays With Dorie: Flip-Over Plum Cake September 27, 2011

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie was chosen by Becky of Project Domestication.  She picked Dorie’s Flip-Over Plum Cake, which is located on page 42 in Baking: From My Home To Yours.

This recipe is just like a cobbler recipe that one of my friends from college, Kim, use to make.  It was her grandmother recipes and we would just add berries instead of the plums.  It tastes exactly the same, and it is one of the quickest recipes that you will ever put together.  Best thing about this recipe is that it is so simple to make Vegan because there is no eggs, and you just substitute Earth Balance for the butter.

Dorie was right when she said that if you eat it after it has cooled a little then the fruit that has sunk to the bottom and baked in with the batter is like that of a pudding (so yummy).  But is you let it cool and serve the next day it is just as good.   This would be very good warm with vanilla ice cream over the top 🙂

Back in college my friend Dancer made this yummy cobbler thing for dessert for one of our Sunday Suppers. Usually when someone says cobbler to me I think of something similar to a pie with just one crust on top. I guess that comes from how I grew up and what we made. Well come to find out there are many different types of cobblers: brown betty, grunts, crumbles, crisps, and the buckle. This happens to be something close to that of a buckle. (more…)

I am so excited.

This is my first Tuesdays with Dorie entry. This weeks recipe was chosen by Amanda from Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake is a Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler, page 415 in Dori Greenspan’s book Baking: From My Home to Yours . My first thought was interesting, I have rhubarb in my freezer that I sliced up and froze a couple of months ago. My next thought was, I have really never liked cherry cobbler or anything cherry flavored. I guess it stems from being feed cherry flavored cough syrup as a kid. Also, I think the only cherry pies I have ever had were made with cherry pie filling, and I do not like cherry pie filling from a can. But I say to myself, what the hell someone will eat it 🙂 (more…)

I had yesterday all planned out.

08:00 wake up and make a peach and raspberry cobbler

09:00 run to the grocery store to get a few items that I needed for baking later in the week

10:00 bake more zucchini bread and the spicy avocado and bean salad – which I will post later in the week

Of course my butt was behind by an hour all day. I also wanted to do some laundry but that went out the window. I actually didn’t get up on time. I continued to hit snooze like I usually do and when I woke up it was 9am…CRAP. I laid in bed with my two little monsters and they looked so adorable. My oldest was sleeping on a stack of pillows and my youngest was chilling at the bottom of the bed. I wish I could have taken a picture but by the time I would have gotten up to grab the camera they would have been attacking each other in the living room. (more…)
