This week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection was made by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. She chose the French Yogurt Cake with a Marmalade Glaze. According to Dorie, it's the go-to cake for just about every occasion in France. She tells us that most of the French don't bake, but everyone can bake up this cake because it's so foolproof.
Well, I wasn't raised in France. And I've never even been there. Which clearly must explain why I wasn't blown away with the cake. Really though, it's not the recipe's fault. I did a few things wrong. Number one: I used a glass pan, which meant I should have lowered the oven temp. Did I? Nope. And as a result, the edges were a bit overbrowned. Number two: I discovered that I need new baking powder. My cake barely rose at all. Number three: My buttering-the-pan skills leave a little to be desired. The cake stuck to the insides of the pan.
The cake itself was pretty tasty and the marmalade glaze really added a great flavor. But regardless, I just wasn't loving it. That happens sometimes. So I probably won't make it again. But I'm pretty sure Dorie will not disappoint in the upcoming week's selections... she's good like that.
Thanks to Liliana for choosing this. It's another one I never would have made on my own, and I'm glad I gave it a try!
