Okay, Tuesdays with Dorie fans...here is this weeks post. It was a lovely cake called French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze (we aren't marmalade lovers so I skipped that part). The description of this cake stated that it was fool proof and that ever woman in france makes this common cake.
This cake was a delight to make. It was super easy and quite delicious. The lemon zest added to the cake was refreshing. The cake called for ground almonds which made for a speckled batter.
I served the cake for Sunday dessert which meant that I didn't get any pictures of it sliced and with the goodies on top because of lighting and we finished the cake off before morning pictures could be taken. I skipped the lemon marmalade and served it with whipped cream and raspberry sauce. I considered making a lemon syrup, but I didn't have enough fresh lemon juice. It was delicious with the sweetened whipped cream and raspberries, but I might try fresh strawberries next time. I also think it would be good with chocolate mousse and fresh strawberries. All in all it is a great basic cake that you could change up fillings or toppings, especially if you baked it in a round pan. Others who made this dessert suggested using a lemon curd which I think would be fabulous.
