I also should have made sure to whisk it more then I did because I ended up with a few clumps. I enjoyed that part but I don’t think that everyone would. The final tribulation I had was in making the caramel. I should have added a little more sugar. The recipe says to wait until the sugar/water mix turns amber. I waited almost 10 minutes and it never got amber, only a slight brown tint. I gave up at that point and poured it into the baking dish.
Ooops …not enough stirring
Overall I was happy with how it turned out. It was tasty and an interesting different dessert. It’s also pretty impressive and doesn’t require a whole lot of work. Raisins are not my favorite fruit but I’m imagining this cake with chopped up dates and maybe even some chopped almonds mixed in with it.
This is just begging to be eaten
It took me a little while to figure out a strategy for cooking and posting a new recipe from this cookbook once a week, but now I really look forward to it. I’m very excited to see what the new recipes are for next month. Part of participating in this cooking club is that none of the complete recipes are posted, but if you would like them, a great cookbook to pick up is this one! Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours from Dorie Greenspan. I know Border’s had a great coupon this weekend and you can pick it up for $25.64 at Amazon (just follow the link!). That’s a fantastic price and well worth it for this hefty cookbook full of great French recipes. Check out some of the other great food bloggers who are participating here
