How do you participate in Tuesdays with Dorie when: (1) you’ve been gone for almost two weeks, (2) you feel like a giant ball of fat because you’ve been eating hotel food during that time, and (3) you don’t have much time to bake because your family is out of clean underwear?
You improvise. Yes, you go to Trader Joe’s, pick up some lady fingers and mascarpone, and make one SMALL dessert. SMALL. So you don’t have an entire tiramisu cake around to tempt you, and add to the horror of looking at the bathroom scale. Okay, I only gained one two pounds on my trip, but at my age, while it took two weeks to put that on, it will take a month to take it off. Curses!
This week, Megan of My Baking Adventures chose Dorie Greenspan’s Tiramisu Cake on pages 266-268 from Baking: From My Home to Yours. The verdict? What’s not to like about tiramisu? Chocolate, coffee, mascarpone . . . . Oh, I’m soooooo glad I made one small dessert!
Now, check out what the other TWD bakers did this week!
