Today's Tuesday with Dorie was chosen by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction- her choice was French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze on pages 224-225. I didn't have the marmalade, but I had some POM Wonderful that had been sent to me to try out and I had been dying to figure out how to use it (other than a pork chop recipe that I will be posting very soon!). The cake was only ok to me, but Grumpy seemed to really like it (meaning he has been helping himself to the cake! lol)
Other than the glaze, the only ingredient I used different was pecan meal instead of almonds (because that is what I had). Although it wasn't my favorite cake, it wasn't terrible. The cake alone was pretty sweet to me and so my addition of a thick sweet frosting wasn't my cup of tea - but the frosting would certainly go great on perhaps a chocolate bundt cake!

The recipe for the glaze (for those interested!)
POM Wonderful Cake Glaze
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup POM Wonderful juice
Approximately 2 cups of confectioner's sugar
Stir together butter and POM juice. Add confectioner's sugar and mix well. Add more sugar or POM to obtain consistency desired.
Its that easy!
In my title I mentioned the Spelling Bee! I have had my cousin Ryan's blog on the sidebar since his tour began and today is the day I get to see him in his show! I'm really excited because not only am I going to get to see Ryan perform, but I am also going to get to meet Linda, of the Weekend Cook who is also going to the show! Hopefully I'll have some great photos to show you all after the show!
