Tuesdays and cake and Dorie Greenspan

It’s Monday and as I write this post I am not sure what things will be like for me after today with my blogging. I’m not sure how I will feel or how soon I will get back into the swing of things after Tuesday – which is the day of my surgery. This could be my last Tuesday with Dorie post for a few weeks. A lot will depend on my recovery.

The pick this week was made by Sihan of Befuddlement and the pick was Blueberry Crumb Cake on pages 192-193 of Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From my home to yours cookbook. You can view the recipe by checking out Sihan’s blog.

What to say about this recipe? Well, first of all, I didn’t use blueberries. I decided on Raspberries since I had recently made a blueberry coffeecake. My thoughts about this was that it turned out beautiful, had great crumb, was moist….but I just didn’t care for the flavor. Neither did Grumpy….so everyone at work benefited – and the consensus there was that it was great. Guess it was just Grumpy and myself who didn’t care fo it. We liked the last coffeecake I made better.

    Sorry if guys didnt like it mine was a bit dry I think from the lack of fruit in mine.

    I hope everything works out for you and your back on your feet soon.
