The first recipe I made was Donna of My Tasty Treasures Oreos ‘n Cream Cake. Grumpy loves Oreos, especially with a glass of milk. 🙂 As a matter of fact, when I bought the Oreo’s I had to buy two packages. One for Grumpy and one for the cake. 😉 This cake was dangerous. To our waistlines that is, but it was awesome! Grumpy said that it was a good thing he had to go to classes the next day or he would have been eating it all day long! (Donna’s writing style is pretty unique and she has gotten a lot of slack for her choice of how she writes. If you are easily offended, her site may not be for you. That said, she has a multitude of recipes that are fabulous so if you go there with an open mind, you will see that she is an awesome cook with a lot of great recipes!)
The other recipe I knew he would choose. Why? Because he loves white chocolate. No if’s, ands, or buts about it….and it was the only recipe that contained white chocolate! Grumpy chose Marthe of Culinary Delights Strawberry and White Chocolate Tiramisu.
I could not find ladyfingers anywhere in my area. So, I did the next best thing. I made them! I found the recipe on The Joy of Baking. You can view the recipe by clicking HERE. These were very easy to make! I also found no strawberries on the shelves the day I went shopping – but they has some large, yummy looking raspberries (Grumpy’s favorite!) and used them instead. Because Marthe sent the recipe via email I am including it below as I don’t believe it is on her blog.
Thank you to both Marthe and Donna! We enjoyed both recipes. We decided that both Marthe and Donna were winners and have had the cookbook Maida Heatter’s Book of Great Chocolate Desserts on its way to them.
