TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie

Make-Up Day

The beginning of 2013 was a bit crazy for me, so I have quite a bit of make-up to do.  There were some recipes I made, but didn’t get a post up in time.  Here are 5 of the missed recipes, with a brief over view.  I still have 6 more recipes to go before I am fully caught up.

Focaccia, from February:

This recipe was pretty good, but I had trouble getting and keeping it soft after baking.  This is not the first time I’ve had this problem when baking focaccia.  I think I need to apply more olive oil to the top prior to baking.  The flavor was excellent.

Madeleines, from April:

These were okay, but my oven was a bit too hot, even though it was at the temperature noted in the recipe.  Next time I will turn the temperature down.  I also tried to make minis, but didn’t take them out soon enough.  They were edible, but very dry.

Fresh Rhubarb Upside-Down Baby Cakes, from May:

This is one of my favorite recipes so far in this book.  I made one large cake.  The rhubarb topping helped keep the cake moist and offer a nice tart counterpoint to the sweet cake.

Cheese and Tomato Galette, from June:

I really enjoyed this recipe as well.  Super easy to make, with great flavor.

Baked Yogurt Tart, from July:

This is another favorite recipe of ours from this book.  I did add a bit of lemon zest to the yogurt filling.  I love you can vary it with the seasons by changing the fruit.  I’m interested in trying persimmon.

To get the recipes check out the book Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.
