Tuesdays with Dorie - French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze

This week's recipe was French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze, chosen by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. Thank goodness I'm baking again, lol. It was quick and easy to mix together. I chose to use flour instead of ground almonds, although I would like to try it with the almonds at some point. It made a moist, tasty cake, with the lemon adding a very nice flavor. It would be a perfect loaf cake to make to share with good friends...and I had wonderful company today while baking (thank you Christi!!). We forgot to take a picture of it before we cut into it, but that's okay! I couldn't find the lemon marmalade to make the glaze, so my cake went glaze-less, but it was still wonderful! The crust had a nice crispness to it when it was freshly baked, and we both liked that part. :)

Check out what the other TWD Bakers did with this recipe, as there were several "playing around" variations listed with the recipe.

Your cake looks good! I urge you to try the almonds.. it gave my cake an awesome taste. You're right though.. without any glaze it still tastes great with the lemon flavor. I'm glad you made it!

Great job - your cake looks perfect! I skipped the almonds too. This is a great recipe.

I made it with all flour and no glaze, too. That lemon marmalade is tough to find!

Thick and Chewy Snickerdoodles

I admit, I love snickerdoodles.   Cinnamon and vanilla?   Yes, please.   What’s funny is that I never really had them much as a kid, just occasionally in the school cafeteria.   I know, ew. Anyway, snickerdoodles were one of the first cookies that the Munchkin helped make when he was little.   He could help dump everything in the mixer (or “loud noise” as he would call it!) and then it was fun for him to roll the balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar before putting them on the baking sheet. Even since then, my go-to recipe for snickerdoodles has been this one by Emeril.   It’s a great recipe, baking up a thin, crispy cookie (at least when I make them!).   However, I was looking for something different this time, something thicker and chewier.   I found this recipe from the blog How Sweet it Is .   I decided to try it, and while I did keep the ingredient list the same I changed up the method a bit to suit me better.   The result?   What I was looking for – thick and

Homemade Cinnamon Dolce Latte

I recently professed my love of coffee and fancy coffee drinks.  After the success of the Peppermint Mocha , I decided to tackle the Cinnamon Dolce Latte, another one of my favorites.  According to the Starbucks website, it has flavors of "cinnamon, butter and brown sugar".  Well, I covered the cinnamon and brown sugar components, but left out the butter.  And you know what, I think it turned out quite well, if I do say so myself!  I honestly wasn't sure if the cinnamon flavor in the syrup was going to be strong enough, but it was.  I will admit to being impatient and not letting it steep for very long, so the cinnamon flavor might develop more if you do actually let it sit and cool off first.  If you wanted it to be even stronger, you could always add a tiny bit of cinnamon oil to it as well.  But be careful -- a little of that goes a long way! How much to make depends on how much you'll actually use.  I just made a single batch this first time, but considering

Hello Dolly Cookie Bars

Several years ago, my mom gave me an old cookbook, it was hers but I'm not sure she ever used it, Favorite Recipes from Southern Kitchens:  Desserts .  I love this cookbook!  I thought it would be great to go through it and pick a recipe or two to use for this year's 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats series.  For this week, I chose a super easy one, Hello Dolly Cookies.  I have absolutely no idea where the name came from.  I'm really not sure I've ever eaten one before, though the ladies I shared the finished product with knew about them!  I did an internet search too, and it seems they go by a lot of names, including Magic Layer Bars.  Honestly, they are so easy to make.  There's no mixing required.  Kids could absolutely help with these.  The cookies smelled divine while they were baking, and I barely waited for them to cool before trying one. At first I thought "these taste almost like German chocolate cake", then "or definitely like a ca
