TWD - Far Breton, Honey Nut Scones, A Fig Cake for Fall
But first, last week's recipe was A Fig Cake For Fall. This is a lovely and not-too-sweet cake made with cornmeal. I think a finer grain of cornmeal than the one I used would have prevented it from drying out the next day. Instead of figs, I stewed Italian plums in port. They were delicious and provided a great syrup. It was chosen by Alvarosa of the blog Cookie Rookie.
The Whimsical Cupcake.
To me it tasted like a pecan pie but with eggy custard where there should be treacle. My tastebuds were confused and not satisfied, but the family loved it.
Try it for yourself. The recipe is at Nicole's blog Cookies on Friday.
