TWD: FRENCH STRAWVBERRY CAKE

on June 19, 2012

The making of this recipe began with taking my kids (ages 2 and 4) to go strawberry picking.  Boy was that something!  my daughter (the 2 year old) couldn’t stop eating the strawberries!  Her face and hands were covered in red strawberry juice!

This week’s recipe is hosted by Sophia of Sophia’s Sweets and Allison of Sleep Love Think Dine.

All in all, I think the recipe was just okay.  It was a struggle to start with since my oven is broken, it is not maintaining temperature.  Fluctuating up to about 100 degress.  So it was a delicate balance of adjusting the set temperature every 5 minutes.  I found the cake itself to be dry.  Although I hear that it is supposed to be that way, I didn’t care for it. The strawberry was delicious, and so was the whipped icing.  When I served it, some people felt the same as me, and others enjoyed.  So I guess it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

    I’m with you on this one. Loved the berries and the frosting; it was just the cake itself that I wasn’t crazy about. Oh well, on to hazelnut biscotti….or in our case almond biscotti. (husband doesn’t like hazelnuts.)

    It sounds like you started out on the right foot 🙂
    The broken oven must be a trial – that’s quite a hurdle to overcome. Bravo for forging ahead.
