TWD: cherry-fudge torte

October 27, 2009

I would say that with this recipe, I was roughing it, but “roughing it” doesn’t usually involve mascarpone.  Me?  I was merely without a spring-form pan.

So I poured the batter in thoroughly greased muffin tins and baked away.  I had a little left over, so I poured it in a cake pan.  Unfortunately, there is definitely a reason to make this in a spring form pan–the cooked cake is quite delicate!  None of my little cupcakes came out whole!  Fortunately, the cake did survive!

I put a little less cream in mine because I wanted to make sure it stayed thick enough to spread on (ie no springform pan).

The resulting taste and texture I found quite delicious; however, I don’t think I will be making this one again until I have acquired the spring form pan.

If wanna give this one a try (it really is quite tasty), the recipe should be up on April’s blog Short + Rose sometime today.  Or, of course, you could refer to page 284 of BFMHTY.

    Your cake was delicate?! Mine was like a hunk of fudgey awesomeness – no falling apart there! But thinner cakes = less per slice = healthier, right? And scraps (or broken muffin pieces) don’t count either 🙂

    I agree thinner cake, smaller slices, less calories!

    I think the thin cake looks good. Less calories per slice is a good thing. 🙂

    Your cake looks nice, and I bet even the crumbled cupcakes tasted good. I broke down and bought mini springform pans for this recipe. I’m sure they’ll come in handy again soon.

    Your brownie cake looks so elegant on your cake platter! A brownie crumble sounds just as good too! =)

    Thank you so much for baking with me this week! I’m sorry your cupcakes didn’t turn out, but I bet the cake was really tasty!

    I didn’t get to make this one, but everyone said it was tasty.
