This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie pick was GRRRRREAT!
Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction chose the French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze. Thank you for a non-chocolate pick 🙂 This cake is right up my alley; light, full of citrus and perfect with a cup of hot tea. Yummo!
This cake called for lemon marmalade which I couldn’t find anywhere. Suggestions? I think I found every other marmalade flavor but NO lemon; bummer. Instead, I improvised and made a glaze of fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar. TAAAAASTY!
Yes, I left the cake in the oven a little too long and my cake edges got a bit browner than I would have liked. Thank goodness it didn’t change the kickin’ lemon flavor. This cake is even better the day after and the day after….you get the idea.
On a side note: to all of my family readers…with the glaze, this cake is reminiscent of THE infamous ,Walters lemon cake 🙂
To make the cake gluten free, I substituted:
- 1/2 brown rice flour, 1/4 cup tapioca starch, 1/4 potato starch for the AP flour
- I used 1/2 cup ground almonds like the recipe suggested(the brown specks you see in the cake)
- added 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
Thanks Liliana for a terrific pick!
30 Day Shred Challenge Update
I actually skipped the workout yesterday(supposed to be Day 5), as my legs were extremely sore. I figured I better listen to my body in order to prevent injury:) I’m back on track today and I completed Day 5 this morning. I exercised and showered before the kids got out of bed. A perfect, energizing start to the day.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
