OK So I know these aren't the biscuits that were assigned for this week and, instead, this is last week's assignment, the Swedish Visiting Cake chosen by Nancy of Dogs Eat the Crumbs. I finally made this dish and now must apologize Melissa of A Love at First Bite to for not completing the Sweet Cream biscuits (which I am actually going to make tonight and hopefully post tomorrow. I hope. Oh, how I hope.)
I totally feel like the class slacker. It's almost as if I'm suffering from a bad case of senioritis and I'm spending all of my time doing make-up assignments in order to grauate. Except I'm not graduating from anything. So this is just depressing.
Also, I have so many posts to catch up on and read, which I have started attacking, but I am nowhere near close. I've got many more delicious posts from my favorite bloggers (all of you!) that I am chugging through. But please, if you do take one note of advice from ever reading this blog, let it be this: Don't read blogs while hungry right before you have to go to a meeting. Your stomach will growl. You will be embarrased. That is all.
I feel even worse slacking on making this recipe because it takes, oh, all of about 5 minutes to put together. No joke. Five minutes, one bowl, great, GREAT taste. Remember that Thomas Keller Almond Cake I posted about last week? That took 30 minutes to make and needed to be made with care. Dorie's cake? Add zest to sugar, whisk in some eggs and extract, add melted butter and flour. Combine. Put in oven. Done.
A comparison? Well, these are pretty much EXACTLY THE SAME CAKE. The textures are slightly different, with Keller's being slightly more delicate, but overall? If you need to make a cake in a pinch that people will love you for? All Dorie, all the time my friends. It's a lesson we all need to learn.
Thanks to Nancy for this great choice! Click here for the recipe, and check out the rest of the TWD non-slackers in the universe!
