I know, I know.. another recipe from Dorie?! I just couldn’t help it. Her book is too good, how can you resist? I’ve always been intrigued of baking with sour cream… it always produces the moistest cakes! I would have never thought of using sour cream in baking; it just seems so contradictory. But who am I kidding, with all these bacon related desserts popping up, I’m really beginning to second guess myself.
This recipe was perfect (except that I pulled it out of the pan a little bit early and the top fell apart, hence no picture of the complete product). It was light, fluffy, moist, and flavorful. I loved how the sugar mixture hardened a bit and had a bit of a crunch. The nuts were a nice touch, but I would probably leave them out next time because I’m not that big of a fan of nuts. I would probably leave the chocolate pieces out, too, because I’m a simple kinda girl. It would actually taste like the cinnamon crumb coffee cake from Starbucks. Delish!
Now you must be wondering, “where’s the recipe”?! I’m sorry to say that I’m not posting this recipe because I’ve already posted one from her, and I really think you should buy her book! This recipe is found on page 182 of Baking: From my Home to Yours. Trust me, it’s really worth it. If there’s only one book you buy this year, make it this one!
I’ll be out for the next couple days since I’m getting my wisdom teeth pulled out tomorrow at 11AM. I’m actually kind of nervous about being knocked out, since I have never been knocked out in my entire life. Any words of advice? My meals for the next couple of days will consist of yogurt and smoothies. Wonderful!
