Tiger Cakes

“The worst chocolate I ever had was fantastic”.  A quote that Ree Drummond’s father-in-law said on one of her shows.  A sentiment that I wholeheartedly agree with.

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we made Tiger Cakes from Baking Chez Moi.  As with many of Dorie’s recipes I learned a few new techniques.  This recipe starts off with egg whites whipped up until foamy then you add the almond flour and it becomes paste- like. After the addition of the rest of the ingredients melted butter is added and stirred until incorporated.  This dough/recipe is unlike anything I have ever made before but the results were delicous.  My husband is an almond lover so he really enjoyed them.  I believe his comment was “what’s not to like”.  I froze half of mine to have for a dessert when I have guests.  I think it was cute that Dorie says the melted chocolate is optional, not in my book.

Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. We don’t publish the recipes, instead we encourage you to buy the book. To see what others thought go here.

    Your little cakes turned out beautifully. They were such a hit at my house, I had none left to freeze!


  13. I thought about freezing some of my cakes too, but instead I gave half of them away to my daughter's classroom staff. Yours look delicious!
