TWD: Flip-Over Plum Cake & Cocoa Almond Meringues


Becky of Project Domestication chose Flip-Over Plum Cake for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.

Yah, I know, those don't look much like Plum Cake, do they? That's cause they're not. After baking the cake, sharing it with friends and family and enjoying it very much, I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of it!! Duh. Anyway, the cake was fanTAStic. It almost seemed to be more of a crumble than a cake, but whatever, it was GOOD.

Just so I would have a picture to post, I made the Cocoa Almond Meringues, chosen by Mike of Ugly Food for an Ugly Dude back in August.


YUM! they were light and crumbly and melt in your mouth good. Not to mention a little chewy inside.

Thanks to Becky and Mike for two very good picks. If you'd like to see the recipes you can visit the links above or check out Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

This was good - not surprised that you forgot to get a photo before it all disappeared. Cute meringues too.

Both great recipes. First time cooking with plums and making meringues. Delicious!

I almost forgot to snap a few pictures of the cake (I used peaches), but got a few before it was eaten up by company.
I loved the meringues--perfect cookie for me--seems indulgent, but they're rather low fat. ;)

I almost missed the picture also. My husband breathed this one in.

You have brought back favorable memories of the meringues.

I loved the meringues when I made them. The plum cake was good so I understand forgetting to take a photo.

Your meringues look awesome! I loved both of these recipes too. My cake almost didn't get photographed either so I can totally relate!

I hate it when I forget to take photos! Usually happens when something is too tasty to wait to eat it though! The meringues look delicious.
