Chocolate cake made with cooked quinoa
Exhibit #16: Pastel Libanés
Exhibit #11: Clementine Pound Cake.
Clementine. Pound Cake. Enough said.
Exhibit 6: Gooey Meyer Lemon Butter Cake.
I think I need butter cake, and I never even knew about it until this year. This one is recommended to eat straight out of the oven. That wouldn’t be a problem.
Exhibit #5: No-Bake Chocolate Cake.
Rich, dense, near black chocolate cake. Dangerous because it can be done lickety-split…
Exhibit 3: Pumpkin Mini Bundt Cakes.
I could probably do 31 posts on bundt cakes alone. Stately, dense, generally huge, and handsome good looks from specialty bakeware… they are some of my favorite cakes!
Exhibit 1: St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake.
I’m going sugar-free for January! This is a task I’ve never really tried before, and even though I am usually suspicious of New Year’s resolutions and their ability to “stick”, I guess it’s about time I give it a go.
After a heavily sweetened December, I can’t say that it even feels too difficult to start 2010 without my dear friend, sugar. My rules for this month are no refined sugar (excepting in small amounts as it pertains to my recipe testing), and no drinks that are sugary or convert near immediately to sugar (like alcohol).
The hardest part of my self-imposed challenge will be going without baking much, so instead of impulsively baking all the things that strike my fancy, I’ll be posting here everyday. Come February, I should have a cache of dessert links to choose from… but by that time, I’m hoping that I’ll have beaten my sweet tooth into submission.
Happy 2012, and Happy Sugar-Free January!
