I have recently been on vacation so I am familiarizing myself with the inter-workings of a kitchen again. I found my assignment for the week, Limoncello Cupcakes (page 194) in Baking Chez Moi.
When my son got home from school and wanted to know why the cupcakes were on a fancy dish. He said "Is book club coming over tonight?" Nope just Tuesdays with Dorie I said. These were more muffin- like than cake. The fact that I baked them a tad too long didn't help either. I loved the frosting and thought it was the best part. I did put in the optional orange marmalade but it sunk to the bottom. The paper liners stayed wet from the syrup application but the foil ones worked just fine. My husband ate two for dessert so I think it gets a thumbs up. I will bake less, stir less and hope for a lighter cake next time. And maybe make them for my book club.
Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. To see what others did in this group go here.
