Decided that I needed a quick, easy dessert for this evening’s dinner – and this recipe filled the bill.

An easy mix-up. An easy bake! And boy, are they tasty! (Oh, and an added bonus: they look just like Dorie’s photo!)

Maybe I do like cupcakes….

Dorie Greenspan is a genius! Never have I had a cookbook that was as explicit in its directions as this one. I love the fact that she tells you things like, “Stand at the stove and be prepared to whisk constantly – yes, constantly!”

This week’s dessert is taken right from her pages, Limoncello Cupcakes. I think they look just like the picture! And, may I say, they were as delicious as they looked. Everyone particularly enjoyed the surprise of marmalade in the center!

Baking Chez Moi? Mai Oui!

1 Nov

I just got my copy of Dorie Greenspan’s “Baking Chez Moi,” and find myself reading it like one would read a novel! And that would be a novel one can’t put down – Gone Girl has nothing on this! I’ve decided to work my way through it, one recipe at a time, so go out an buy your fat pants if you must, but it’s going to be a long and glorious ride!

First up – Limoncello Cupcakes. Yes, you read that right – cupcakes (and I don’t even particularly like cupcakes).
