This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was actually Coconut-Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise chosen by Andrea of Andrea In The Kitchen. You can visit her blog to get the recipe. I’ve unfortunately had to pass this week. From what I read there was a lot of baking time, someone said they spent 5 hours in the kitchen. :-O There’s just no way I could have handled that kind of heat in my kitchen right now. It’s so hot outside and it gets pretty hot in my upper level where the kitchen is, so I just had to pass :( So be sure and check out the TWD blogs and see how the others did with this fabulous dessert!
However, I have been saving these photos of the Peanut Butter Torte. My daughter turned 15 at the beginning of March. I handed her Dorie’s book, Baking From My Home to Yours
, and told her to pick whatever she wanted and I would make it. She chose the Peanut Butter Torte.
I personally LOVED it, even though I’m not huge on an overpowering flavor of nutmeg and similar spices. This torte had a fabulously creamy center and a delicious ganache. It also was huge! I ended up having to give half of it to my neighbors as there was just too much for us to finish. I would definitely make this again.
I felt safe posting this as it was actually chosen through TWD back in May of 2008, 5 months before I joined. To get the recipe, visit that week’s host, Elizabeth of Ugg Smell Food
