A Delicious Double Dose…

by Jamie on March 23, 2009

Today’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for Blueberry Crumb Cake was chosen by Sihan of Befuddlement. I like blueberries, but only in their firm, slightly sour state…meaning I am not a huge fan of a mushy berry. I am also not a fan of frozen fruit unless it’s going into a smoothie, so I was a little pumped when I found some firm blueberries on sale at the market. This crumb cake calls for the aromatic mixture of sugar mixed with lemon zest and lots of blueberries…a delightful combination that will make your taste buds very happy! I thought this cake was a breeze to assemble, but damn…it used a lot of different bowls! I had read on the P&Q that people were having an issue with pooling butter forming in the centers of their cakes; however, for whatever reason, I did not have this issue. The smell of this cake is slightly intoxicating and will fill your home with the nutty, sweet aroma from the crumb topping as it browns in the oven. This cake tasted amazing accompanied with a cup of Chai Tea.
I look forward to this wonderful cake for breakfast tomorrow! This cake ranks high on my TwD list and I will definitely make this again in the very near furture!
Thanks, Sihan for a delicious pick! For the recipe, head over Sihan’s blog or flip to pages 192-193 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. Also check out more delightfully delicious interpretations of this week’s dessert by clicking here to check out the Tuesday’s with Dorie blogroll.

Oh and let me not forget last week’s recipe for Dorie’s French Yogurt Cake. This dessert was chosen by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. I did not post last week due to St. Patrick’s Day recipes, so I thought I would give ya a double dose of Dorie today. I baked this cake in a large brioche pan I purchased from Williams Sonoma and topped it with a cream cheese icing. This cake was really tasty and is a definite must try! Click here for the recipe.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope one of these recipes makes your day deliciously addictive!

Mmm, two treats for the price of one! I’m all for it! The blueberry cake looks totally fabulous. I’m such a sucker for crumb topping. And of course, the yogurt cake looks excellent, too. Is it too gluttonous to wish for a slice of both?

I am loving the WS brioche pan cake! May have to add that pan to my collection.
Thanks for the blueberry recipe. It sounds fabulous. And the real bonus is the two for one today :)

I loved the blueberry cake, too, and liked that the lemon flavor was very subtle.

Yay, happy to hear you really liked it. Your yogurt cake baked up so pretty in the brioche pan and I loved how you kicked it up with that lovely cream cheese glaze.

Like you I don’t do mushy fruits (food). Eww! Which is why I don’t really bake with fruit (outside of bananas) and won’t touch the frozen stuff except to toss into my smoothie maker.

I love that you put both cakes up! I really enjoyed the blueberry coffee cake, so I had to share it. Too dangerous. The french yogurt cake looks FAB with the cream cheese frosting. I still have some in the freezer, and now I think I have an idea of how to finish eating it!

Oh, the glaze. On the yogurt cake. *swoon* Not that your crumb cake isn’t drop-dead gorgeous, but I’m a sucker for drips of glaze on cakes :)
