Odd title you say. Yes, it is. But what it is leading to is a Two-Fer for TWD. This week’s tasty treat and one from earlier this month that just didn’t get posted, or made for that matter.
This weeks’ pick from Caitlin of Engineer Baker is…
- Cornmeal and Fruit Loaf
When one of my Twitter Buddies asked me about this loaf I described it as an apple cake, but Nancy hit it right when she called it a sweet cornbread with apples. Exactly!! So if you like cornbread and you like apples then this loaf is just right for you. It contains both fresh and dried apples spiced up with cinnamon (optional. NO!!) and nutmeg. There is just enough cornmeal included to take it out of the regular quick bread category. Great Pick, Caitlin. This is soo good. It is good toasted, too.
You can find the recipe on Caitlin’s blog and on pate 43 of Dorie’s Baking From My Home to Yours.
Now this is a Two-Fer, remember.
Back on 8/16 the pick for TWD was Tropical Crumble.
Made in a
pie pan square casserole dish it is a combination of cooked mango and banana (and thus NOT very photogenic) which is mixed with fresh and ground ginger and brown sugar and then covered with a brown sugar, butter, pecan streusel.
The streusel is put on before the crumble is baked so it melts into the mangos and bananas for a rich tasty treat.
Thanks, Gaye, for a delightful dessert. You can find the recipe on her blog, Laws of the Kitchen or on page 418 of Dorie’s BFMHTY.
