Ren April Discussion - CAKE!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. So let's discuss cake (and not because it's TOTALLY MY BIRTHDAY THIS MONTH *cough*).

 

Ok, now that that is out of the way, name your favorite cake(s). 

 

I used to have Black Forest Cake every birthday (store-bought, to be fair) and still love it cause nostalgia:

But a recent favorite has been Ferrero Rocher cake:

I love chocolate but when it's warm and all I prefer fruity things.

 

Now, did you eat all that castle by yourself ? :biggrin:

It's usually some type of cream cheese or vanilla cream frosting. Very rich. The cake has a lot of fall type spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Sometimes people put in raisins or walnuts.

You are a bad, bad, bad man, RTE. Because of you, I quickly went to google a photo of my thus far favourite cake, which is a coffee and caramel meringue cake. Which led me to this:

Chewy Chocolate Meringues (adapted from Home Baked Comfort)

1 cup (8 fl oz / 250 ml) large egg whites – about 7
2 cups (1 lb / 500 g) sugar
5 tbsp (1 oz / 30 g) natural cocoa powder
4 oz (125 g) bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
4 oz (125 g) cocoa nibs*

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a clean, dry heatproof bowl, whisk together egg whites and sugar. Set over, but not touching, simmering water in a saucepan.
  • Whisk constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved and remove from heat. (I tested to make sure I didn’t feel any sugar granules.)
  • Beat the eggs on high using your mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat until stiff and glossy.
  • Sift cocoa over the meringue. Sprinkle chopped chocolate (and cocoa nibs if you’re using) on top.
  • Then, fold together gently with a spatula until combined.
  • Use a scoop to drop even amounts of batter onto prepared baking sheets about two inches apart.
  • Bake for about 8-9 minutes. Rotate the pans and bake for another 8-9 minutes until the cookies are fluffy and full of cracks.
  • Transfer the cookies, leaving them on the parchment paper, to wire racks to cool.

I love anything coffee so that sound so tasty.

"Come out, ye black and tans,

Come out and fight me like a man -

Tell your wives how you won medals down in Flanders!

Tell 'em how the IRA

Made you run like hell away

From the green and lovely lanes of Killashandra!"

I appreciate any well-made cake that isn't chocolate - unfortunately, most people don't make well-made cakes, and I don't bother to make them except sometimes for very special occasions.

I used to make some very decorous ones - I made wedding cakes before, or at least I do the decorations. Horrifically one time, the person who did the cake partially burned it, unless it was supposed to be dry as dust, and you could tell people weren't liking that as they were eating it, though they liked the decorations.

Why thank you!

 

Yes it is a wonderful name. I have loved it since I read Anne McCaffrey's Crystal Singer books. Also I lived in Ireland for two years quite a while back. Though not in that area. I lived in a small town Ashbourne. About 30 mins by bus from Dublin.

 

Also to not get off topic...

First of all RTE, your girlfriend is awesome. 

 

Secondly I unashamedly love cake. 

 

I was at a wedding at the weekend and the cake had 6 tiers (6!!!!). 3 different flavours, birthday cake, lemon and red velvet. They thoughtfully left little boxes so you could take cake home with you as there was SO MUCH CAKE.

 

All 3 flavours were awesome.

Go Olaf!!!! :laugh: 
Mother, don't fire me so soon, but I can't stand the taste of coffee. Love the smell and coffee flavored sweets usually, but I don't like coffee by itself.  :excl:

 

Soooo, your Sword Captain *loves* to bake. A lot. *pinches tummy and mutters*

 

One of the cakes I make most often is a pineapple upside down cake (although, I have some to die for Reese's Peanut Butter Cheesecake bars I also love to make that I posted a pic of around here recently...). I like to add extra pineapple juice into the cake batter and do extra brown sugar and butter in the pan.

If this was about pie as well as cake, I'd post some pizza pies I made for Christmas. :laugh: 
I love the blues! No need to kidnap me. Plenty of Ed to go around. 

 

 

Oh man, any strawberries and cream type dessert sounds divine right now!
