So I’m a little behind.
And by that, I mean I’m a lot behind.
Allow me to explain. There are a few reasons: 1) I have been trying to graduate. I’m almost there (yay!) but not quite. Once the impending graduation date occurs I will be able to devote myself more to things I love (like baking, taking pictures of things I bake, and writing about them) rather than writing code and other project-related things. 2) I have been cooking for a lot more people than usual recently, and haven’t really had time to take pictures of the things I’ve been cooking before a hungry throng is ready to chow down.
I promise to get on a more regular schedule once item 1 is addressed. Which is soon. Which makes me nervous. But, luckily, I have a couple of daring bakers recipes to post that are more than qualified to help me overcome my anxiousness in a wave of pure deliciousness.
The March 2011 Daring Baker’s Challenge was hosted by Ria of Ria’s Collection and Jamie of Life’s a Feast. Ria and Jamie challenged The Daring Bakers to bake a yeasted Meringue Coffee Cake.
I am very glad they did.
This coffee cake was absolutely delicious. Next time I would probably up the amount of filling, which I chose to be chocolate chunks, dried cherries, and cinnamon-sugar. Even so, the cake was wonderful.
You can find the recipe I used at Life’s a Feast. All I changed was to substitute dried cherries for the nuts.
The cakes even looked pretty as they rose!
I will post the April Daring Baker’s challenge asap… then I have plans for some non-DB recipes! Soon!
