I got curious too and did a search.  I think this is the culprit.

You're a far better google-er than I! This will be my Sunday project! Or maybe late next week project, depending on how long my perogies take (I'm Canadian, I can call them perogies).

Heh, and you're far more industrious than I! I'm Canadian too, and I prefer to buy my perogies from the local Eastern European deli. Fantastic little mini ones!

From another Canadian... I don't get it... what's wrong with calling them perogies? What do others call them?

Confessions of a Frontier Woman's Cinnamon Rolls

The problem making this bite-size is that hubby snatches one and pops it into his mouth everytime he passes by.

I know, I know... I'm a rabid cook.

those look delish! I looove that blog AND those rolls (made them last week, but accidentally burned a few pans :sad: . They were great, though!)

Chufi's "Gevulde koeken"

I did the best I could converting the measurements, but I think I messed up because the cookies were kind of tough. Those online converters NEVER work for me. I need to buy a digital scale!

They were still very tasty!

For the Confessions cinnamon rolls, how many grams/ounces/cups are in a bag of icing sugar? The recipes call for a bag, but a bag of icing sugar in Japan is maybe 1/2 to 1 cup.

At the risk of going too far off-topic, as a friend constantly reminds me, perog/pierog (however you want to transliterate it) is singular, perogi/pierogi is plural. And I wish I could buy them from a nice old Ukrainian baba, but I've not yet found one in Japan!

Perhaps I'll make some fruit ones, too. I've never had fruit perogy. And it's bringing the talk of perogies a little closer to the dessert topic!

Rona, I used about 2 cups and a half of powdered sugar. I added some more when the liquid was too watery. I guess you just tweak it until the mixture turns thick but pourable.

This is more of a morning or afternoon coffeecake but since there's no thread entitled "what's for brunch" I'm posting it here.

It's Emily Luchetti's upside down rhubarb cake from 4-Star Desserts, increased to one and a half of the recipe and made square instead of round.

It was fun to lay out the rhubarb; even more fun to unmold it; needless to say eating it was a pleasure (Emily has never let me down); and most fun of all was posting it on Flickr and starting an upside down cake group (upside-down cake pool).

Just did that this morning and haven't had the time to invite other photos yet but hope to do so tonight. First 2 pages of search alone reveal pineapple, banana, cranberry, pear, apple, blueberry, cape gooseberries, apricots...so check back in a week for more upside-down deliciousness!

I was craving the idea of black sesame financiers. The first attempt wasn't quite what I was after, but I made some tweaks, and this version tasted pretty nice:

Kurogoma financiers with kuromitsu (from my blog)

It's served with kuromitsu, a Japanese molasses-like syrup, which makes it even better. The recipe, hopefully reasonably well recorded, is here .

Caramelized Cardamom Apples With Pistachio Cream from Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cookery. It was really good. It is such a great combination of ingredients and textures.

I love this-it looks like a mosaic!

They're upside down and I used 1 inch muffin forms, but the texture is totally different than muffins (a kind of indescribable crispiness that yields without breaking).

There's no yolk, for one thing. The flour quantity is very minimal; the nuts (typically almonds) are proportionally more than the flour. And the number one difference: brown butter!

I've sometimes baked them flat and sliced them into cubes, as Licorous seems to do in my hood.

Those look like upside-down muffins. How are they different from muffins?

Jason, those are just gorgeous. Sesame, especially black sesame is one of my favorite flavors. I went to your blog and copied the recipe. I'd really like to try these. Thank you for posting.

Olive oil cake topped with a bitter orange marmalade glaze.  I love the flavors in this cake: anise seed, rosemary, orange juice.  Really good!  I must confess, this was breakfast today. :wub:

gallery_15437_3722_1184937.jpg

Looks great! What type of olive oil did you use? I assume it was evoo, but was it fruity, spicy...?

I have an olive oil cake recipe in an an excellent olive oil cookery book but still haven't tried it. It is the type of thing that intrigues me and seems questionable at the same time since olive oil has such a strong presence. Seeing that photo though has just about pushed me over the edge into trying it.

It does call for EVOO. I used my favorite everyday brand, DaVinci. Suprisingly the olive oil flavor is not what I taste in the final product. The anise seed, lemon zest, rosemary, orange juice and triple sec are the more predominant flavors. It is really moist and the flavors I find to be more sophisticated than the usual dessert. I brought it to a party and I've had four people call and ask for the recipe. PM me if you'd like the recipe I used. Next time I may try a rhubarb/strawberry compote on top.

we had a dessert of "scraps". I had leftover almond sponge cake from making two opera type cakes for a baby shower and so I cut it into four layers, slathered it with vanilla neoclassic buttercream and bittersweet chocolate neoclassic buttercream (i had a small amount of each in the freezer from a cake I made last week) and chilled it so it would be easy to cut. Very yummy!

Alinka, beautiful pic!

gfron, I love the lavender desserts and I especially love that they are served on dixie plates! I made a lavender shortbread once and found it was way too strong the first day but mellowed considerably the next. Did you find that?

Joe, Yum! That looks like something I'll need to make soon!

This was our dessert last night...a Cinderella cake I made for my daughter's third birthday. Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and vanilla buttercream. Very sophisticated, non?!

      I posted this on YouTube the other day and thought I'd post it here. Personally, when I make them for me I only use Erythritol (a sugar substitute) but depending on the friend sugar or a blend of the two. Unlike other zucchini brownies, these don't use egg white, so they're not cake-y, but dense and fudgy. 
       
      Oh, and because I use whey protein, they're higher in protein and good for post-workout bite. 
       
       
      Ingredients
      300 -400 grams zucchini 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute 1/2 cup cocoa 1-2 tablespoons flavoring (brandy, rum, vanilla, etc) 2 shots of espresso (or instant, 60ml/2oz) 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup flour 1/2 cup oatmeal 1 cup whey protein (or milk powder) 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, but adds nice flavor)   1. Mince the zucchini in the food processor with the salt.
      2. Add the sugar or sugar substitute and process until the sugar is dissolved.
      3. Bloom your cocoa: In a separate bowl, combine the cocoa with HOT espresso and your flavorings (including cinnamon). Stir until mostly dissolved.
      4. To the food processor add the cocoa mixture and two egg yolks and blend together.
      5. Add the whey protein or milk powder to the mixture and blend together.
      6. Add the oatmeal and blend.
      7. Add the flour and pulse to incorporate (in other words, try not to over mix).
      8. Pour into a brownie pan and bake for 20-30 minutes at 180C/350F

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      In hopes of sleeping better, etc, etc, I have currently given up gluten, dairy and now sugar.  The gluten and dairy pose no problems...the sugar does.  I am not happy using mannitol or erythritol or any of those artificial sweeteners...they give me severe digestive problems.   But I can tolerate stevia very nicely.  The only problem is that there doesn't seem to be much sweetened with this ingredient.
       
      I do have a carob/coconut oil/peanut butter/stevia candy of sorts.  I don't really like it all that much, but it does work.  That's about it.
       
      Has anyone any recipes for desserts using stevia?  Thanks.

      Ever since Todd talked making cupcakes I have been cupcake crazy. Although, I am not a cake maker but more of a pie person.
      My first dessert that I love that I make is my Coconut Cream Pie w/heavy whipped cream. I don't use low fat anything and probably angioplasties is necessary after this baby.
      My second is Peach Cobbler w/rich vanilla ice cream. I never met a cobbler that I didn't like, but peach is my favorite.
      I don't make these often because I wouldn't be able to get through the front door if I did.
      How about yours?
      .....Janet
