Of course since it's St Patrick's Day today I had to throw a little green on the Tuesday with Dorie recipe chosen by Lilianna over at My Cookbook Addiction. She picked a great recipe, French Yogurt Cake. I made mine into cupcakes that I scooped out and filled with macerated strawberries & topped with a meringue butter cream.
This is probably blasphemy but I think the butter cream ruined things :( I never thought I would ever utter those words but there it is.... It was too sweet and didn't balance well with the sweet cake. I would have been better off with some Chantilly cream to go with the strawberries. I ate the left over pieces I plucked out of the top of the cakes with the left over strawberries and it was delish!
Ah well sometimes you futz with things a little too much eh. My honey didn't seem to mind as he just scarfed down two of them as I was writing this. With no strawberries, cuz he's weird like that.
Side note: My honey is watching a little 24 on the ol' Tivo. I hear the breaking news, that Barack Obama will be sworn in as President... hahaha... I guess he hasn't watched this show in awhile.
