SMS: Lemon (Orange) Walnut (no nuts) Sour Cream Pound Cake.....
With all the great reviews I had to make this pound cake! I made mine with oranges because I had two I needed to use and I was too lazy to walk out back and pick lemons. Left out the nuts since I will be sending this to work with DH and I know there are a few co workers that don't do nuts. This was amazing; beautiful crumb, nice flavor and a perfect glaze. I made a mini loaf for DH and me and used a 2 pound loaf pan for the other. Needless to say the mini didn't last very long, LOL. You could use any citrus for this cake; I think lime might be good next time. Thanks to Raeann, who just got back from the Bahamas, of Basically, Baby Boots for picking an easy and delicious recipe. Check out her blog for the recipe and Lenny Kravitz!!!
Well, I'm a personal trainer and if I told my clients about my baking forays they would string me up in the gym. I know who I can give my baked goodies to and who I cannot. I do eat what I make, I just limit myself and don't over do.
This site started all because of Dorie Greenspan and her book (bible?) "Baking, from my home to yours". I bought the book months ago and was supprised to see how many food blogs referenced her book. I found several baking blogs that mentioned "Tuesdays with Dorie" and I just had to join. I love to cook, to be more specific, bake, and I never tire of finding new recipes and improving old ones. I love to adjust recipes to suit my tasts and to what ingredients I have on hand.
I learned to cook by watching my mom, then helping her and then finally cooking on my own. My mom was born in Rangoon, Burma and lived in India until 1944. Because most Brittish families, in the far East, had cooks my mom did not learn to cook until she came to this country in 1947. Her first attempt at spanish rice resulted in a glue like substance because she forgot to add water to the tomato paste. Dispite these set backs, she became a very good cook and baker.
