I thought it would be fun to make a list of recipes that you would like to receive the “Rose treatment.” Since Rose is working on a new book, maybe a few of these will grab her attention. I’ll update the list on this first post:


1. Sacher torte
2. Opera cake
3. Italian cream cake
4. Coconut cream pie
5. Doughnuts
6. Boston cream pie
7. Macarons (caramel; chocolate; berry flavors; strawberry; raspberry)
8. Chocolate chip cookies
9. Moon cake
10. Pork buns
11. Oblaten
12. Alkazar or Alcazar Cake
13. Battenberg Cake
14. Malakoff Torte
15. Cinnamon Rolls
16. Soft Pretzels
17. Banana Pudding
18. Cassata Siciliana

What a great idea Matthew, to do a list!

I second Moon Cake!
Also, maybe more flavors for the macaroons, I’d love to have great recipe for some berry flavor (raspberry, strawberry, etc) as well as a unique flavor blend that Rose would create.

Macarons are on my list for the “Rose treatment.”  Another thing I’d love to have her figure out is how to make oblaten. I’ve searched in vain for a recipe for years, finally resigning myself to the idea—- suggested by brilliant people on this blog—- that perhaps I should just use tuiles instead. I’d still like to make actual oblaten, if possible.

Another recipe would be doughnuts.

Thanks Beka, I wanted to mention that Rose has a brownie recipe in the new book and also posted on the blog. Search for Barcelona brownies. Also, I’m curious what you mean by pasta in desserts. The only dessert like that I’m familiar with is a “rice” pudding made with vermicelli. Is that the type of thing you are thinking of?

Matthew,
I would like to add two more:
1. Alkazar or Alcazar Cake
2. Battenberg, also called a Tennis Cake ~ English reference to the German much loved Battenberg Cake, after the War the English referred to it as Tennis Cake.

The Battenberg cake is very pretty. I had never heard the name of that before.

And yes to the Moon Cake!  I would be interested in the recipe as well as seeing what version Rose chooses (out of so many!).  I’d also love a source for the tool to make the beautiful top designs.

Rose did a Dobos Torte in one of her books, I think it may have been Melting Pot.  But it would be great to have her create a filling that wouldn’t be too rich to use in many layers.

Sachertorte!

And how about Malakoff Torte? That’s much like Tiramisu just as a cake and without the coffee…
