Hello All.

I’m a big fan of the Cake Bible.  In fact, it’s falling apart, so I need a new one.  I just found out about Rose’s new book, bought it, and am making the almond chiffon cake for a party this weekend.  Coffee butter cream on top (neoclassic, but since I keep kosher, I used margarin since it’s a meat meal), with our family’s chocolate sauce on top.  It was my cousin’s birthday last week, so she’s getting another cake!

Last year for Passover, I had to make a dessert that was 1)wheat free, and 2) dairy free.  I ended up making a chocolate torte that was flourless to begin with, so there wasn’t much to do.  But I also fooled around with a cookie recipe, and came up with the attached.  First, I made a classic tuile recipe (it was before Passover) and then I used almond flour and toasted almonds.  I had to use margarine because one of the guests could have no dairy at all.  It’s a cross between a lace cookie and tuile.  The nuts get toasted during the cooking process, so there is a great toasted flavor to the cookies.  Using margarine does effect the taste and melting of the batter, but letting the cookies mature for a day helped.

Anyway, when I bought the Cake Bible, there was no such thing as websites and message boards.  How great to find this one!

Hi Hadster.  Your Almond Chiffon Cake sounds great. Unfortunately there is no attachment. Either you forgot to upload it (as I always do) or the image exceeded dimensions regulated by the forum’s software.

If you need any help, just holler.

Glad you found us!
