As you’ll recall, once a month, one of the recipes I bake goes to my friend and co-worker, Gilad. Unfortunately, at the end of this month (so, at the end of this week!), he’ll no longer be my co-worker. 😦 I’m glad he’s not leaving the area, and I’ll still see him at least once a month through this year, though! 🙂 Anyway, I had a hard time picking what to give him this month, so I let him choose. He said he loved lemon, so this was it!
I haven’t tried these yet, though the leftover posset was delicious. Maybe he’ll let me have a taste tomorrow!
This week, the heavenly cake bakers catch-up group is making the red fruit shortcake. I can kind of see where Mendy’s coming from when he says this isn’t much of a challenge, since it’s a genoise from another recipe, topped with fruit, and maybe some meringues crisps or whipped dairy of some sort. That being said, I made it anyway, since I have lots of strawberries in my garden, just looking for an excuse to be used. Plus, my shed’s finally finished, so I don’t have that as an excuse not to bake any more.
Ok, so it’s supposed to be marionberry shortcake with the heavenly cake bakers this week, but my husband says “marionberry” is the mayor of Washington, and there was no mayor of Washington to be found in my grocery store’s freezer section, so I used fresh strawberries from Herrles, supplemented with a handful from my own patch of 5 everbearing plants. How can you beat that?
