You guys! This is it -- the final day of the 2013 Cover to Cover project! No doubt you know what that means: It's time for something sweet.
The September Bon Appetit was light on desserts. Only two sweet treats are included. But woah, do they sound good...
Most of the folks who made the Cornmeal Crepes with Figs and Pears liked them. (Although not everyone loved the texture and the flavor of the dish.) For many readers-chefs, if was their first time making crepes! Way to go, guys!
The Buttermilk Cake with Sour Milk Jam and Gin-Poached Cherries sounds exactly like something we would gravitate toward on a dessert menu. Our reviewers were mixed -- many people thought the jam and cherries were too sweet (reader-chef Cate said the jam was like a "sweetened-to-the-point-of-a-cavity creme fraiche"). But everyone seemed to agreed that the buttermilk cake itself was a real winner.
