Tuesdays With Dorie: Surprise! No Berry Cake Here

January 20, 2009

I am passing on this week’s recipe, Berry Surprise Cake, not because I’m a chicken! I had already decided not to make it before I read that a lot of TWD bakers were having genoise woes.  I did make a genoise once and it turned out so-so, but it’s not my favorite kind of cake and berries are out of season and blah blah blah, I decided to skip.

I will take a moment to say that I’m very sad about the peanut butter recall.  After I returned from the grocery store with peanut butter granola bars and peanut butter cup ice cream (low fat!), I found out that the salmonella outbreak is affecting products containing peanut butter, such as cookies, crackers, and ice cream.  The things I bought haven’t been recalled yet, but I’ll wait a bit to be on the safe side.  Thankfully, my trusty Skippy Super Chunk is in the clear!

UPDATE: I checked the manufacturer web sites, and the granola bars and ice cream are cleared for consumption!


  1. I am glad I hadnt bought anything thats been recalled that is yet! I hope your ice cream stays in the clear.
    I hope to see you join back in TWD next week!

  2. yeah, i am sad about the recall, too. I love PB.

  3. Thank you for you nice comment ! Try it next time there is a video that maybe could help us !

  4. You picked the right week to sit it out! No fun on the pb scare.

  5. I wanted to buy Reese’s hearts today….but I passed.

    See you next week!

  6. hi there! i passed on the cake too…made the cream filling, which was great, but skipped out on the cake.

    on another note, glad you tried the chili i made! so happy that it turned out well for you. adding ground turkey to it was probably delicious–i just may have to try that for my hubby next time!

  7. I skipped the Berry Surprise Cake too. I’m also not crazy about genoise and steer clear of berries out of season, for the most part. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the gingerbread!

  8. Hi Jill! Thanks for visiting my Toby Tuesday blog! The gingerbread cupcakes look yummy — I do enjoy gingerbread…
