It was that rarest-of-things: a weightless cheesecake. I made it in a big square springform pan, and the entire thing evaporated.
I have never been a big fan of graham crust. I like to try and match the flavor of the crust to the main offering.

Not exactly a cake, but this 4-layer dacquoise with hazelnuts, almonds, and espresso ganache was definitely the most work I've put into a dessert in a while. I think I got the recipe from ATK. Very pretty and very tasty.

LazyEngineer you have me just as you could spell dacquois The result looked awesome.

If I were you I would move to Utah, buy a decomped missle site, and hole up there eating dacquois and never go on the internet again.

Googled once 'how do I make bread' and believe me I am stuck with the cooking thing, even worked in a commercial kitchen, once upon a time.

I just mastered pie, I forgot cake. Let the learning curve again begin!
sourdough isn't a recipe, it is a process.

Cake? Seriously? The closest I've ever come to cake (so therefore my best one) was when I got fed to the teeth with rolling out a million little chocolate chip cookie. I mushed all the dough together and made a cake out of it in the cookie sheet, baked a couple minutes longer on a lower temp and had bars, rather than cake, I guess. But they were sure good.

And I found out that when you cut the bars large, it's sounds better when you say you had one bar of chocolate chip cake than 6 cookies.
