Apparently, I can wax poetic about making a food item that I am not fond of; but can not put two coherent thoughts together about something I l.o.v.e.d.
Both of these dishes appeared as part of our Easter buffet and they were a huge hit all around.
The Daring Bakers’ April 2012 challenge, hosted by Jason at Daily Candor, were two Armenian standards: nazook and nutmeg cake. Nazook is a layered yeasted dough pastry with a sweet filling, and nutmeg cake is a fragrant, nutty coffee-style cake.
Ode to a Nutmeg Cake
O! nutmeg cake, O! nutmeg cake.
I really loved how good you taste.
In a processor you were made.
Then in the oven you were laid.
A short time later you were done.
After you cooled, we all said yum.
This month a pastry named Nazook
Was the dish we could choose to cook.
A cream cheese pastry was created.
And with butter and sugar, this was inundated.
All this was wound up into a log.
Which I tried not eat, like a hog.
This post participates in The Daring Bakers. The recipe for this month's challenge can be found here.
Have a great weekend, everyone... I am off to go find my mojo.
