There aren’t many desserts left in Around my French Table for us to make (as in, under 10 of them – cue panic!) and we’re rationing them out so I was pleased to see Visitandine (p 436) make the cut for this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe! Described as “a simple very white cake with an elegant small grain crumb, a lovely springy sponge, and a pure butter and sugar flavor that makes it perfect plain or paired with jam, fruit, chocolate, citrus curds, cream, frosting or glacé.” Well ok then. Of course, I minified this. I cut the recipe in half and made 2x 4″ springform pans for a total of 4 servings.
Essentially, this came together in around 15 minutes and baked for about 30 minutes. So simple but so full of possibilities.
I went very plain on this one – I slathered the insides with fabulous jam from Christine Ferber and topped it with a little whipped cream, then added a sprinkle of icing sugar. Not fancy. But simply scrumptious.
You can find the recipe for Dorie Greenspan’s Visitandine here.
