Karen DeMasco's Black and White Cakes

Serious Eats Karen DeMasco Post a comment

I first discovered this Australian treat, classically called a Lamington, when I was in Japan. It was a snack left for me in my hotel room, and I was blown away. Cubes of super moist white cake are glazed in chocolate. Once the glaze is set, it helps hold the fragile cake together, and the whole thing just melts in your mouth. More

Cook the Book: Apple Fritters

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

The batter has two leavening agents, beer and whipped egg whites, which make for light and airy fritters. The apple slices sit in a cinnamon and sugar mixture for just enough time to absorb the flavors without turning mushy. These fritters have all the wonderful appley qualities of an apple-filled doughnut minus that cloyingly sweet gooey apple filling. More

The buttermilk and lemon zest added a slight tang, the cinnamon and nutmeg brought to mind the fall flavors, and the glaze made these little guys sparkle. Doughnuts tend to brighten any day, and this was no exception. More

Cook the Book: White Chocolate Truffles

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

As someone who needs no convincing about the glories of white chocolate, I was eager to try Demasco's White Chocolate Truffles with lemon zest and pistachios. Melting the chocolate and the lemon zest together releases the fragrant oils into the creamy chocolate, cutting the sweetness with a hint of acid. I left my pistachios ground a little less than fine for the truffle coating, lending a nutty crunch and a beautifully craggy exterior. Even if you prefer dark or milk to white chocolate, I suggest you give these little guys a try, the lemon really takes these truffles to the next level. More

When the lovely apple-packed and cinnamon-scented muffins emerged from my oven, I was struck by their pliant texture. They had a resilience that made every muffin come out of the tin in a bouncy little round. More
