after taking the weekend off, it was time to get back to cooking. ever since i made the brownies from the "Ad-Hoc at Home" cookbook (Artisan) by Thomas Keller, i've been itching to continue making some of his recipes. today i made his pineapple upside-down cake. it was fairly simple and came out so light and fluffy i am going to continue cooking out of the book tomorrow!
if you are interested in the recipe, check out the excellent blog by foodgal.com. i used a 9-in dark cake pan (since i don't have a silicone one) and it came out great! i think i need a nap now...
day 2 of my input and I think I should just start by keeping track of my weight gain. everything she is making is not horribly bad for you, I just can't keep from eating too much of it. This falls into that zone as I will be getting up shortly to get my second piece of the cake after typing this up. It was very light and has great pineapple flavor. The pineapple wasn't too soft and the cake itself was fluffy. My only critical comment would be on the cake as I wish it was a little less fluffy, but all in all it still was amazing. Good balance of flavors and it tastes very light, not heavy at all. Highly recommended!
