I was walking home in Williamsburg yesterday and saw a woman carrying a handbag that said "Eat Cake For Breakfast." My first thought was, "No", because I'm not a big cake fan, but this morning, I woke up and took a long look at last night's dessert (Easy Jam Tart), and thought, "F-it. Why not?" and took a bite!
Delicious for breakfast! Delicious for dessert! Delicious!
That said, I'm probably not gonna do it again. I feel a little ill now. I guess that is "why not." : (
Here's the low-down on the cake that got me into this predicament:
Easy Jam Tart
1/2 cup (70 grams) stone-ground cornmeal or polenta
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
9 tablespoons (4 1/2 ounces or 130 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
1 large egg, whole
1 large egg, separated
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/3 to 1 3/4 cups (450 grams) jam (see Note above; I used the smaller amount) or marmalade
2 tablespoons (30 grams) coarse-crystal or granulated sugar
|Dessert= Breakfast Cake= Yum!|
