For this weeks Alpha Bakers recipe I once again had feelings of deja vu. I swear I have made this recipe before. It even takes very familiar. I guess it could have been another recipe that I beta tested.
At any rate this is a very easy recipe and quite tasty. I know that the prune preserves sounds a bit odd. At least for those people who don’t like prunes. I happen to love them so I made a double recipe of the prune preserves so I could use it on my morning toast or bagel. It is amazing how just that little hint of lemon zest totally transforms the recipe.
The cake sponge is also very nice. It is light and quick to make and is very moist and easy to roll. I am not sure if I prefer it over my usual hot milk sponge just yet but I will play around with both and see which one wins.
Making caramel is pretty much old hat these days as I seem to have made a ton of it in the past few months. I found that adding it to the whipped cream was rather nice. Not too strong a taste, just a hint of caramel in the lightly whipped cream.
All in all a really nice dessert.
