Savarin

I’m starting to get discouraged with this book. I did not enjoy this recipe and ended up eating the berries and some framboise whipped cream sans cake. The berries and cream were delicious. The cake was yeasty and dry. 

Once I saw the cake come out of the oven, I didn’t even want to try making the syrup which I know would have helped with the dryness. I knew the cake wouldn’t work for me and I gave up. Instead of getting discouraged, I will choose remember all of the great bread recipes we’ve had so far and that amazing red wine onion confit. Hoping the next recipe in two weeks works a bit better. 

What did you guys think of this one?
