Last week, the girl got the movie ‘Forrest Gump’ out from the library for us to watch together.
She must have been bored stiff.
It has been about 12 years since I watched it, so we watched it because I was bored stiff.
I made sure that she closed her eyes at the appropriate times, because Forrest Gump is really a great movie except for all the bad stuff in it.
One of my favorite quotes from that movie is “Were like peas and carrots. Jenny and I.”
Peas and carrots compliment each other.
They are like chocolate and peanut butter, or chocolate and espresso, or chocolate and Chocolatechic, or chocolate and caramel, or chocolate and orange or chocolate and chocolate.
They are meant to be together.
Today’s TWD that Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction picked for us is French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade glaze.
It called for lemon zest and lemon marmalade, but y’all just gotta know that Pothole has never even heard of lemon marmalade, and quite frankly, neither had I.
So I used orange, and added some mini chocolate chips.
Purely for the compliment factor.
Your supposed to wait for it to cool completely before painting on a strained lemon orange marmalade glaze, but since I have the patience of a 3 year old in the check out lane wanting a candy bar, I let it cool all of 10 minutes.
And in a test of extreme will power, I let it cool a whole 30 minutes before I cut into it.
Only, mini chocolate chips don’t cool down that fast and when you slice it open, chocolate schmears everywhere, including your fingers, but believe me I know how to take care of that problem.
This is a fabulous cake. The orange flavor is just right. Not to overpowering, not to subtle, and the mini’s….perfection!
Go check out Liliana’s blog. She has the recipe. Make this for your next get together, make it for your next brunch, make it for your co-workers, or you could always make it for yourself and eat it all watching the next episode of “24”.
