A Scone, a Cake and a Tart | Quick Links 2009.08.30

3 desserts by 3 bloggers :: blueberry scone :: chocolate cake :: nectarine galette

It seems that this weekend all my favorite food bloggers concentrated on desserts. Or maybe I noticed them more because I love desserts. Three particular recipes caught my eyes:

+ Jaden of Steamy Kitchen talked about the best Blueberry Scones with Lemon Curd she ever had. She renamed the curd Lemon Glaze. This recipe will create a scone that seems different from the scones we are used to. It is moist, rich, delicate. It sounds like an improvement of the dry scones that coffee shops too often served.

+ Lili of Pickelet and Pie proposes an Chocolate orange cake with orange blossom cream. She was looking to make a dessert for 30 persons. She adapted David Lebovitz’s Chocolate Idiot cake recipe to make her chocolate and orange cake that she topped with an orange blossom cream. As a chocolate lover, I would have a hard time resisting if you present me this plate.

+ We ate tonight for dessert a warm piece of green apple and blueberry pie. I feel less guilty when I eat a fruit pie. I would feel even less guilty with this open, single crust Nectarine Galette that I spotted on Smitten Kitchen. To save time, make two bathes of the dough and freeze half in a plastic bag. You can leave unbaked dough in the freezer for a few weeks before baking.
