Notes about this recipe

  • Zosia on March 29, 2014

    Interesting idea.....a tender vanilla-buttermilk cake surrounded by a crunchy, nutty dacquoise. Flavour and texture were good for the most part but I had execution issues. The batter didn't rise high enough to meet the top of the meringue mixture used to coat the interior of the pan so there was a bit of breakage on inverting the cake, and the dacquoise layer at the bottom of the cake pan failed to become crisp. I think I'd have better luck baking this in a smaller loaf pan.
