Last Saturday, while flipping through a magazine, Guy found a recipe for Bourbon Poached Peaches. I already had some Bourbon Ice Cream in the freezer, and the peaches looked like a perfect compliment. Then, since Guy's birthday was Monday, I thought I would take things one step farther...
I found this recipe, and though it is pretty basic, there were a LOT more steps than I have ever taken to make pound cake.
|First things first, beat the egg whites.|
|This made me want to make some meringue cookies...|
|The bourbon, egg yolk, and vanilla mixture.|
|Ready to start folding.|
|First 1/3 of the flour (I used Swan's Down cake flour).|
|Then half of the egg whites.|
|Then flour, then egg whites, then flour...folding gently the whole time.|
|Ready for the oven!|
|It took a bit longer to bake then the recipe said, but my oven is finicky. I just kept a close eye on it at the end. For some reason the top crust sort of separated from the cake and cracked on one side.|
|The competed Trio of Bourbonny Goodness served up at the post party at Chief and J-BROWW's. I thought it tasted pretty good, and Guy seemed happy, so I guess all those steps were worth it.|
