Welcome to week 12 of the Alpha Bakers bake-a-long, an online project where a group of food bloggers bake our way through The Baking Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum. Most of the recipes made during this project will not be shared, but I will post my commentary followed by a full photo tutorial.
This week's selection - Lemon Posset Shortcakes. I was pressed for time this week so I opted to make the Lemon Posset Alma variation.
Optional ingredients and/or equipment suggested - digital scale.
How does it taste - Like lemon heaven. It's absolutely divine.
How does it look - Smooth and creamy and oh so delicious.
Level of difficulty - Easy.
Were the directions clear - Yes.
What would I do differently next time - Continue to make just the lemon posset portion of the recipe. I'm sure the shortcakes are good, but I know the posset is the shining star here so just cut out all the fluff and make the just the yummy posset. You're guests will not be disappointed, I promise.
Next up - Hamantaschen (Purim), March 2, 2015. Not sure I'll have time to bake this week, so we'll see.
Okay, here's my photo tutorial.
Note: I know we're not sharing the recipe for this lemon posset, but I made a different version a couple years ago and posted the recipe on the main page of my blog - feel free to check it out here.
