Hooray! This is my first French Fridays with Dorie post and I am incredibly excited to share.
I finally got off of my tookus a couple of weeks ago and ordered my own copy of Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table. It arrived last Friday, and I signed up for FFWD as soon as I got back in the house. I promptly made a cup of coffee, curled up in my favourite chair and fell in love within minutes. Enough about my semi-creepy cookbook obsession though, on to this week’s selection…Quatre-Quarts.
Truthfully, even though I know some French, I had no idea what Quatre-Quarts was. I was so pleased to find out it is simply a pound cake. The name translates to English as ‘four quarters’, and that’s exactly what it is as the flour, butter, sugar and eggs are equal in mass.
