Gateau de Sirop
Gateau de Sirop is a rustic and humble Canjun cake recipe from Louisiana. To tell you the truth the name intrigued me when I ran across this recipe in last months issue of Eating Well magazine. I figured I had everything in my pantry and why not give it a try? SO, I did and how did it go over??
Well, there were mixed reviews. I liked it, my husband didn’t, my daughter enjoyed it and my son wouldn’t touch it with a 10 foot pole. My bro-in-law who’s been visiting with us for the week gave it a thumbs up. Overall, I think we liked it… it is a very mildly sweet cake but appetizing just the same!
Gateau de Sirop I guess this cake is a traditional food made when the pecan trees are harvested. I’m sure it tastes simply amazing with fresh pecans! It would be a lovely compliment to a bowl of gumbo on a fall evening!! I hope you enjoy this delicious little cake 🙂
Happy Saturday!! I hope you have lots of fun weekend plans in store…
