Ugg Smell Food chose the Peanut Butter Torte on pages 282-283 from Baking: From My Home to Yours* for this week’s recipe. When I went through the ingredients mountains of sugar and fat were building up in my mind’s eye. Than I did some calculation and found that this recipe had more fat than the Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tartlets . This time I hadn’t the feeling I would like, it sounded too rich and heavy. My son persuaded me to give the recipe a try, because he is a fan of peanut butter. I used some reduced-fat products, which I normally won’t buy and halved the recipe. In the absence of a 6-inch-pan I used three tartelet-dishes.
I quartered one tartelet and served it as a portion. My suspicion was confirmed: It tasted still very rich, even the peanut butter lover didn’t want a second serving. It’s too bad about all the ingredients.
