souschef | Oct 1, 2008 01:38 PM

Another ravenous hound (allxum) and I have been discussing "Pithiviers", a classic French dessert, and we have a difference of opinion on what it is. Every recipe book I have on the subject (and I have many) show the identical thing. A picture is worth a thousand words, and I don't believe in "borrowing" pictures, so I created my own, i.e. I made a Pithiviers and took pictures. Before you even look at them please accept my apologies for the look as I am by no means a pastry chef (I am better at cakes). I am not a chef or even a souschef (I am an engineer), and the work is a bit on the crude side. In any case, here are the pictures of before baking, after baking, and cut open.

BTW it was delicious !
