For French Friday with Dorie this week, we used up one of our precious remaining dessert recipes, and made Gateau Basque. This is a traditional Basque region cake made up of two pastry discs sandwiching either cherry jam or pastry cream.
I went the non-traditional route and used delicious Bon Maman raspberry jam for my filling. I used a 9" pan, which made my gateau shorter than in the book, but I thought it was delicious anyway:
This cake was easy and simple to make, and was so good just as it was.
