The Cracker: Toasted Fruitcake Slices

The Cracker: Toasted Fruitcake Slices

February 1, 2015

Well, I tried to make crackers with my left over fruit cake. I cut 1/16″ slices. ; I set the oven to the convection setting at 200 degrees, and I put the slices on my perforated tray. Then I baked them for about 30 minutes.

Being that the cracker is a bit sweet, it paired beautifully with this pungent, strong brie, but camembert or sharp cheddar is also an option. The sweetness would contrast nicely with something tart and/or spicy. Or they can remain dessert-ish and would be a good crunchy addition to vanilla ice cream, or yogurt or something else. What do you think?

  • WHAT ARE THE ALPHA BAKERS? : Here’s how it works: once a week, for the next two years, 25 Alpha Bakers commit to baking their way through every recipe of Rose Levy Beranbaum’s newly published The Baking Bible. Each week we post our experiences on our blog sites: our successes, our failures, our likes and dislikes. The recipes are scheduled in advance so that everyone is baking the same recipe at the same time. No recipes can be shared in my Alpha Bakers Baking Bible posts due to publishing restrictions enforced by the publisher, but if you love to bake, this is a must-have book. You can see other tutorials for the same recipe at the following link The Baking Bible Alpha Bakers at http://rosesalphabakers.blogspot.ca/.
