Chocolate Armagnac Cake - The Cake That Got Me Fired by Dorie Greenspan & Tuesdays with Dorie


Laurie of Quirky Cupcake formed Tuesdays With Dorie as a form of accountability for baking at least once a week using the cookbook, Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

This week Lyb of And then I do the dishes chose Chocolate Armagnac Cake - The Cake That Got Me Fired on pages 279-281. This cake sounded right up my alley. I was surprised though when I went in search of prunes that they couldn't be had in my neck of the woods without being chocolate covered or stewed. So, since this cake was for hubby's birthday yesterday I let him decide on the substitution. He chose dehydrated pineapple re-hydrated with Malibu rum. This substitution was an excellent choice!
