Name the Dessert


THIRD UPDATE: We have a winner! Thanks to everyone for playing! You guys had some great guesses!

SECOND UPDATE: We still do not have a winner. Now, I’m going to give you a huge hint and the first person to correctly guess the dessert will win. Once someone gets it correct, I will close the comments and post about the cupcake. Ready??

Here we go: The dessert recipe is found somewhere on Marisa’s blog, The Creative Pot. (Sorry Marisa, you are not eligible to win.)

UPDATE: I still have not received a correct guess. Here’s a hint: The cupcake contains a small amount of jam. If I don’t receive a correct answer by the noon deadline, I’ll give a second hint. Be sure to check back!

My next cupcake is a based on a dessert which is traditionally served with wine made from the same grapes as the bottle of wine in the photo above.

Name that dessert.

All correct guesses by noon central time tomorrow (Thursday, Nov. 19) will be entered to win an OXO prize pack which includes a medium silicone spatula, 11” whisk, and a silicone pastry brush. I personally own the whisk and the pastry brush as well as a slew of other OXO products (my favorite is the jar opener) and can attest to their quality.

Note: If you are a friend of mine and have tasted the cupcakes or simply heard me talking about them, you are ineligible. Sorry.

Second Note: If you want to enter to win an even bigger prize, check out the Challenge Butter Taste of the West Sweepstakes. The connection between OXO and Challenge Butter is what got me these prizes to give to you. More about that later. And, no, this isn’t a hint.

    I’m sure this is wrong but chocolate mousse cupcakes? Maybe thats just wishful thinking.

    Possibly a poached pear dessert (paired with Port)???

    Creme Brulee? That’s probably just wishful thinking too… :)

    I’m going to have to go with the Chocolate Mousse also!

  8. Alejandra says:

    This is probably too obvious to be right, but is it based on Madeira cake?

  9. KBO says:

    Madeira honey cake?

  10. A Madeira cake? Depending on who you ask, it’s either a sponge cake or a pound cake. I’ll take either one! 8-)

    Tiramisu would go well with that wine, but I’m not sure what it’s traditionally served with…

    something with rum!

  20. Riko says:

    I think you’ll be making a fruitcake cupcake.

    Tiramisù usually goes well with dessert wines.

  22. says:

    Is it Almond slice or bakewell slice as call it in the Uk?

  23. says:

    Trifle? Although how in the blazes you could make a trifle cupcake remains to be seen.

  24. Okay, how about English trifle? My other guess is Lamingtons . . . after that, I’m stumped!

  25. Darryl says:

    A type of Christmas Pudding (cake).

    I don’t know how many times we can guess, but maybe an almond cake like sopa durada? I have had it at portugese restaurants before.

  30. Bryna says:

    CrepeCakes Gateau? A la Julia Child?

  31. Ammy Lea says:

    Well apparently it’s not Madeira Honey Cake, but are you looking for the “real name” of that? Bolo de mel? Or maybe Teacake, or Pound Cake

    strawberry fool….the dessert, you know…
