Wondrous Words Wednesday

July 8, 2015

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I found a few words in The Cake Therapist by Judith Fertig.

1. genoise – “That’s when the classic genoise batter bloomed into the most beautiful, aromatic coral.”

Genoise is a sponge cake containing butter and leavened by stiffly beaten eggs.


2. dimity – “I was about to ask ‘What’s dimity?’ but they settled back in, and I dashed out again before Mom could ask me any questions I’d rather not answer.”

Dimity is a sheer, usually corded, cotton fabric of plain weave in checks or stripes.


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    I would love to consistently write down new-to-me words in my reading. I do it sporadically, but not every book. I love Wondrous Words.

    So…Genois would be similar to a Twinkie?

    I had to think for a minute, but I recognized dimity from my interior design background, but genoise is new to me.

    I think that “Genoise” sounds a lot better than “sponge cake”!

    Two new words for me, liked genoise.

    Both of these are new to me! Excellent words, Kathy! I have had little time for posting this summer but I hope to return to WWW before too long.

    I knew genoise had something to do with baking but I wasn’t sure.
