Week 137:

RECIPE OF THE WEEK FROM HIGHFIELD HALL & GARDENS STAFF, GAIL BLAKELY

Adapted from from Chez Panisse Desserts by Lindsey Shere, this is a fabulous cake from David Lebovitz’s website. It’s really quite simple, one of those “you’ll never guess how simple” considering how absolutely delicious it is. In the winter I serve it with a simple fruit compote (oranges and blueberries) or some warmed cherry pie filling. In in the spring it goes well with fresh strawberries–carry it into summer and add whatever fruit you have that’s ripe. Or, do what I do: leave it on your kitchen counter and keep cutting slivers (for the cook, of course) as you pass it by.
