This cake is amazing. And it’s gluten free. I’ve made it twice so far this year and people always rave about it. I think all my soaping has really upped my baking skills. Check out the recipe over at Bon Appetit.  Try a few of my recommendations below.

  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND: replace 1 tbsp of sugar meant for sprinkling the top of the cake before baking with about 1/4-1/2 tsp really good sea salt (or fleur de sel or lavender infused) or leave it out all together.
  • add about 1-2 tbsp of bourbon to the whipped cream/mascarpone topping (you could do vanilla instead of the bourbon – 1/2 tsp).
  • add 1/2 tsp of cardamom to recipe (I love ALL things cardamom – hello Grapefruit CardamomLotion)

    Any other recommendations out there? What is your go-to dessert?

Well, there’s something for everybody!

Bring on the refreshing salads and anything you can char up on the grill… it’s summertime! There’s something just so nostalgic about the foods we eat during this season that evoke memories of warm nights and being surrounded by friends and family. I’d argue that the best recipes for this time of year are the simplest and highlight the season’s ripest ingredients- like fresh and sweet tomatoes!
