It’s been a minute since I’ve been on here talking about cake. Why? My absence on the blog is on account of a handful of reasons. While I wish I could blame my delayed post entirely on the gorgeous weather outside, time spent with friends, eating on patios, playing with my pup Martha and decorating my new space, I’d be omitting some of the truth.
I’ve mentioned or alluded to my favorite cake of the project so far several times. Very early on, week 8, I made the most divine plum pistachio and lemon cake from what’s become one of my favorite food blogs, The Brick Kitchen. I loved this cake so much, I’ve made my own adaptations and continued the unconventional trend of topping my cakes with fruit rather than frosting.
This week’s cake gave week 8 a run for it’s money. Ok, ok week 8 still might be my favorite but this week’s rhubarb, candied-hazelnut and buckwheat cake was so so good.
