I’ve been making little summer cakes all summer long, and one I especially wanted to make was the famous Original Plum Torte by Marion Burros of the New York Times. The Times published this recipe every year from 1983 to 1989 and pledges every year the recipe will be available to all. The more I thought about, though, the more I wanted to forgo the plums and adapt the recipe. So here it is, the Original Blackberry Torte.
I hope everyone had a happy (and safe) 4th of July. I had all kinds of great blogging plans for some spectacular Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes and a few other party recipes but then I got derailed. Completely foiled. That just happens sometimes at the folks. I make something and it disappears before I can even get a photo…let alone formally serve it. I guess that’s a compliment, lol!! Those posts will be coming soon because I plan on posting lots of quick fun summer food, so stay tuned. They’ll still be perfect for all the summer parties yet to come, but in the meantime, enjoy these Blackberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles.
There are shortcakes, and then there are shortcakes, and these Three Berry Shortcakes are the latter – an absolute show stopper of a summer dessert. Wait, this is more than a dessert, this is an extravaganza. Let me put it another way, these Three Berry Shortcakes are going to be the stuff of legend. They’re the recipe that you’re going to make and everyone is going to go on and on about, and then ask for when the next summer rolls around.
