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.
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 other party recipes, but got derailed. Completely foiled. Those posts will be coming soon and they’ll still be perfect for all the summer parties yet to come.
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.
