New and Fresh for Late Summer
It's late Summer and we're taking advantage of some fresh, local fruit for two new additions to our pastry line-up.
The first is a fresh peach sour cream coffee cake with pecan crumble filling. We serve single slices from a large 28 cm diameter cake or single serving mini-cakes (shown in photo) baked in decorative Euro-cups. Either way, these pastries make great snacks for breakfast or mid-afternoon. As always, this pastry is not too sweet, but packed with flavor.
Our second addition is an Italian plum crostata. The rustic crust is made with butter, cream, eggs and whole wheat flour. The filling features sliced Italian plums tossed with sugar, butter, lemon zest and fresh thyme. Baked to a deep, hearty finish, the crostata is packed with flavor. The addition of thyme lends an unusual and earthy note. Though rough in appearance, these pastries make an excellent and fancy dessert to end a fine home-cooked meal. Just add a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for a really grand finale.
