I've been looking for another cake-ish dessert that I would feel comfortable making, serving, taking to potlucks, and, of course, eating. It will always be something with fruit; I have never been fond of making or eating the double chocolates whatever. Given a choice, dessert is all about fruit -- on its own, crisped, crumbled, scattered, triple berried .. whatever. It's all good.
So, after some research, I have found an all-occasion Rhubarb Crumble Cake, inspired by Smitten Kitchen. That now makes two cake-ish desserts in my repertoire (Apple Charlotka was previously posted). Certainly still a long way from the BH cake-making expert level. Fondant anyone? :)
Smitten Kitchen clearly loves making 'every day cakes', as Deb Perelman calls them. She has posted many delightful recipes and photos for single layer cakes/crumbles ranging from Raspberry Buttermilk cake (blueberries, blackberries, etc work equally well, May 19, 2009) to Blueberry Boy Bait Cake (July 6, 2009), ? not sure genesis of name but it is a very handsome cake indeed).
