Molly Wizenberg, the genius behind Orangette, posted a great story on "everyday cake," an idea she thought of after being inspired by Edna Lewis’s Busy-Day Cake.
The concept is simple, really. Basically, all of us need that "go to" cake. The cake we can rely on to be there on those stressful days when hanging out on your fire escape or lazily sitting on your kitchen counter are on the only things you fathom doing. The Everyday Cake is a basic recipe, and although easy to make, reminds you of the good things in life.
Hop on over to Orangette to read her full blog post and Everyday Cake Recipe. And for those of you wondering, my Everyday Cake is Sour Cream Coffee Cake. Talk about a great way to cap off a day that seems to never end...
Also, if you haven't already, but sure to purchase a copy of Molly's book, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen.
