Chocolate heart cake with raspberry buttercream Chocolate heart cake with raspberry buttercream By vanilla bean 02/14/13 22:33 My daughter has been dreaming of a Valentine's cake for weeks, after seeing a heart-shaped cake in this little cookbook she received for Christmas. It was sort of a last minute affair regardless of all her planning and sketching; I was up late last night...
Honey Cake with Fleur De Sel Honey Cake with Fleur De Sel By vanilla bean 02/09/13 18:42 The days aren't discarded or collected, they are bees that burned with sweetness or maddened the sting: the struggle continues, the journeys go and come between honey and pain. No, the net of years doesn't unweave: there is no net. They don't fall drop...
An everyday pear cake An everyday pear cake By vanilla bean 12/05/12 22:08 Pear Buttermilk Cake adapted from Smitten Kitchen I made this cake with 3/4 cup all-purpose flour and 3/4 cup spelt flour, and reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. Our family loved it, but if I were serving it to guests, I think I would make it as the recipe originally...
A carrot cake with cream cheese; a parsnip cake with cardamom cream A carrot cake with cream cheese; a parsnip cake with cardamom cream By vanilla bean 11/21/12 02:44 I have named you queen. There are taller than you, taller. There are purer than you, purer. There are lovelier than you, lovelier.

Chocolate ginger bundt cake Chocolate ginger bundt cake By vanilla bean 10/05/12 23:56 I'm terribly afraid of dying. Sometimes it keeps me up at night; I imagine dreadful scenarios of tragedy that I won't share here. In the dark I clutch my husband's hand, making sure he's close; in the dark I tiptoe to the little's rooms to take an extra...
Beet cake with chocolate Beet cake with chocolate By vanilla bean 05/14/12 13:00 My four year old daughter anxiously turns to me at the dinner table, exclaiming, 'Are my teeth purple yet? Are they purple?' She is grinning, shoveling more and more beets into her mouth, swishing the small pieces around her teeth and tongue and lips, hoping...
Chocolate cake with basil buttercream Chocolate cake with basil buttercream By vanilla bean 05/04/12 04:06 One hot summer evening over ten years ago, I tried basil and chocolate together for the first time. It is a memory that hasn't left me, and I find the combination of these two ingredients almost perfection. Since that night I have been frequently day-dreaming...
Cardamom pound cake Cardamom pound cake By vanilla bean 04/18/12 22:04 Early Monday morning I found myself in the kitchen, baking this pound cake. It was almost as if I didn’t have a choice; my mind and heart had been there all night, anyway, stirring and sifting flour, breaking eggs and pouring cream. The evening before our...
Cream cheese coffee cake Cream cheese coffee cake By vanilla bean 02/08/12 14:55 I love getting that phone call. 'Could you bring something? Something sweet?' I try not to sound too eager as I accept, excited to be baking with a purpose, for someone near and dear. I brought this coffee cake to a baby shower; a room filled with good...

Blood orange olive oil loaf cake Blood orange olive oil loaf cake By vanilla bean 01/19/12 04:13 I'm sort of obsessed with blood oranges. As I am immersed in gray winter days, the shock of bright purple segments hiding under that rusty orange peel brings light and warmth into our little home. This loaf cake is the perfect vessel for these oranges....

Candy cane cake Candy cane cake By vanilla bean 12/13/11 21:42 This past week we celebrated my daughter's birthday. The last two years I've let her 'design' her own cake, meaning she gets to pick colors and flavors and a basic theme, and I try to make something not quite as elaborate. Last year was a purple cake, and...

Red wine chocolate cake Red wine chocolate cake By vanilla bean 12/10/11 19:02 I don't think I've ever finished a bottle of red wine. I'm one of those fruity-white-wine-spritzer kind of girls, and to the horror of some I have been known to 'brighten up' my dark reds with a little 7up [should I be admitting this? Probably not]. So...
