Another variation on the Sir Gawain Cake

Amuse Bouches | Aug 8, 2005 06:08 PM

Can't resist posting yet another paean, because I made it this weekend, and the results were pretty stellar. I used nectarines -- not even particularly good nectarines. Added 1 T cardamom to the batter, and tossed the sliced nectarines with lemon juice and sugar and cardamom (next time I'd skip the cardamom with the nectarines.) Replaced milk with buttermilk, used only 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp baking soda.

Gorgeous, and the cardamom and nectarines were a perfect pairing. I liked the spice in the batter too.

No pictures, but it was well-received at the potluck.
