Stoned Tart From 'Sweet and Vicious'

Emma Kobolakis 1 comment

What seems like a simple tart is so much more, thanks to the cleverness of this recipe from Libbie Summers' new cookbook, Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude. It bakes up beautifully, a layer of pistachio cream mingling with juice from the mixed selection of fresh fruit. A fat scoop of vanilla ice cream is all that's needed for a finishing touch. More

Emma Kobolakis 10 comments

If the fire-breathing dragon wasn't hint enough, one bite will prove this cake is packing heat. In her recently released cookbook, Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude, Libbie Summers stirs hot pepper extract into a lightly spicy batter, and spikes the cream cheese frosting with spiced pecans. The fruitiness of the pepper works well with the carrot-heavy batter, further enhanced by traditional cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves. More

Paging through Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude, it's easy to see how author Libbie Summers' philosophy can be applied to each recipe. Though malted milk isn't necessarily vicious, it's a welcome contrast to the tried-and-true sweetness of chocolate.
