Berry Crisp Cake

Serious Eats María del Mar Sacasa 1 comment

This cake is rich and tangy with mascarpone cheese, spiked with sweet white wine. Once baked, the berries sink into the cake and burst, becoming a built-in layer of fresh jam, while the crumble melts and crisps into a cookie-like crust that provides wonderful textural contrast. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or at room temperature with a cup of steaming coffee in the morning. More

Through the magic of a buttery cake batter the apricots became perfectly sweet and and creamy during the baking with just the right amount of tartness. More
