Each year, Mr. Luxury, Little S, and I celebrate Easter with a special springtime dinner. We also have friends whose springtime celebrations include Passover*, Nowruz, Whitsunday, and even just a big party for the vernal equinox. Whatever you are celebrating this spring, I hope you feel the wonder of the earth coming back to life all around you. This is the small cake I love to make for our Easter dessert, and it’s seriously the very best carrot cake I have ever tasted. Use it for any (small) party you want!
Ah, the elegance of a small, silky pie. Thank you to Archimedes of Syracuse and to Geometry teachers everywhere for sponsoring today’s deliciousness. As you will see all over the cooking world, today, March 14 (3.14) is dedicated to all things pi(e). Similar to the cakes from my Small Cake Series, a small pie can be shared if you wish. But it certainly doesn’t have to be: leftover pie for breakfast is a lovely indulgence.
