Sugar Rush: Raspberry Upside-Down Cake at Abraço
The olive oil cake and cured olive cookie may be Abraço's claim to fame when it comes to baked goods, but don't forget about the rest of the family. I stopped in this past Sunday morning and was extra delighted with a wedge of raspberry upside-down cake. A simple, though extra-buttery cake base is flipped over a top of sweet and tart puréed raspberry. Plate and pair with a cup of hot tea on the side, and there is little more to desire.
P.S.: For you ricotta fans, don't pass up on the ricotta pain perdu, a slice of sweet battered bread with fresh ricotta folded in-between the sandwiched half.
