Sweet and Simple: Vanilla Cornmeal Cake with Poached ClementinesElizabeth Stark
This lovely vanilla-infused cornmeal cake is proof that a well-made cake doesn’t need frosting to be a delight. With a nutty cornmeal-flecked crumb, real vanilla beans, and bright citrus flavor, this cake has a rustic texture that really sets it apart from ordinary cakes. And, the rustic crumb is the perfect vehicle for the sophisticated and understated flavors of vanilla-poached clementines. They have a gentle citrus tang that’s offset by notes of real vanilla. Topped with poached clementines and their light, citrusy syrup, this moist and pleasantly sweet dessert is sure to please the entire family.
