Welcome back! Itâ€™s Day 6 of Dancing Deerâ€™s CEO Trish Karterâ€™s 1,500 mile bicycle trek from Atlanta to Boston, which she is doing to raise awareness for family homelessness. Hopefully youâ€™re following her progress on Dancing Deerâ€™s website.
When I started this crazy adventure, I had no idea that Dancing Deer was more than just brownies. At my local Whole Foods, all I had ever seen was Dancing Deer brownies, to point where sometimes I want to call the company Dancing Deer Brownies instead of just Danicng Deer.
With that being said, sometimes what you don’t know can hurt you. As I found out when I learned Dancing Deer makes cake. Which I turned into
Grilled Meyer Lemon and Raspberry Cake
At first, I just wasn’t sure if I was going to like meyer lemon and raspberry cake. While I do like lemon cake, I’ve found that the addition of fruit (especially raspberries) can overwhelm the flavors of the rest of the ingredients in the cake.
Ha! I had no reason for concern. None.
Quite literally the meyer lemon and raspberry cake was head and shoulders the best cake my wife and I have ever tasted. It was moist, delicious, crumbly…it was simply divine. So it was with a sense of awe that I struck out to improve it.
