Today I’m serving up a simple compote, courtesy of the always-brilliant Smitten Kitchen. It pairs beautifully with some leftover lemon curd, made at a class at one of my favorite local bakeries, Two Tarts. It also helps disguise a rather disappointing cake, which I won’t call out, but it suffices to say that even in the presence of the magic words “Greek yogurt,” I’ll be sticking to butter-based pound cake types, rather than oil. Luckily the curd and the compote are fragrant, because this cake smells a little bit like French fries.
PS: Stevie Wonder makes excellent baking music.
