Oh My Goodness! I love Smitten Kitchen.
When Smitten Kitchen posted this cake recipe a few weeks ago I KNEW that I would make it for my mom when she came to visit. It seemed like the perfect Key Lime Pie meets Cheesecake meets Cakes-Appropriate-for-Breakfast!
Since she and her boyfriend are visiting and were here for Mother's Day, I thought "ooo, what better day than Mother's Day"!
But come Mother's Day we were busy playing tourists and had a nice but exhausting day.
Don't worry, on Mother's Day I still made our family's traditional Belgium waffle recipe with icecream and strawberry toppings for breakfast... but the cake didn't happen until today.
Holy Moly. It is divine.
I did edit the blackberry sauce by using half the water and then adding heavy whipping cream to taste. Nor did I drain the seeds. So rather than a running sauce, we had a thicker topping. Almost sorbet-ish.
