on saturday, i had the pleasure of delivering a beautiful cake from arizmendi bakery to one of my best friends...
she emailed me last week to ask if i could swing through our former san francisco neighborhood and pick it up on the way to her house.
her message included the following statement:
"it's so good it will blow your eyes off of your head."
she is my soul mate in baked goods madness, thus with these words i knew i was in for heavenly sweetness.
and oh, dear friends. this cake is a rich, sweet, buttery, salty dream.
i shall miss those eyes of mine.
arizmendi bakery is a worker-owned co-op and that specializes in rustic morning pastries, artisan breads, and gourmet pizza...
a list of my favorite menu items...
- pecan rolls
- cheese rolls
- corn-cherry scones
- pizza (different every day: my slice on saturday was topped with shiitake + portabella + button mushrooms and sesame + ginger + garlic vinaigrette)
- chocolate fudge cake + salted caramel frosting
