Cranberry, Raspberry and Blueberry Wonder Woman Pie

Cranberry, Raspberry and Blueberry Wonder Woman Pie

I started a new section in the sidebar of this blog titled 'Fun Foods'.

Not that all food isn't fun—because it certainly is! As of late, I have found myself gravitating towards foods that are more "nerdy",  geometrically pleasing or delve into my graphic design background. Plus, these types of foods are a lot of fun to make and the feedback is incredibly more enthusiastic.

Pro-tip: If someone you know loves a certain character or game or movie etc., and you bake them something related to that favorite character, game, movie, they will be so overcome with joy you cannot help but smile as you make their unexpected dreams come true.

Lemon Yogurt Cake with Blueberry Compote

In my last post, I talked about Raspberry Muffins and my disappointment in I forgetting the crumb topping.

So, to make up for it, and to appease Kristen, I made this Lemon Yogurt Cake with Blueberry Compote. 

For a while, we were in a phase of eating blueberry compote over yogurt. It makes morning yogurt seem so much more fancy than when it just has granola on it.

Swirling things into loafs is tons of fun (see here for another example), so I decided to bring back the compote and swirl it into this Lemon Yogurt Cake. You know if it's from Ina, it's going to be extra fabulous.
