Last year in our search for regional desserts, we discovered orange slice cake, one of the oddest–I mean, most unique–concepts I’ve heard of. Read about it here: http://bit.ly/awXf8E
On that note, a couple noteworthy regional sweets were featured in the new issue of “Food Network” magazine.
Avocado pie is a California thing, a different take on key lime pie (and if you get a store-bought graham crust, it’s a no-cook recipe!). This is suppposed to be a bit more cheesecake-like than your typical key lime pie. Sounds like a good picnic food. (Click on photo for recipe.)
Hummingbird cake is a southern confection–looking at the recipe, it sounds like a cross between carrot/spice/banana cake. I may be trying this one in the near future. (Click on photo for recipe.)
