When we speak about summer desserts it's simple to learn hard on the virtues of cobblers, pie, crisps, and their brethren—these dishes that overflow with fruit and stain shirts with both aplomb and plumbs. However, summer cakes are a lovely thing, baked on the weekend and enjoyed for snack or breakfast or dessert during the days that follow. These, too, are a great foil for the season's ripest produce and freshest flavors. And they get along generously with ice cream, too. Hence bake a cake this weekend, be it stuffed with lined with a bright lemony filling or plums and leave the pie for next day.
