My imaginative and prescient for this recipe was easy: broccoli bushes rising out of a loaf. The picture itself was impressed by an iconic {photograph} within the e-book Breakfast, Lunch, Tea by Rose Carrarini, displaying a cross part of a cake the place broccoli spears are seemingly suspended inside batter. I’ve truly by no means made Rose’s broccoli cake, however I knew I needed to re-create this whimsical broccoli forest. Savory desserts deserve extra love, in my view. I want them over savory muffins or scones, as they keep moister in loaf type. They’re additionally a beautiful deal with for brunch or a light-weight lunch, nice in lunchboxes and are transportable, too, so take into account them for picnics or gatherings.
