Recipe: Chèvre Orange Pound Cake

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

RedwoodHillFarm_ChevrePoundCake

I am always eager to try new pound cake recipe AND really love the recipe ideas and videos online at IFood TV. So when I saw a pound cake recipe in their newsletter recently, made with ricotta cheese, I immediately knew I had to try the recipe with our fresh chevre. Creamy and smooth with a similar texture to ricotta, I had a feeling Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre would be a good swap.

And was it ever! The cake was dense, moist, with a lovely bright orange fragrance. The flavor was unique and rich and had me longing for a second piece. I brought the cake into the creamery office for a taste test and everyone agreed, soooooo good!

That cake was gone almost immediately.

Recipe: Fruit and Spice Cake

Written by Sharon Bice on . Posted in Recipes

Recipe_FruitAndSpiceCake_Dessert

This lovely cake was adapted from a favorite cookbook of mine, The Heritage of Southern Cooking by Camille Glenn. It is a family heirloom cake of hers and we think it will become a favorite with your family too! The original recipe calls for chopped, cooked, pitted prunes but the spices in it begs for trying pineapple or even cooked, chopped peaches as an alternative. The fruit may vary in the amount of moisture it gives to the batter, so if the batter looks a little loose after adding the fruit of your choice, add a tablespoon or so of flour.

I am showing the cake here with a delicious goat cheese Cream Cheese Frosting which is a perfect complement. This recipe, along with the original recipes suggested frosting, Caramel Kefir, are both in our dessert section.  Remember: Redwood Hill Farm plain goat milk kefir is a perfect substitute for buttermilk in any recipe! The original recipe states that this cake is delicious served without frosting if desired.

Recipe: Use Chèvre Goat Cheese for Classic Cream Cheese Frosting

Recipe_FruitAndSpiceCake_single

Cream Cheese Frosting is a classic for spice or carrot cakes. An alternative we love is substituting Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre goat cheese for the cream cheese.

Chèvre is a fresh, light-textured, rindless goat cheese that is similar to cream cheese but softer and fluffier with only 1/3 of the fat and calories and it’s delicious in recipes like this one! Try this recipe with award-winning Redwood Hill Farm Plain Chèvre the next time you’d like a delicious and unique frosting for your special cake.

LemonKefirSherbet-300px

We’re lucky to have an abundant supply of beautiful Meyer lemons year-round at the farm. This recipe was adapted from Bon Appetit’s Lemon-Buttermilk Sherbet. We replaced the buttermilk with an equal amount of Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Kefir for a bright refreshing treat. It can be made 3 days ahead. Keep frozen.
