QUICK AND EASY RHUBARB CAKE IS AN ON­LINE FA­VORITE

The Tribune (SLO) - - Ticket - BY CHRIS ROSS

Jackie Bruchez of Ocean­side started her food blog, The Sea­side Baker (https://the­seaside­baker.com/), six years ago as a hobby, but it soon be­came her full-time job. She shares her fa­vorite sweet recipes in a new cook­book, “Deca­dent Fruit Desserts.”

A California na­tive, Bruchez finds inspiration for her bak­ing recipes from our long grow­ing sea­son. “Like a kid in a candy store, I of­ten get giddy at the sight of the edible rainbow in front of me at road­side stands and farm­ers mar­kets,” she writes in the book’s in­tro­duc­tion. “All that gor­geous de­li­cious­ness at its peak fresh­ness!”

She says this easy rhubarb cake is one of the most pop­u­lar recipes on her web­site. The recipe was passed down to her from her hus­band’s grand­mother. The French name, gateau vite fait, trans­lates to “quick cake.”
