A slimmer Smith Island Cake?
Apparently they're continuing to put out The Baltimore Sun without me. Hmph! My editor, Sarah Kelber, sends this request related to a story someone is writing for the Taste section. It has to do with that Maryland treat with the high frosting-to-cake ratio. Here's Sarah. LV
Last week, Health magazine named Smith Island Cake one of the “Nation’s 50 Fattiest Foods.”
With nine or 10 thin layers of cake alternated with chocolate icing, the official state dessert seems destined for fattiness (26 grams of fat in the recipe the magazine analyzed, to be precise).
But we never shy away from a challenge.
We’re looking for ways to give Smith Island Cake a slightly healthier twist. Sure, this will never be health food, but if you’ve tweaked the recipe with good results, we’d love to hear from you.
