For N's birthday, I made a nectarine upside-down cake from the KAF whole grain baking book.  You can use either whole-wheat pastry flour or spelt flour; I went with the former since I still had some from last year that was viable.  Beautiful top, and the cake was moist and slightly nutty.  Using almond extract rather than vanilla (you have the option of either) added an extra something.  Served warm, with vanilla ice cream.  A keeper.

I had a few different fruits that were approaching or at their peak, so:

An apricot, blueberry and fig crisp. One of the simplest desserts, and a great way to use up expiring fruits.

Invited to a Spain-themed dinner on Saturday. Thinking of this orange/almond cake and a chocolate sorbet. Would have worked anyway given the theme but bonus is two of the guests are gluten free.

I make a very similar cake, Tarta de Naranja, from Penelope Casas' The Foods & Wines of Spain.

 

I like it with vanilla ice cream or simply whipped cream with a touch of vanilla - almost Creamsicle like.

I've made that one too but this is quite different. (No oil, almond meal instead of flour...)

Yesterday: mixed berry cobbler with a maple glaze. A "Southern-style" cobbler N adapted from an Epicurious recipe; taken to a small dinner party

Today: chocolate-chocolate chip bread pudding with strawberries and raspberries (we needed to use up old stale bread)
