Depression Cake

The recipe for this cake has been around since The Great Depression when ingredients were scarce, and made a comeback during World War II due to rationing.

I found gorgeous, green figs in the market, a mango that was perfectly ripe, and strawberries and blueberries – the last vestiges of summer. The combo of fruit, the sweetened cream cheese, and the melted chocolate brushed on the tart shell, made for a tasty tart. Happy birthday, Tony! Continue reading
