Bakesale Betty at Temescal Farmer's Market
I just came back from the farmer's market at Temescal this morning, where I got a lemon raisin scone from Bakesale Betty besides other things. I finally got to see the famous "Betty" (with her blue wig) today. She was pretty friendly and knew the names of a lot of her customers. And she was WAYYY younger than I expected her to be.
Anyway, I was a bit disappointed with my scone ... it was very soft and crumbly, and there were a lot more raisins than I wanted (though I shouldn't complain; besides, the raisins were plump and moist.) Oh well, everything's good with some Blue Bottle coffee. Not bad for a Sunday brunch.
I guess I just like scones that a bit firmer (more bread-like than cake-like.) The pear ginger scones I had last time were wonderful, and the ginger cookies were fantastic too! I still wanna go back to try their other cookies (the oatmeal raisin ones seemed good), lemon bars, sticky date pudding ... any other recommendations?
The lemon bars are mindblowing. Best I've ever had and best I think I will ever have.
The sticky date pudding (for about 4-6) -- for dessert and with coffee the next morning.
it comes in a tin with a separate container of caramel suace. You heat the pudding (really,
kind of a moist cake) in the oven, and then drizzle the caramel sauce over it. Pretty darn
