CHARLIE'S ANGELS - Pomegranate and Hibiscus
While you'd expect pine needle cake to taste bitter or intense, it's actually quite subtle. This cake is not very sweet, but it is really aromatic, like a pine tree; this cake has really subtle citrus notes and reminds of the fresh taste of a floral hoppy beer (rather than a sour citrus). It has a bit of resinous flavor that tastes like the woods in a warm way that's not at all bitter.
Some people like pine needle cake plain with no glazing added, but I love adding a splash of milk a bit of honey glaze. I think both the honey and the milk are lovely. Enjoy your white pine cake with a cup of warm chai spices; these are the perfect complement to pine needle cake on a snowy winter’s day, or when you want a refreshing rustic snack.
