Every so often we come across a little gem for foodies while wading through the muck of Facebook. This week, we spotted something on bestselling author and former Phoencian  Laurie Notaro's FB page we just had to share. And it involves C-A-K-E...

​Wednesday's a pretty tough day for 9-to-5ers. Two days left until the weekend. Sigh. And Wednesday night event pickings are limited, so you're likely stuck home watching reruns of this past weekend's Food Network episodes. It's enough to make you want to stuff your face with a decadent cheesecake or something.

That's where Laurie Notaro comes in. Every Wednesday (ok, every few Wednesdays...she IS a famous writer after all, so she forgets sometimes), Notaro pimps a different cake recipe on her Facebook page. Everyone loves cake, right? Even if you mentally just said 'no,' we just might sway you after you take a peek at the food porn which accompanies today's "Cake Wednesday" pick -- a mouthwatering Cappuccino Fudge Cheesecake from Smitten Kitchen

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
