Preakness: The Pimlico Cake
Have you ever had Pimlico Cake? This little piece of nostalgia originated from the now-closed Pimlico Hotel restaurant in Baltimore. I have enjoyed my share of Pimlico cake and luckily found the perfect place to get a slice. So what does it taste like and where can you find it? Atwater’s locations makes a version of this hometown favorite. Ned at Atwater’s says, “this is a nice spring time dessert, a light cake with a history”. So what is the Pimlico Cake? It reminds me a little, of a Boston Cream Pie.
The original recipe called for a yellow chiffon layer cake filled with Bavarian custard and iced with a rich chocolate frosting. I have called Atwater’s and reserved a few slices for later today.
