Lemon Cake, Drunkies & Grilled Cheese w/Duck
Posted by Shannon on 04/14/2011
I believe it was around 1:30 a.m. when Jane declared, “Hey, quit cake-blocking me!” Fork duels ensued.
This delicioso, sweet slice of cake came fresh & direct from local legend, Susie Cakes, in Manhattan Beach. My witty, lovely friend Amber brought a piece over to Jane’s, knowing full well we’d need something sugary and buttery when we got home from our night out together drinking.
The springtime specialty bakery confection offering of the month is “LEMON LAYER CAKE. Moist vanilla cake filled with lemon curd. Topped with vanilla buttercream.” Ala Rachel Zoe… I Die.
Like the chunky baking sugar that top blueberry muffins, this cake is entombed with sugar that makes an audible crunch as you eat a particularly frosted piece.
Also worth mentioning were the goings-ons of earlier that night at Bouzy’s, the gastropub arm of Chez Milange … if you can’t hold your Friday night Happy Hour (9pm-close)complete with $4 cocktails and/or beers ladies…. stay home.

Our 2nd favorite moment of the night, after the open-mouthed snoozer, was the grilled cheese sandwich made of brie, a hefty portion of sliced duck & fig jam, all nestled between raisin bread. Savory & sweet y’all… try it before you knock it!
