Soft, sweet, with a crunch
You’ve never had a banana cake like this before. Deliciously sweet, with a nutty crunch and boozy hints, the Portis is moist, delicious, and addicting.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The Portis is an ode to an unforgettable cocktail the owner once had on the beach. It was so unforgettable, that they’ve made it their mission to recreate its flavors in a cake! To great success.
This olive oil cake uses the best local bananas, sweet and flavorful. Those bananas are then flambéed in aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which gives the cake vanilla, caramel, and oak flavor notes. Crushed walnuts are added in for a crunch that pleasantly contrasts the moistness of the cake.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
We know it’s difficult to wait when the aromas of the Portis are so appealing. But believe us when we tell you that this olive oil cake gets better with age. Wait a day or two before digging in, as that’s when the flavor really peaks.
Delicious on its own, the Portis is best enjoyed with a cup of coffee. It’s an anytime kind of cake, working well for breakfast, merienda, and dessert. Try it with a big scoop of Kurimu Kinako Vanilla ice cream.
