New Bakery: Proof Bakeshop

Inman Park’s newest bakery isn’t just a place to score sweet slices of lemon pound cake, crumbly Linzer cookies, and savory, eggy scones (try the cheddar and chive).

Pear and Pecan Flip Cake

From "A New Turn in the South" by Hugh Acheson. This has been a staple of mine for years, and I never tire of it. I love the baked pears and the pecans together.
