Creamy, fruity, and bright, this Vermont Creamery Mascarpone Cake was created by Carey Nershi of Reclaiming Provincial. As a lover of farm-to-table recipes and local, sustainable fare, Carey Nershi created this gorgeous and fresh pound cake filled with layers of Vermont Creamery mascarpone, blueberries, and a lemon honey syrup. Known for their incredible goat cheeses, Vermont Creamery is a growing operation that’s been creating high quality dairy products since the mid 80’s--including the cool and refreshing mascarpone used in this original cake.
