First, she shows Julia how t o make the batter, which is a traditional American pound cake recipe, made richer with the addition of creme fraiche . She varies the first recipe by using hazelnut flour as an ingredient, and tops it with a do llop of Italian cream cheese flavored with grapa wine. Then she makes a couple of miniature upside-down cakes, using a rhubarb and caramel t opping on one and rose geranium leaves on another.
