It’s not often that you find desserts made with bay leaves. But they do exist, for example: ice cream and poached pears. A wonderful example of using bay leaves in baking is this Orange & Bay Leaf Pound Cake. In this recipe, the butter and the sour cream batter are infused with bay leaves, which serves as a nice contrast to a sweet orange glaze, made with orange juice, zest and liquor. It’s a recipe from the Arce blog. Click on image for the recipe!
