There are many opinions to be had about the new New York Times paywall—it’s a disaster, it’s the future of journalism, etc. I fully intended to curtail my NYT habit rather than pony up the $15 per month. I can get my new content elsewhere, I thought.
But I had forgotten about the recipes. More specifically, I had forgotten about all the recipes I had bookmarked over the years but not yet tried—and which I could no longer access if I’d hit my 20-article limit. That simply would not do, because I had to make this cake.
All this can be yours, for just $15 per month!
And now, with my full NYT access restored, I can confess that I missed it during the weeks that I was, cheaply, holding out. So thank you, cake. Also, thank you for being tart and unusual and delicious.
