Nutmeg Recipes

Nutmeg evokes the exotic-and the familiar with sweet and savory recipes from the article Sweetness and Light in the December issue of SAVEUR.

Nutmeg Cake

While nutmeg adds a subtle note to many desserts, it claims center stage in this traditional spiced Armenian cake. We based this recipe on one in A World of Cake by Krystina Castella (Storey Publishing, 2010). See the Nutmeg Cake Recipe
