online bake sale for japan In the aftermath of the disaster in Japan, Sabrina Modelle (The Tomato Tart) dialed in her fundraising and baking skills and turned to her fellow food bloggers to form an Online Bake Sale benefiting Second Harvest Japan, a food bank currently responding to the needs of people displaced by the earthquake and tsunami.

There are nearly 90 bloggers from 9 countries around the world participating in the bake sale. I am so proud to be a part of such an incredible community. Check out the growing list of bakers (and, if you’re interested in jumping on, it’s not too late).

I’ll be donating a Blood Orange Marmalade Tart. I learned how to make this gorgeous tart from Joyce Goldstein, who adapted it from a recipe called Crostata di Marmellata delle Suore Trappiste, served at the Vineria Cozzi in Bergamo Alta, Italy. The tart gets its interesting name because it is filled with orange marmalade made by the Trappist nuns. In this version, we use blood oranges for a stunning presentation and floral flavor, “like an orange mixed with a rose.” It is divine…and now you can have the chance to taste for yourself come March 30th!
