In Red Hook, "among the forests, beaches and rolling hills," Baked bakes cakes, cookies, brownies, and pies "that pay homage to classic American desserts." Read the promotional copy on the back of the menu, and you might say that the corn is growing awfully tall; try the coffee cake and you'll take that back. Beneath a sweet, very cinnamony layer of crumbs is a body nearly as rich as pound cake, marked by a thin vein of chocolate. Boy, that's good.
The coffee cake ($2.50) is set out on Saturday only; don't count on finding it Sunday morning.
