Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte

New at Hyde Park on Duval: Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte!

In honor of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and a longtime friendship, Hyde Park Bar & Grill on Duval will offer slices of Cumberbatch Sweet Tater Torte this week for $4.50 a slice.

Described by Austin American Statesman food writer Addie Broyles as “unique …The cakelike crust on the bottom and top envelop a sweet, smooth and buttery sweet potato filling,” the torte is handmade with love by Jennifer Cumberbatch. In the 1980’s, Jennifer’s husband Ashton played basketball at Enfield Park with Hyde Park Bar & Grill founder Bick Brown. The 3 cooked up the idea of Jennifer using Hyde Park’s commercial kitchen to make her tortes, which are, in her words “baked from the heart: it is memory, a tribute to those who have gone before, love emanating from the work of my hands, and an ode to family fellowship and the community table.”

After a few years of Jennifer baking the pies, and Hyde Park selling them by the slice while she sold the whole, life took another turn for the Cumberbatches and they put Jennifer’s pie business on the back burner in favor of leading a congregation.

But life has a way of coming full circle, especially when it comes to pies. So when Addie Broyles asked Bick about an article she was writing about Jennifer Cumberbatch’s return to sweet potato torte making, a phone call between Jennifer and Bick stirred their interest in having the tasty, historically-based dessert once again at Hyde Park Bar & Grill.
