Beginning with an all time favourite… Orange and almond cake


I’ve been slow to get this thing off the ground, but thought there’s no better way to do it than with a classic. I can’t say I’ve ever enjoyed an orange and almond meal cake from a cafe, how on earth could they get something so right, so wrong? Normally it’s dry and dense, without the delicious tang I love.

It’s become my signature cake over the last few years and I just can’t ignore it when I need a quick and deeply satisfying cake for a special occasion. The occasion in this instance was my friend Jahna’s birthday. This time I chose to decorate with candied orange peel and a succulent sticky orange syrup.

The result… wholesome decadence!
