more on the citrus theme
not one for the younger members of our families. Mine’s away with cubs this weekend, despite the snow, sleeping inside I should add. I wanted something that was sweet but not chocolate based as I’ve O.D.’d on chocolate flapjacks this week.
Crunchy Citrus Cake – another one from Pat Ring’s book. Ingredients – lemon, orange, sunflower oil, caster sugar, eggs, semolina, baking powder, ground almonds, almond extract. Topped with zest and Grand Marnier (although you can choose a mascarpone topping instead).
Couldn’t be easier, just weigh and mix with a blender or spoon, and uses sunflower oil which is a good thing in this weather as the butter is just as hard outside the fridge as in it! I did give it 10 minutes longer in the oven than stated in the recipe.
