what? bread?

a blog about making bread at home

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.orangecrunch
