Recipe Reviews

9th March 2014

friederike from Berlin,

As usual with Ottolenghi, a very reliable recipe that turned out a really nice cake. I used 2 oranges instead of 4 clementines and had forgotten to measure the syrup before adding the syrup, so I just made a very rough estimate, and it could have been a tiny bit more. I'm also wondering if you could also use this cake as a foundation for an upside-down cake - cut oranges (or clementines) in slices and add a little syrup before you cover with batter and bake? Might work. In any case, I served it with mascarpone and some leftover syrup, and I wish I had added a little orange blossom water to the mascarpone.

Worlds better than the curdled Lavender, Orange and Almond Cake I made the day before.
