It’s blood orange season and I wanted to make something which really showed off their lovely flavour and beautiful appearance. I love adding them to my oats at time of year but I thought they deserved something a bit more special to show them off in style.
Plus I’ve had this orange and almond cake in mind for just this occasion. I think it’s perfect, not too sweet which a lovely almond flavour coming through. I made a quick syrup to drizzle on top when the cake had cooled a little while added some moisture and an extra organgy zing. Optional, but adds something extra.
Amazingly my delicious orange and almond cake is both vegan and gluten free, I really don’t think you’d ever know it.
As ever my cake has been taste tested by myself and cake loving Andy, the feedback? Well it was dovoured within a day and a half!
Non Blood Orange version – gorgeously bright!
