Ok, it’s been a while since I’ve reported on my Zumbo attempts in the kitchen (see Be your own Zumbo in the kitchen). After the brownies I was on a baking high and thought I’d tackle the delicate Macaron but my confidence was quickly shattered as the mixture turned into a a flat sticky mess in the oven and had to be disposed of thoughtfully (along with my dignity) in the garbage!
Failing miserably with his Macarons I was a little tentative to tackle anything else but like all good girl-guides I didn’t let one failure get the better of me and I got right back on the kitchen saddle and had a go at Adriano Zumbo’s Flourless Orange Cake and by-jingo I’m glad I did! What a winner of a cake it is!
It comes complete with a lovely orange glaze that you make up to spread over the cake – and if that’s not enough – there is also an orange jelly you make up as well and slice to decorate your cake with too!
This cake is moist and delicious, beautifully orangey in flavour, and easy to make. And, what’s more it doesn’t taste like a packet cake!
So, next time you want to wow your guests, or treat yourself, I can certainly recommend you give this Zumbo a red-hot-go! Two out of three aint bad!
