The Domestic Demi-Goddess strikes again: chocolate orange cake

03/02/2008

The mothership (since that's what I call myself these days) volunteered for cake duty on grandparents day next week at school, conveniently forgetting that this would also require some baking.

Did a test drive today on a chocolate orange cake by Nigella Lawson. My undying loyalty continues.

What a bunch of eggs, ground almonds, sugar, oranges, cocoa, baking powder, butter and bicarbonate won't create. It tastes good too. Gluten-free. At least I won't be poisoning anybody.

Right out of the oven:


The finished product:

I'm still considering something ganache-like to steep it in, but I think I'll leave it at this for the moment.

I'll give you one tip: it is moist. And good. And I've already had two slices. And it's so good that I'm even contemplating it for breakfast.

I just made page 171 for dinner.
(Housemate is doing the washing up. :-))
Can I send a taxi to pick up a slice of your cake for dessert please?
(If there’s any left that is.)

@E.S.: given that my neighbour is on a diet, my SO is still in the hospital and can only eat small quantities, there's still a lot left... Which reminds me, I should go have another slice right now before I write up my L Word comments.

Eek! E.S. was my comment. I’m already preparing my new blog with a new identity and you weren’t supposed to see that yet! I am clearly suffering from a multiple personality disorder… and we still need cake...

I can keep a secret, dear Fresco. The cake will be eaten today.

But I have to make another batch for 13/02. Taxi Antwerp-Aalst: quite the cost, no?
