Christmas is just around the corner. Here is a recipe for Spicy Orange Cake Infused with Honey & Gin Syrup. This cake has everything you need this festive season – warm aroma of fresh oranges and ginger, a touch of cardamom spice, all soaked in luscious syrup with honey and gin. The dream!
Oh… and it is gluten free!
220g Ground Almonds
1 tsp baking powder
3 medium eggs
140g Cane Sugar (or fine brown sugar)
120g Butter (I used salted)
50g Olive oil
2 Large Oranges (zest and juice) – I used Emperor Oranges.
5-10 cardamom pods (depending how strong you want your cardamom aroma and taste to come though)
1 ½ teaspoon ginger powder
5tbsp of Gin (I use Bombay Sapphire)
Decorate with fresh cranberries and rosemary sprigs. Maybe a touch of golden dust just because it’s such a magical time of the year 🙂
