No other cake sings springtime like a freshly baked orange maderia cake – and fits better as the perfect accompaniment to a sunny morning tea.
It seems winter here in New Zealand has seemed to last for so long this year, but at long last, it seems to be warm enough again to step outside and not have to worry about freezing your toes off! Then again, in saying that, it snowed just an hour away from here yesterday – and we’re less than a month away from spring. It’s a little worrying I must say.
However, any baking is good any time of year – but sometimes there are certain elements that just pick up the nature around you. I think a good, firm buttery cake like this one would have to be my favourite, and there’s something about citrus that pairs amazingly well with cake like this – butter goes well too!
Until next time – happy baking!
