To celebrate Theresa’s investiture and Christmas!


The cake

45g breadcrumbs

200g caster sugar

100g ground almonds

1.5 tsp baking powder

200 ml sunflower (or other) oil

4 eggs

zest of 2 oranges and 1 lemon

The syrup

Juice of 2 oranges and 1 lemon

85g caster sugar

Malagasy spices to taste e.g. vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper corns (3-4)

1.      Mix the dry ingredients.

2.      Beat well the eggs, oil and zests
3.      Mix all together. 
4.      Bake at 190c for about 40 minutes (start with a cold oven).
5.      While the cake is baking, make the syrup by simmering all the ingredients for about 10 minutes.
6.      Strain out the spices
7.      When the cake is nearly cool, pierce all over with a toothpick and drizzle in the syrup.

The cake keeps well because it's so moist but I've never known it last to the next day!

Serve and celebrate!
