  1. Boil 2 oranges in water for nearly 2 hours until completely soft.
  2. Once cool quarter them and discard the pips and the process the orange to a pulp.
  3. Beat 6 eggs in a large bowl, and then mix in 250 gms of ground almonds, 250 gms of sugar, 1 tsp baking powder and the orange pulp.
  4. Pour in a greased and lined deep round cake tin.
  5. Bake at 190 degree c for about 50 mins.
  6. And if you are lazy and short of time like me microwave the oranges!
  7.  Enjoy the cake warm at tea with some cream or compote- it’s musky, dense and spicy in character.

Midnight dessert craving…

Tuesday 23 June 2009 | Posted by Kishi | desserts

You know how sometimes you have craving for sweets in the middle of the night after a long day. I am having one of those cravings. I decided to make something super simple…

Ganache can be of three types: Soft, medium and hard depending on where and how it’s used. I made a medium ganache, two parts chocolate and one part heavy cream. If you are in the experimental mood try whipping this ganache after it’s cooled down…will be more light and airy. A dessert cant get simple than this.

Method: Chop the chocolate, pour boiling cream over and mix with a spatula till smooth. To make it a bit different I add orange zest to my cream to give it a tang.

And I enjoyed my mid night snack of left over fudge cake with some ganache and orange candy that I got from INA market.

Can it get better than this…hell yeah!! I added a scoop of vanilla ice cream 🙂
