I tasted this cake the last time I visited my friend Angela when I was in Toowoomba. It is delicious. So, I decided to make it for Maberly Quilters last week when I was on supper. The great thing about it is that it is gluten free, so all my family can eat it and it is just so good.
The recipe can be found on the CSR website but there are a couple of modifications. Instead of 2 oranges I used 3 seedless mandarins. These I boiled 3 times but still found them a little bitter so added extra caster sugar until they were sweet enought. Because I didn't want to carry a big cake all the way into town I made 4 small cakes which I cooked for about 30 minutes.
Served with a big dollop cream it is delicious. (I can't stop saying that word.) But be aware it is also moorish so just one slice is enough at morning tea. Then you can have another for afternoon tea!
