Warm moist cake, full of citrus flavor. Now I am hungry again! This cake is simple to make, and would be perfect for dessert, or an afternoon snack. The original recipe comes from the show “Extra Virgin” on The Cooking Channel, and is called “Schiacciate Alla Fiorentina.” I made a few changes to the original recipe, and added a few healthy additions. This Orange Cake would be perfect to take to any Summer BBQ, or fun gathering!
This month the Recipe Redux group are sharing treasured cookware or kitchen tools. I decided to share more than one treasured item we hold dear in our kitchen. There is a rolling pin, and wooden potato masher my husband’s Grandmother used. Two special black bowls my husband’s Grandfather loved using for his shredded wheat (these are probably a hundred years old.) The crystal plate is a special plate from my Great Grandmother. I have several treasures from my Grandmother and my Great Grandmother. There is something about family treasures that make the recipes special. Probably because a little love is added to each recipe!
You could use any variety of oranges, whatever is in season is perfect.
Gorgeous plate for any slice of cake. Every time I use this plate, I feel happiness and just want to smile!
