This was a birthday cake from a while ago but I really wanted to wait till Halloween to share it with you all.
We have a citrus tree that has fruit on it all year round. We still aren’t quite sure if it is an orange, grapefruit or some other unidentified citrus so lets just call them oranges. They make great freshly squeezed juice and are also excellent in cakes.
Citrus syrup cakes are great because you can’t really ruin them, even if they get left in the oven a bit long you pour syrup over it and end up with the most delicious moist cake. In true PhD baker form I like to take it a step further and drizzle a citrus glaze over the top. It adds a little crunch and even more citrus zing to the cake.
