It will only take you some 10-15 minutes to prepare this cake, then leave it in the oven for about an hour. It combines the sweet-bitter flavor of orange peel jam and the distinct taste of walnuts – try it with tea or milk! You’ll need: 2 eggs, 2 tbsp orange peel jam, 6-7 tbsp sugar, 12 tbsp flour, 100 ml milk, 100 ml oil, baking soda and walnuts. Optional: raisins, rum.
- Mix eggs with sugar.
- Gradually add milk and oil. Add baking soda (1 tsp dissolved in a bit of lemon juice).
- Incorporate flour. If you’re using a bit of rum, incorporate now, as well as the raisins. You can soak the raisins into rum for a few minutes then toss in the batter.
- Pour into pan.
- Sprinkle with walnuts and the orange peel jam. To release the flavor of walnuts, you can roast them beforehand in a frying pan for some 5 minutes on the stove. If the batter is quite thick, the walnuts and the orange jam won’t sink in.
- Put in the oven (350F) for one hour (or until golden).
