Orange Jam and Walnuts Cake

orange_nuts_cakeIt 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.


  1. Mix eggs with sugar.
  2. Gradually add milk and oil. Add baking soda (1 tsp dissolved in a bit of lemon juice).
  3. 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.
  4. Pour into pan.
  5. 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.
  6. Put in the oven (350F) for one hour (or until golden).
