Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!

 

Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.

 

I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Almond, Rose and Orange Cakes

Delicious and delicate little cakes. Perfect for an afternoon tea or for a party table.


MAKES 6/9

5 Minutes Preparation Time

20 Minutes Baking Time


I N G R E D I E N T S

60g Butter

100g Caster Sugar

2 Eggs

90g Ground Almonds

70g Self Raising Flour


1/2 Orange (Juice)

70g Icing Sugar


Rose Petals



M E T H O D

- Preheat the oven to 180c.

- In a bowl, beat the sugar and butter together.

- Add in the eggs, one at a time.

- Now, add the almonds and flour a little at a time and fold through.

- Grease a cupcake tin with oil or butter.

- Scoop 1 heaped tablespoon of the batter into the tray.

- Bake in the oven for 18 minutes.

- Remove and allow to cool slightly. Then once cooled, remove from the tray and lay on a wire rack.

- Squeeze the juice out of the orange and mix with the icing sugar to create an icing paste. You want it rather thick.

- If your cakes have domed, then cut the peak off.

- Turn the cake over so the base is the top. Dollop a tablespoon of icing onto the cake and use a spike or knife to drag the icing over the edges. (see video)

- Sprinkle the rose petals on top and ENJOY!
