This eye catching cake recipe comes from Jane’s Patisserie and once seen, I couldn’t wait to make it. Glad to say, it didn’t disappoint and it’s a real treat for the eyes.
If you want to lean on the healthy side, then serve with some crème fraiche and you’re already half way there as honey is used instead of sugar. The use of ginger and the zest of an orange just adds a beautiful edge to this very pretty cake and it’s perfect for serving after a meal, for a Coffee Morning or Afternoon Tea. It’s not a particularly sweet cake, it’s full of flavour but not very sweet so if you like a sweet touch, add a few extra tablespoons of honey to drizzle over the top.
Nothing complicated here, it’s simple to make with lovely results. I added a handful or two of pomegranate on top along with the berries and pistachios.
