I’m really excited for our 15th bake at the The Home Bakers event as we’re baking a fat free / guilt free cake aka sponge cake . Mimi of Mimi Bakery House has selected an orange frosted sponge cake & it’s an awesome choice as now it’s orange season . THB is organized by Joy of Kitchen Flavour & we will be baking every single recipe from Lou Seibert Pappas ‘s cookbook - Coffee Cakes . For full recipe please do hop over to Mimi . And for more of this lovely bake from THB members HERE .
Joke Of The Day - When I told my sons that I was baking a sponge cake, my sons broke into laughter & said “ You mean a spongebob cake??” I was like “ Huh?!! What?” . My youngest son said “ You know, Sponge Bob the cartoon !” LOL I didn’t see that coming !
For full recipe of this citrus sponge cake HERE
I've added 1 tsp of orange blossom water in the batter & made an orange syrup for the topping .
To make orange syrup:
2 organic oranges / few slices for topping deco
50 ml water
Combined all ingredients in a saucepan & let it simmer for 3 mins . Then add in orange slices & simmer another 3 mins . Let to cool a bit before pouring over cake .
Happy Woman's Day
