Oranges are to eat or to make juice out of, right?
Over the last 10 years or so, I’ve been lucky enough to have tried food from many different cities/countries and have watched a ton of food shows to feel like I know more than I actually do 🙂 A big part of this ongoing food adventure is learning how ingredients can be used in so many different ways, especially when it’s not something you’ve grown up with. Oranges are one such ingredient. They can be used in so many sweet as well as savoury ways and are a part of many different cuisines. They are used in sauces, with protein, in dessert, in salads – you name it. I’ve used them in brownies before and that chocolate and orange combination was fantastic!
This time I’ve used them in their simplest form to make an easy orange cake with a light orange syrup. Buttery, spongey, orangey and delicious!
