Recipes from my test kitchen
Orange & Thyme Olive Oil cake
225g plain spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
220g caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp finely chopped thyme
3 oranges, grated, pith removed & sliced into 1cm rounds
1 lemon, grated , we only need the peel
3 eggs (55geach)
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
60ml soy milk
180ml extra virgin olive oil
Preheat your oven to 190° Fan Forced.
Use a 22cm non stick pan and line the base with your orange slices.
Sift together the flour & baking powder.
Rub together, with your fingers, the sugar, thyme, grated oranges & lemon.
Lightly beat the salt with the eggs, adding the milk then the oil, then mix through the sugar mix and finally fold through the flour.
Pour the mix into your pan and bake in the middle rack of your oven for 35 - 40 minutes.
Serve with a little creme fraiche, or chantily cream.
This cake actually tastes better the day after.
