    Yes, thankfully, spring does seem to be breaking through at last, though, for me, anytime would be a good time for moist, pudding-y cakes like this one 🙂 Lovely…

    Hi Caroline . I have to say that was a most delicious cake . A recipe to be used and reused and no problems with leftovers.

    It not only looks good, Rosa, it tastes gorgeous too!Daily Spud: Looking out at the grey skies today, I’m not sure if I was too early at welcoming spring. Still, if March comes in like a lion, it’ll have to go out like a lamb and you’re right, this kind of cake is perfect for all types of of weather.Rachel@fairycakeheaven: I see you were doing your own orange-based baking with those yummy Sunshine Citrus Muffins. I think I might have to invest in that Dorie Greenspan book…Glad to hear that you liked it, Mum – I don’t think there were too many leftovers left after we all dived on the cake!

  6. that looks and sounds lovely!! mind if i make it in the cafe? i’m looking forward to some spring baking too!!
