Moroccan Orange Cake is a perfect Tea-Cake that you can pair with a cup of Tea or Moroccan spiced Coffee. You can serve this with Orange Marmalade syrup as a dessert after a meal.
Few slices of Moroccan Orange Cake with a cup of tea, listening to ’80s Hindi songs.It was, like, totally awesome!
Moroccon Flavor in Moroccan Orange Cake
Moroccan food is incredibly diverse. Moroccan cooking is revered for creative flavor combinations using aromatic spices. The addition of Orange zest and Rosewater brings an aromatic smell to this cake.
You can also add orange blossom water to it for that extra zing. Though I have not added.
Making of Moroccan Orange Cake
In traditional way, butter is used in preparing this.I have used Canola Oil. You can replace oil with the same quantity of melted butter.
Today evening was pleasant with a good amount of rain. Rain is the best thing that can happen during Summer hot Days. Thankfully I finished baking before that.You can guess how my evening was!
Nagpur Oranges are no more in Season. I picked a variety of Oranges with thick-skin yesterday. You can get a good amount of zest from them. And I just love that smell !!
Have you ever tried Spiced Coffee !
You can glaze this Cake with a Marmalade syrup or Orange syrup .The texture of this Cake is bit dry.The glaze adds the moist and makes it perfect if you serving as a Dessert.
Without glaze ,it goes well with a cup of tea. You can relish it as Tea Cake.
