Method

  1. Heat the oven, line the tins and make the sponge exactly as described in the 'Goes well with' recipe, simply adding the orange zest to the sponge mixture.
  2. For the drizzle, roughly crush the sugar cubes with orange juice until they absorb the juice and become slushy. For the filling, whip the crème fraîche until stiff. Spread over one of the sponges, then spread the other with orange curd and sandwich the two together. Spoon over the drizzle and serve.

Made my own orange curd as my local supermarket only had lemon, but this cake was loved by all who tried it, the sugar topping is excellent too.

nice and light cake, was praised by all housemates :) I added candied peel to the fresh cream and on top instead of sugar cubes.

I changed the butter for margerine which (I think) creates a much lighter cake... but I liked the creme fraiche filling.. I kept the first cake and gave the second one to my sister whose husband loves cakes almost as much as he loves her!

This is my first visit into Good Food Guide and what a disappointment.
Like Caroline, I failed to find a clear recipe for the Drizzle Cake!
