Step up the healthy cake game with a dash of juicy orange! Traditional low carb almond cake with freshly incorporated mermalade at it’s core. Yummy!

As I currently have some time, I had been surfing on the web last week. Attempting to find fresh, stirring ideas, inspirational meals that I’ve never tried before, to treat my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t come across any interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came across this tempting and simple dessert simply by accident over Suncakemom. The dessert looked so delightful on its photo, that called for prompt action.

It was not difficult to imagine just how it’s made, its taste and how much boyfriend is going to enjoy it. Mind you, it is quite easy to impress the guy when it comes to desserts. Anyhow, I visited the website and then used the comprehensive instuctions that were combined with great snap shots of the task. It really makes life much easier. I could suppose it is a slight inconvenience to shoot photos in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you most often have gross hands so I seriously appreciate the time and effort she placed in to make this post and recipe conveniently implemented.

That being said I’m encouraged to present my own, personal recipe in a similar way. Thanks for the idea.

I had been tweaking the original mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I have to say it had been a great success. They prized the flavour, the structure and loved having a sweet like this in the middle of a hectic workweek. They ultimately requested more, many more. Hence next time I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m likely to twin the amount to get them delighted.

Many Thanks to Suncakemom for the scrumptious Orange Almond Cake Recipe.
