This cake is a simple recipe using the wet into dry method I am so fond of.
Regular oranges work just as well, but when in season blood oranges are just divine.
You could of course make a classic lemon version.
I topped mine with some roasted Rhubarb and you can find the recipe here.
If you don‘t top with rhubarb, then a light glaze of ½ cup icing sugar sieved with enough blood or regular orange juice to blend to a smooth easy to pour consistency, finishes the cake of beautifully. Top with a little extra zest for added zing.
