happy new year !

Since I have been busy, I haven’t had much time to bake or blog. Still I am slowly continuing to make things that intrigue me. So I decided to make Nigella Lawson’s Clementine Cake, which I have had bookmarked since I saw the recipe in 2004. it only took me two years to get to, oh well! The cake was lovely and moist and best of all simple to make. The version I have made is from the Green and Black’s chocolate book where, Nigella advises to grate 100g of Maya Gold Green and Black chocolate over the cake once it has come out of the oven. Let the chocolate completely cool before you cut. To make mine a little more festive, I dusted it with gold dust. Wishing you all a wonderful 2007!

It's gorgeous, Sam!

I've made this several times, with grapefruit, blood oranges, etc. It's always good. And MUCH to my surprise, it can also sit open on the counter for several days and actually improve. Imagine!

Hello fellow Torontonian/baker/lover of food!

I've been dying to make this cake since I got the recipe from our Front Door Organics box last week. Good for you for f-i-n-a-l-l-y making time to bake it.

As I type the clementines are into their second hour of simmering. I came across your blog because I was trying to figure out if anyone out there has had any success with a vegan version.

Lovely pics!
