Welcome citrus season with these tangy delights. From a traditional British pudding with a sticky orange marmalade glaze and an almond-laden clementine cake to a tangerine tart with pillowy brown sugar whipped cream and heavenly orange custard bars, these fragrant standouts will become your next baking obsession. Consider this your guide to edible sunshine.
The addition of zest, glaze, and a candied citrus garnish heightens the subtle blood orange flavor in this orange loaf cake, which manages to be moist without being dense.
This British childhood favorite, known cutely as a Roly Poly, is in essence an oven-steamed roulade cake. In our nod to the nostalgic dessert, a generous slather of English breakfast tea-powered orange marmalade runs in the tight spiral of a rolled vanilla cake.
This fragrant clementine almond cake demonstrates why almonds and sweet clementines are a match made in pastry heaven. If you’re looking for more one-layer cake recipes, order a copy of our One-Layer Cakes Special Issue!
4. Orange Marmalade Pudding
The cover star of our January/February 2018 issue, this pudding is about as traditional as it gets when it comes to old-school British puddings. Served warm with a little (or maybe a lot of) vanilla-infused custard, this is the sort of pudding you want to curl up with on a cold British night. Get Edd Kimber’s (of The Boy Who Bakes) recipe in our Jan/Feb issue!
Sophisticated meets doable in this party go-to, a thick layer of creamy custard between two flaky sheets of homemade puff pastry. Dress it up with whipped cream and fresh fruit
