1- Chocolate Pomegranate & Sour Cherry Cake
This Slovakian chocolate cake recipe was originally for Passover but really, it suits any time of the year. Egg whites give this a wonderful light quality and it is topped with sour cherries and pomegranate arils to balance this gorgeous cake's sweetness.
2- French Perigordine Walnut Cake
The French walnut cake is super light cake that is low on effort but unique and gorgeous in taste. With a toffee topping and a light as air cake it is a study in textures!
3- Blood Orange Friands
Even if it isn't blood orange season you can make these adorable little friands with oranges. These are made with ground almonds and coconut for a dainty, sweet treat.
4- Fig Love Cake
This is one of my favourite ever cakes, not just for the taste but for the look too. It is a flourless orange and hazelnut cake with gorgonzola dolce frosting, dripping honey and fresh figs. It is delicious but proves easy to decorate too with fresh flowers and fruit!
5- Chocolate & Olive Oil Cake
Not only is this chocolate cake flourless and gluten free but it also happens to only require a few ingredients! It also happens to be gorgeously fudgey and delicious. Use a good quality olive oil to let the flavour shine through.
So tell me Dear Reader, which cake do you like best?
