This Sticky Orange Cake with Natural Yoghurt Topping is a tribute to my very good friend Fabien. Fabien is an outstanding pastry chef and the two of us certainly have one thing in common and that is striving for perfection. I owe Fabien a big thanks, as he taught me a lot about the art of pastry. This sticky orange cake recipe is one of the first of Fabien’s delights that I had the privilege of tasting. He’s naturally protective over his recipes so I am honoured to have this one.
The ingredients make this cake unique. Using whole boiled oranges gives this cake it’s sticky dense characteristic and ultimate orange punch. The yoghurt topping garnished with pomegranate seed, pistachio nuts and freshly grated orange zest complements the moist deliciousness of the cake.
