Orange and Almond

When you fancy a treat, but maybe not the intense chocolatey flavour of a brownie, then this Orange and Almond blondie with it's bitter sweet flavour and subtle citrusy tang from the fresh oranges and the flaked almonds, will really hit the spot.

Orange and Almond blondie

 
An almond based cake is always a winner for me! I actually tasted this cake for the first time when visiting my sister-in-law in Sydney! I fell in love with the cake and just knew I would have to recreate this beauty when I got back home.  I have finally perfected the cake into a delicious orange and almond blondie.

 

Whole oranges go into the cake to give you a bitter citrusy orange taste, it is my absolute favourite cake (I know I always say this – but really it is!) I top the cake with flaked almonds before baking and once cooled dust with icing sugar to give the cake a little sweetness.  This blondie just screams summer to me.  The blondie tastes amazing with a dollop of crème fraiche or creamy thick Greek yogurt on the side.  Sit back and enjoy this little slice of citrus heaven.

You can buy the Orange and Almond blondie from my brand new Summer box of 4 great flavours for this summer, which include a classic Bakewell Blondie based on all the great tastes of a timeless classic the Bakewell tart, also choose a Lemon drizzle blondie made with home made lemon curd, and a rich fudgy Lotus Biscoff blondie, this truly does make a summer blondie box which is unforgettable.

But if you fancy a mixture of brownies and blondies, you can individually choose this blondie from my Pick Your Own box of 4, where you choose your favourite four flavours.

 

Don't forget for that extra special touch, you can add a personal message at the checkout, which I will hand write onto a card and pop it inside the beautiful brownie gift box, and for that extra special touch, you can also buy a beautiful brownies gift wrap.
