Sticky Orange Cake
This Sticky Orange Cake has a show-stopping look yet doesn’t require much effort. With soft and moist orange-flavored cake and caramelized oranges, every bite is deliciously fresh and fragrant. Enjoy this orange cake warm with a dollop of crème fraîche.
The recipe is simple. Start out by preparing an 8-inch springform pan for baking. I recommend lining the pan with parchment paper, then greasing the paper too. Pour the golden syrup into the base of the pan and add a layer of orange slices. Next, prepare the batter. Beat together the butter and sugar with a handheld mixer. Gradually beat in the eggs. Once you add the eggs, stir in the flour, polenta, baking powder, orange zest and juice. Spoon the batter over the oranges and bake the cake until deliciously golden. Once the cake is done, let it sit ten minutes in the pan, then invert the cake onto a serving platter. You can now use your blow torch to caramelize the orange tops. Sprinkle a little confectioners’ sugar on the orange slices and burn with a kitchen blow torch for a brûlée topping.
