I did not achieve too many foodie successes lately and the baby took most of my energy and creativity. For the meals, I kept doing the same recipes over and over again every Shabbat. But at least I kept reading about tasty recipes and once in a while I introduced some new meals on the menu.
For instance, the orange Moroccan cake, which is very easy to make, using simple ingredients and can match various meals. It is parve and can be done in around 45 minutes, out of which the baking lasts 30 minutes.
It serves around 10 people
4 big eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 spoon vanilla sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups floor
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of fresh orange juice - if you want it more spongy
Mix the eggs and the sugar and vanilla sugar
Add the oil and keep mixing
Mix in the flour with the baking powder, followed by the salt and orange juice.
Heat the oven at 180C
Let the mixture in the oven for 30 minutes.
