The fetching young Antipodean who delivers our organic boxes gave me an extra bag of Seville oranges today (I flatter myself that this was a tribute to my charms, but even I can realise that the lure of my sheepskin slippers has its limits). I seem vaguely to remember that Nigella bungs them in a cake and as I was thinking of making a lemon cake this week, would they be a Subtly Delicious Alternative?
Don't tell me to make marmalade, please don't, I can't face it.
There is a cake - and you're right, it is a case of cooking them and blitzing them, skins and all. I'll look it up this evening. You've reminded me that I have some Seville ornages sitting in the fridge. I might make that cake for Sunday lunch, when I have some friends coming round.
Is it Nell Gwynne - the statue in Dublin who is nicknamed 'The tart with the Cart'
....oh, no twas Molly Malone.
And the one in the fountain ...
Statue of Anna Livia (personification of the River Liffey as a woman sitting on a slope with water running down past her, bubbling) - nicknamed the Hoor in the Sewer, Viagra Falls or the Floozie in the Jacuzzi.
Motherinferior - the one I'm talking about IS a cake. A nice moist cake.
I've found it now - here . It's actually for a Clementine cake - but she talks about making it with orangs, or lemons, in which case she increaes the sugar in it. Given that Seville oranges are quite bitter, I would probably increase the sugar as in the lemon version
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm cake sounds good. Alternatively palm them off on a marmalade maker provided they promise to give you at least a jar of the end product back. We get Seville orange marmalade by the barrow load from dp's mum. In fact my SIL once said "Two people have to die before I have to learn how to make marmalade" .. the two people being her gran, and dp's mum!
The Clementine cake is supposed to be fabulous. How tempting ... am in a pre-baby baking frenzy at the moment! Hmmmm ... I cannot possibly find an excuse to make it though, given that I've got about 10 servings of Nigella's Chocolate Truffle Cake in our fridge waiting to be eaten!
