Just curious...what's a match tea?
Made this cake for a match tea, and it was wonderful, it looked impressive and was delicious, very light and moist and appreciated by everyone. Very surprised to read reviews below.
From reading the reviews on this cake, I think I will skip the cake part and instead make a good sponge cake or even a yellow cake and use the filling and syrup from this particular recipe. I will bake it as soon as I am able to obtain blood oranges and will write an update review.
The actual cake was hard as a rock, so I added 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 cup of light milk. It worked perfectly! The cake was amazing!
There is an ingredient missing from the cake portion. Maybe baking soda or powder? The cake didn't rise, so I have a very flat rubbery pancake.
