A syrup of macerated orange segments and a dollop of crème fraîche embellish this rustic cake, a nod to the Sephardic desserts of Italy and Spain. Olive oil gives the cake’s crumb a pleasant hardiness and is one of Hanukkah’s primary symbols: Cooking oils are meant to star in the meal.
This cake got mixed reviews in our house. My family enjoyed it, but I did not. I felt like it was a bit flat, somehow. Like it needed a bit sharper flavor. Texture was nice with the corn meal in there and the olive oil.
Really wonderful flavor cake recipe.
This recipe will absolutely become a new Chanukah tradition in our family. Fabulous, moist, flavorful cake. The rosemary-infused oranges and creme fraiche on top took it to the next level -- will make extra oranges to top each slice even more generously next year.
Thanks, Mr. Rosenfeld!
It is too yummy!
