Coming up next- is something I made for Meeta's Monthly Mingle . Well, there's nothing much happening in India on the football front with the exception of Kolkata -where the 3 chief interests are Phood, Phish and Phootball (meaning food, fish and football) Kindly note that Phood and Phish are listed separately.
I haven't decided which team to cheer. So, it's easier to just take sides with the team that wins in the end and I shall be celebrating, with the Orange Rum Cake.
This is Tarla Dalal's recipe and i have tinkered with it a little!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter (recipe says low fat butter- but I haven't come across low fat butter in our grocery stores)
1/2 cup sugar or splenda (recipe uses 8 sacets of sugar substitute)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup buttermilk (made from 2 1/2 tsp low fat curd )
1 tsp orange rind
3 tbsp rum
Pre heat the oven at 400 F/ 200C. Grease a 5" baking tin and keep aside.
Sieve the wheat flour and baking powder together and keep aside
Cream the butter and sugar / sugar substitute together in a bowl (mix them together until soft)
Add the orange juice, buttermik, rind, rum and what flour mixture. Mix well.
Pour batter into greased tin.
Bake for 20-25 min at 400 F / 250 C until a tester comes out clean.
Cut into 6 wedges.
Serve as a dessert with a shot of rum.
Note: You can skip the rum if you wish and add 3 tbsp of milk instead.
