No Marmalade Orange Pudding Cake – Wow, what a mouthful it is, but such a worthy title! Let me tell you a little secret, there really is not a speck of marmalade in it. Yup you got that right! Although I must say I had to boil an orange for it. This citrusy treat is loaded with the rich, orangey, sticky sweet sensation that a orange marmalade pudding cake would deserve if there ever was one. This cake is unbelievably moist, dense and bursting with fresh citrusy notes.
Who would have thought boiling an orange would be so much fun! First of all, simmering the orange in a huge pot of water was an experience it itself.

My Mum’s Recipe
This is a long overdue recipe that has finally made it on For The Love of Ghee. So, for those of you out there who wanted this recipe, here it its!
This basic beef curry is quite delicious, and yet again easy to make. The prep time is definitely quick. It does however need a significant amount of cooking time. Therefore, I would suggest making this on the weekend, obviously it being a little less mayhem than a weeknight.
Needless to say, it is rather delicious reheated the next day or saved for later in the week. Frankly the curry tastes great, cold or warm, stuffed into a sandwich and served alongside a pickle and chips or eaten warm with a hot slice of toast or roti.
However, I would suggest eating the curry atop a pile of rice with a pickled condiment of choice, a dollop of yogurt and some crunchy side, perhaps pappad or if that’s not available, a small handful of potato chips. Ummmm… Yummm. I made beef curry today and this is exactly how I ate it! I could go on but you get the gist of it. I hope you’re able to make this recipe soon and please let me know how it fairs…
