Blood Orange Pound Cake

Blood Orange Pound Cake

Happy New Year! I wrote this in 2017. It’s 2020 now. Some time went by! I have changed the photos and updated the recipe with a few changes that I think make the cake even better than it was before. I’m so happy about the changes I made and am still making in my photography and my style. I have been working a lot on this side of the blogging equation and I love it. I hope you do too.
Last year was a year of changes, big ones. Happy ones. I got married to the love of my life, the most wonderful man on earth; we moved to our first home together which implied changing neighborhoods and kind of getting to know the city again; and I started my online pastry shop!

Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls

Because we can’t find cinnamon rolls in France, I’ve never actually had the chance to fall in love with these beautiful little pastries. Nevertheless, I’ve always wanted to make them. But making cinnamon rolls for two is a little too much. I was afraid of eating the whole thing by myself. :)
Finally, the opportunity presented itself or rather I created one and gave myself the perfect excuse for making a batch. I decided it would be good for my husband to take some freshly baked goods to work to share with his colleagues. So now that I knew I would not be having them around the house for long I put myself to work.

One day I found myself with my fridge full of plums, so I went on a quest to find the perfect plum cake to put them to good use. There so much plum jam one can eat ? This is what I came up with! I can tell you for sure that this plum torte is delicious, easy and you can make it in under 20 minutes. Perfect spring baking material.
