Ottolenghi Clementine Cake

A whole year has gone by, and I still haven’t told you how much I love Ottolenghi, or his recipes I should say. Of course, I love his restaurant in Islington too. Toasters on every table for breakfast, hot! (so, how about a Shoreditch branch…?)

Slice of Ottolenghi Clementine Cake

It’s rare for a week to go by in the Cakes household without an Ottolenghi dinner to feature. How about a Tomato and almond tart? Puff pastry smothered with a savory take on frangipane and ripe tomatoes. It’s like a pizza that has eaten in a few Michelin starred restaurants and has decided to smarten up. Or how about Seafood with fennel and lime? Lime tangy and bursting with herby goodness.

Ottolenghi Tamimi Jerusalem Book

But for the recipe for this moist, syrup soaked, Clementine & Almond syrup cake you’ll have to get yourself a copy Jerusalem, the new book by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. Get it, it’s amazing. You won’t regret it, and while you’re in the bookshop get the Ottolenghi back catalogue. You won’t want to eat anything else ever again.
