This whole week has just passed in such a jiffy but before the weekend starts, I wanted to share this gorgeous ‘Easy and Moist Kumquat Ginger Cake’ with you’ll. You won’t believe that I’ve been thinking of sharing this amazing cake recipe with you’ll since last year but just didn’t get a chance to buy fresh kumquats and make this. So, finally, as soon as I saw the first batch of these cute little kumquats, I knew what’s coming up next 😉I love desserts more than savory food and on top of that, I love citrus flavored desserts from tarts, cake, muffins…you name it and I’ll find a citrus version. Especially after the long harsh winter that we’ve had this time, I’ve been craving my spring-summer fruits, sunshine, beaches and just everything green and colorful. We’ve had tons of rains and gloomy weather here in California, so this cake was such a refreshing change that we all needed. I did make it for a small gathering with friends and most of the cake was gone…except 2-3 slices which I packed for a friend who couldn’t attend. If you’ve been reading my blog, then you might have come across my ‘Moist Lemon Yogurt Cake’ and this is something similar but with an orange flavor and a bit of cream cheese. Now, you can make this cake similar to the lemon cake recipe, however, the kumquats had this slightly more citrusy flavor which at times make desserts taste slightly more tart than needed. So the cream-cheese tone down that tartness and also adds a layer of soft crust on top…which when you bite into is pure luxury!I mean words cannot do justice to the delicious piece of yum this cake is…you have to try it to believe how amazing it is and don’t worry, it’s absolutely easy to make too. I also added some freshly grated ginger to the cake batter to enhance that perfect citrus flavor and then added thinly sliced kumquats on the top (which have been soaked in a mixture of sugar, orange juice and ginger). I’m telling you, it’s one GOURMET CAKE, that you’d not get outside but once you try it, you’d never forget the taste and don’t blame me for the next cravings 😉 That’s it for now, Hope you try this Easy and Moist Kumquat Ginger Cake soon and have a Great Weekend !
