(September 23, 2013, 10:35 pm PST Update: My contributor CP Choong is a homemaker in Penang and she loves baking. She found the recipe on these two blogs j3ss kitche3n and Nasi Lemak Lover. I practically just read the two links minutes ago and found out that the original recipe was from Almost Bourdain which was from Rick Stein’s Mediterranean Escape Cookbook. CP Choong couldn’t link to Almost Bourdain as the URL was not found, and hence the credit sources went to j3ss kitche3n and Nasi Lemak Lover. No one is trying to steal any recipes here. Thank you very much for your kind understanding! – Bee & CP Choong)
It’s the Father’s Day weekend and I am sure many of you will be celebrating the special day. I always think that Father’s Day is way underrated compared to Mother’s Day. I personally think that fathers give as much as mothers, if not more. They are out working, making a living to support the family, and when they come home, they have to play with the kids and help out with the chores. I have the world’s best father at home (Mr. Rasa Malaysia), and my son is very lucky that he has a wonderful father. I am blessed that I have someone whom I can “unload” my son to in the evening and on the weekends. It’s really precious.
Anyway, I digress.
When I saw this Sicilian Orange Cake on my friend CP’s Facebook, I knew that I had to tell her to share this Sicilian Orange Cake recipe with me. Sicilian Orange Cake tastes like butter cake, with an addition of orange juice. I love my butter cake recipe a lot, but the orange juice does add a citrusy tang and aroma to it. The end result is this beautiful and pleasing Sicilian Orange Cake that is very hard to resist.
This weekend, why don’t you surprise your father by making a cake for him. Cakes are not only for Mother’s Day, but can be a great surprise for your father. The recipe is in metrics measurement, but you can use my conversion tool to convert to US measurement. However, for the best results, please follow the exact recipe below. Have a great Father’s Day weekend!
