Australian Visiting Cake


I love the idea of a cake specifically made for when guests are coming by. Of course given the unpredictable nature of our daily lives, this might work better in theory than in practice but this week's TWD changes all of that. Swedish (Australian) Visiting Cake is the kind of one bowl, already on hand ingredient recipe that works beautifully whether you make it ahead of time or throw it together at the last minute. It's so versatile you can make it in just about any random skillet, cake pan or pie tin.


I made this cake this morning when I remembered my cousin's folks were flying in from Australia- hence the new name. I know this orange cardamom scented cake will be the perfect remedy for their jet lag!
Thanks Nancy for a great pick this week!

Great way to improvise by changing the location. I have a feeling that any hungry traveler regardless of country would enjoy this cake. Have fun with your guests!

Bonza cake Beryl!! Very tasty, perfect with a welcoming cup of tea. Thanks so much for making the cake, Mum and Dad very much appreciated it and felt very special that you thought of them! Nearly time for another piece I'd say! Cheers!

I've seen one other orange + cardamom combination, and now I'm just desperate to try that - might have to bake this a third time! How fabulous to have international visitors to bake this one for - who cares the country! Thanks for baking along with me this week.

Orange cardamom sounds fantastic! I was tempted to use cardamom, but left it plain this time around. Next time...
