Mandarins are a burst of sweet freshness on a crisp winter’s day. During winter, they’re abundant and inexpensive to buy, and if you’re lucky enough you might have a mandarin tree at home dripping with deep orange orbs. Make the most of them!
If there's such a thing as the perfect afternoon tea cake, then this orange cake is probably it. Fragrant with orange zest, topped with orange icing and coconut, it's buttery, citrusy and utterly delicious.
