This is the cake that doesn’t quit sugar. It’s always in full bloom and is as rich and sexy as it sounds. Nearly every visitor to my home over Easter or Christmas has had a jolly good dose of my love and now it’s your turn. This gluten-free indulgence has been such a crowd pleaser and each time it gets better and better. It’s the perfect treat after a long day in the surf or as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
The cake formerly known as Persian became an instant hit so much so that I reworked it ever so slightly and claimed it my own – with respect to the original source from a recipe in an old, well oiled Gourmet Traveller. Holidays are for celebrating and feasting with your friends and family. At Easter time in Byron Bay friends come to town from all over the world to perform at Bluesfest and Love Cake is always on my menu.
