This “Yuzu Cake” and a cup of hot coffee is a wonderful combination for any season!

Yuzu is one of my favourite flavours to bake with or to cook with, the intense freshness of this citrus fruit makes anything delicious. Whilst living in Japan, I had daily access to this fruit and I used to make a lot of different recipes using it. In Singapore once in a while, I find it in special supermarkets with exorbitant price but the heart wants it wants right? A few weeks ago I made this refreshing and delicate Yuzu Cake which has become our favourites!

Yuzu is quite difficult to find everywhere so if you can’t get your hands on it then I would recommend using orange and lemon zest and juice for the recipe. You can also use calamansi juice with lemon zest if you are in South Asia.

To make it more flavourful and special I have also added saffron in it and it tastes wonderful!

I have made this cake batter in the Thermomix but you can easily make it in a standing mixer or with a hand mixer. I will post that recipe in another post.

If you like refreshing cakes do check this Orange Honey Cake, it is one of my favourite recipes and loved by most!

So this is how you make this Yuzu Cake.
