Something To Go With The Clementine Cake

Asked by colcarmac. Answered on 29th March 2016

Full question

What would go with Nigella's Clementine Cake for a dinner party? Thanks.

Our answer

Nigella's Clementine Cake (from HOW TO EAT) is made with ground almonds (almond meal) instead of wheat flour, so it is deliciously moist and ideal as either a dessert or just on its own with a cup of tea or coffee. Creme fraiche or a thick Greek yogurt are great accompaniments, and you could scatter a little finely grated orange or clementine zest over the cream or yogurt.

Fresh berries, such as raspberries or blueberries, usually go well with citrus-flavoured cakes and add a little extra colour to the plate. Or you could scatter over some jewel-like pomegranate seeds. If you wanted to continue with a citrus theme then you could also make some of Nigella's [Caramelised Oranges] (/recipes/chilled-caramelised-oranges-with-greek-yoghurt)(from NIGELLA SUMMER) to serve alongside. However the caramel syrup is quite sweet, so serve it sparingly with the cake.
