In two minds whether to please the youngsters by serving a lavish cake for dessert, or appease the elders with a traditional mithai? Try this Cardamom Orange Cake, which combines both choices into one innovative dessert! Creamy shrikhand is thoughtfully combined with orange fruit and squash, and set atop orange-soaked sponge cake. A creative garnish of whipped cream and orange segments ensures that this quick and easy dessert looks as irresistible as it tastes. For a deeper flavour, you can use a dash of rum in the soaking syrup.
