Spices can be used to make unique cake flavours

Why not spice up orange cake with different flavourings

When looking for new flavour ideas for dessert recipes, caterers could attempt to put a new twist on an old favourite.

For instance, culinary spices could be introduced to cake mixture to create a unique offering that diners may not have come across before.

Indeed, McCormick's resident expert Chef Steve says one of his favourite things about herbs and spices is their ability to bring new sensations to both sweet and savoury options.

Celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recommended using allspice and ginger in an orange cake.

He described the end result as creating "a wonderful winter tea-time treat, packed with warm, spicy, aromatic flavours".

Preparation involved adding the new ingredients to a conventional cake recipe and it was recommended the dessert be served with a ginger, orange and lemon syrup.

Do you have any cake recipes that incorporate unusual pairings of herbs and spice to create something that tastes completely individual?
