We continue to meander through the Welbeck Estate picking, tasting, searching, sharing and chatting with our trusty guide, whose knapsack contains all manner of syrups, salts, seeds, tinctures and spirits.
Toward the end of the baking time, make the syrup. The orange syrup is what makes loaf cake wonderfully flavourful, sweet & tangy, and super aromatic! The syrup also makes the Pound cake super moist for days! Making the syrup literally takes less than 5 minutes and could not be easier!
Boil sugar and freshly squeezed orange juice for 3-5 minutes until syrup slightly thickens. Please pay attention to the consistency (it should get syrupy) instead of focusing on the time as each stove is different. What is important is that you use the syrup immediately: pour warm syrup all over the warm Cranberry Orange cake, then syrup will sink in. You might want to pour the syrup in 2-3 stages depending on how quickly it sinks in.
Prepare a simple sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water. Stir in the cranberries and orange zest strips to fully coat in the syrup, then remove them into parchment paper. A few minutes later, the sugar syrup is somewhat set on the orange zest and cranberries, roll them in granulated sugar. Voila, your Cranberry Orange bread is ready with the most wonderful decoration on top!
