Paradise and Pennant Candied Fruit

Outlander: Dunkee Cake

Outlander: Dundee Cake, this Scottish recipe is inspired by the book and STARZ television series, Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon. This cake is easily recognizable with the blanched almonds beautifully arranged in concentric circles on top. The brightness of the candied orange peel really brightens the whole cake and is particularly great with a cup of coffee.
