RECIPE: Love Cake
Peter Kuruvita
Soon to film Mexican Fiesta (SBS)

INGREDIENTS:
125g soft unsalted butter
125g fine semolina
10 egg yolks
150g caster sugar
150g pumpkin preserve
1 tablespoon rosewater
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

METHOD: Preheat the oven to 150C. Place the butter and semolina in a bowl and stir until well combined. Using an electric mixer, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale, then add the semolina mixture and combine well. Add the remaining ingredients and combine well. Divide the batter among silicon petits fours moulds or spoon into mini-muffin moulds. Bake for 8 minutes or until the tops are golden.

Alternatively, to make one large cake, pour the batter into a greased and baking paper-lined 6cm deep 25cm x 50cm cake tin and bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden and a skewer comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool slightly in moulds or tin, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
