|Orange Crumb Cake With Almond Cinnamon Crumb Topping|
This is an interesting recipe. The liquid in the cake is orange juice instead of the usual milk. It worked, but without the crumb topping this would be an ordinary cake, not that there is anything wrong with an ordinary cake.
The cake is really moist, and the chopped almonds in the crumb gave it a nice crunch. This is probably not the right place to have a discussion on healthy cakes, but crumbs instead of frosting is lower fat, and healthy, for those of you who think fat is unhealthy. Most importantly, it is delicious and making the crumb topping requires hardly any additional effort. The recipe is available here.

Humans used to eat dirt in the past. And now a French restaurant in Japan is bringing back the past by featuring dirt on its menu. And no, we are not talking dirty plates.
One of the items on the menu is potato starch and dirt soup. Another item is a salad with dirt dressing. The dressing is made from dirt and a fine powder made from ground popcorn.
The dessert item sounds appealing, dirt ice cream and dirt gratin. A double dose of dirt, like double chocolate cookies. There is also dirt mint tea to cleanse the palate. Using dirt to cleanse the palate sounds unusual, like hiring a thief to guard your house.
The dirt used is obviously tested for safety and purity. And its not the dirt that you have in mind. The restaurant buys dirt from a company called Protoleaf. The dirt is made from coffee grinds and palm fiber, which were previously just thrown away. Its probably more organic rubbish than dirt, but dirt sounds more appetizing than organic rubbish, relatively speaking.
If you went to this restaurant and the plate or glass was dirty, would you complain?
Looking for inspiration and ingredients for your next meal? Look no further than your back yard. And don’t tell your guests until they have finished their meal. Add dirt to organic mushrooms and your guest will probably comment on how organic mushrooms tastes more earthy and delicious!
