I picked up some gorgeous Moro blood oranges at Whole Foods yesterday with the intention of making a sticky orange cake. I figured that the colour of the oranges would produce the most beautiful pink looking cake possible.
I had gorgeous, deep red juice (one might say blood coloured). Surely I wouldn't need food colouring?
So, perhaps you can tell me why the cake went from the colour of this juice:
to this colour on the outside:
And this colour in the middle:
Can you see the blue-green tinge? My cake has a blue-green tinge.
Why does my cake have a blue-green tinge?
In what world is it okay for your dessert to come out of the oven with a surprise blue green tinge?
Because this is pretty much what it was supposed to look like...

Recipe link here. I'd post the recipe, but I'm not sure I can recommend making a cake that turned blue.
It's delicious though... just blue.
