Blood Oranges

It's blood orange season! I thought I would try a different recipe (different for me) and make a Blood Orange and Cardamom Upside Down Cake with Cardamom Whipped Cream, from David Lebovitz. Results were tasty. But I can't help but think it might have tasted better with pears perhaps. I am attempting to use ingredients in new and different ways (again, for me). I am used to oranges as something to eat fresh, or squeeze for juice. So making a cake with them was definitely a stretch. I think it turned out pretty well though. Next citrus experiment, I'm pretty sure will have to involve kumquats, before they are out of season. Check out the beautiful colors...
