Snackshot of the Day: Blood Orange Loaf Cake

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

It's almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a blood orange loaf cake. The best part of the colder winter months is being able to enjoy winter citrus. Blood oranges and grapefruit are great for baking. This recipe comes from the blog Annie's Eats, who says, "I love this cake because of its simple elegance, and the intense orange flavor that comes from three doses of orange — in the cake itself, the soaking syrup and the glaze.  Even more if you add the candied orange slices on top."
