You see this slice of cake? It is pretty much the only whole piece of cake. Why, you may ask? Because when I was turning it over on the cooling rack, the whole thing broke, in some horrible slow-motion, time stopping, incident. My husband thought I should make another one, but I thought I had at least one slice that I could take a picture of. I don’t even know how it happened… I suppose I was being careless, and I should have known something would happen, with as delicate as it was coming out of the pan.
Delicacy aside, the cake was delicious… even in pieces. Being in Florida I used Florida oranges. I know the recipe called potentially for Clementines but the only ones available were from California and looking rather pitiful. It just seems irresponsible to not use Florida citrus!
I have to admit that I was a little wary of this cake, but now I wish there was more of it. Maybe I should have made that second cake after all… This would be perfect as part of a luncheon buffet, or part of a tea service. I love that this is so light, which seems perfect coming out of all the ultra-rich holiday food.
I really look forward to making the lemon bars next. One of my favorite finger desserts ever!
