This amazingly moist and delicious cake is adapted from a favorite family recipe of Bianca Henry, a New York pastry instructor. You’ll need a thin skewer to poke holes in the cake. Serve the cake garnished with slices of peeled oranges macerated with a little sugar and rum.
Help! I cooled my cake over night before I poked holes and added the DELICIOUS orange syrup. Can someone tell me if letting the cake completely cool would make a big difference in the final outcome? The cake tasted very bland and I'm guessing because the syrup couldn't soak into the cooled cake. Any thoughts?
Easy straight forward cake to make...made this for a dinner party and it went over very well with everyone. This would be a great cake to make ahead. Fine cooking recipes never disappoint!
