Cake or Death? Er... Cake please

L found a number of recipes for Orange Cake and hoarded them over the years, one of which is by Lois Daish. Her "Orange Almond Birthday Cake" is the one I decide to bake!

After a quick shop (our fridge needed restocking anyway) I commenced covering every available bench surface with flour, egg white, sugar, ground almonds, orange juice, etc, and after pouring the mixture out and then transfering from one tin to another, better shaped tin, I stuck it in the oven and after an hour of baking it was done.

Verdict: Success.

We had salad and cake for dinner.
