The cake of the week was Olive-Oil Cake with Candied Orange, from the June 2011 issue of Bon Appetit.
Here is the finished cake with the candied oranges on it, and those are pistachios sprinkled on top. The cake was DELICIOUS!!! We both agreed that a dollop of whipped cream would have been a great choice to serve with it. (And yes I did try the candied oranges, but I did not eat the rinds.)
What I find to be the most interesting about my husband’s baking process is how is copies every single recipe into one of several leather bound journals that he has. He’s been doing this for 15 years — even though the technology is there to make it easier for him to cut and paste something into a document to save electronically.
