|Can you see the bits of saffron?|
|the tastes that make it special|
I clipped the recipe from the now-defunct Cottage Living magazine years ago, but you can find it on myrecipes.com where it was posted by its creator, Kim Sunee. My daughter and I love this cake so much, we say it is what the gods would eat if they got hungry. We are absolutely crazy for it but, strangely, my husband and son don't much care for it. Maybe it's a girl thing. Saffron, orange zest, almond, butter and sour cream. I say, what's not to like? The recipe suggests dusting with powdered sugar or even topping with an orange juice glaze. I prefer it in its unadorned, straight-from-the-oven state.
