Armenian Orange CakeWhile the sun is finally shining in Calgary again, the past few days of rain and dark skies made me crave comfort food in the form of baked goods.
A few weeks ago, my sister-in-law brought a cake to dinner—a dense, slightly mysterious cake scented with spice and orange and served with Grand Marnier whipped cream. While I am not generally a cake-lover, I fell hard for this one. To my surprise, the recipe was from a classic Western Canadian cookbook that I already owned.
Almost everyone who has lived in Alberta or Saskatchewan will be familiar with the Best of Bridge cookbook series. The first cookbook was published in 1976 and those original cookbooks (or the compilations based on those recipes) can be found in most of my friends' homes, whether they are experienced home cooks or not. If you're looking for an easy, foolproof recipe, try some from the Best of Bridge cookbooks.
The Armenian Orange Cake recipe can be found in a few of the Best of Bridge cookbooks including Enjoy and The Best of the Rest cookbooks (and has been reprinted online in several places as well):
