This perfumed orange cake is the perfect way to finish off a warm summer evening. the light bite of citrus from the orange peels is offset by the orange flesh and clove to make a flavorful experience that is refined and simple all at the same time. This cake is best served cold, with a black cup of coffee along side it.
