    Errata from early edition: Baking powder mentioned in the method should be ignored.

    As seen in the book illustration, can sometimes be a challenge to turn out, but is easier and still looks lovely cooked in a plain ring.

    I love this cake, its moist and almondy. I've tinkered with the flavourings - orange rind and orange flower water as well as orange rind and rosewater. All of the combinations work beautifully. Goes very well as a posh dessert with some quinces roasted in syrup and a dollop of yogurt.
