My colleague Leila has challenged me to find the recipe for the Orange Date Nut Cake of her youth. Easy you say? You found seven recipes for Orange Date Nut Cake on the first page of Google alone?
Well, I did too. Here they are:
So I found it, right? End of post.
Wrong. Since you asked, none of these recipes has fresh oranges in it. The recipe Leila remember has fresh fruit and cream cheese frosting. It is super-dense and extremely sweet. If you know what she's talking about, hit me at howbourgeois @ gmail.com and either send the recipe or let me know where to find it. I will reward whoever finds me the recipe with half of a cake. Happy Hunting!
