One of our newest members, Leslie of Lethally Delicious, chose this Sunday's recipe. The long winded name of the recipe says it all — Roasted Pecan Cake with Caramel Orange Marmalade and Burnt Orange Buttercream — sounds like a lot of work, right? Well, sort of.
For the cake:
I halved the recipe, toasted up pecans, process them in a food processor. Beat SIX egg whites into a meringue. I'm so glad I always have some frozen for a time like this. Fold in and bake. Then I made caramel peach marmalade (with some fresh oj). The last step is the Burnt Orange Buttercream. By this time, i was exhausted and just made fresh whipped cream (lightly sweetened) with some orange zest.
Half the recipe made a really cute 2-layer 7-inch cake, that was delicious!
