Dear SOS: I would be grateful if you could beg, borrow or steal the recipe for Girasole’s amazing orange cake. To the eye, it looks like an ordinary slice of cake, but one taste and you understand why we ordered three slices of it on a recent Thursday night. The most light yet orange-y and delicious expression of the fruit I have found in any dessert. I have begged them for the recipe, but maybe you have more leverage.
Dear Gwendolyn: The cake, easy to prepare and serve, has bright fresh citrus flavor. Serve it simply, under a dollop of whipped mascarpone and garnished with a bit of candied orange peel.
