This Gluten Free Orange Cake is my version of Claudia Roden’s Gateau a l’Orange. This moist festive cake makes an ideal dish for holiday celebrations. Eat your heart out Starbucks!

Fabulous! Have never tried a recipe involving boiled fruit! Didn't know what to expect given the varied reviews, but for me it turned out beautifully. Don't judge on the flavour of the batter because the orange rind is overwhelming before it's baked. I always need gluten and sugar free recipes, so I'm thrilled to have this one now. Gluten free or not, this is just good. Hmmm..wonder if you could make this with lemon. ;) Thanks Elana.
