    gemini08's Note:

    A moist, flourless cake, using semolina and ground almonds instead. Dust the cake with confectioner's sugar, serve accompanied by strained, plain yoghurt and drizzle the remaining orange syrup around. Decorate with the reserved orange rind and sprigs of mint From the book "Perfect Baking" published by Parragon in 2008.
