DIRECTIONS

  • CAKE:
  • Preheat oven to 350. Generously butter a 10-inch fluted tube pan; then sprinkle it with flour, tapping out excess. Set aside.
  • In large bowl, beat butter until creamy.
  • Gradually beat in sugar, continue beating until the mix is light and fluffy.
  • Turn mixer to low, sift in flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat until flour is absorbed. Beat in Grand Marnier and orange zest.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add mini-chips.
  • Spread the batter in the prepared pan, smoothing the top even.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until the cake shrinks from the side of the pan. You can use the toothpick method too!
  • Let stand in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then carefully unmold the cake onto a second rack placed over a piece of wax paper or foil.
  • GLAZE:
  • Meanwhile, combine the orange juice, Grand Marnier and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over moderate heat.
  • Lower heat and simmer until the mixture forms a light syrup, about 5 minutes.
  • Brush the syrup all over the warm cake.
  • When cooled, transfer it to a serving plate.
