DIRECTIONS

  • Make the syrup: In a saucepan, add all syrup ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring well. Reduce heat and allow to boil gently for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Beat egg whites, salt, and water to the firm peak stage.
  • Preheat oven to 340°F
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks, sugar, cinnamon, and ground cloves very well until creamy and smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the baking soda, baking powder, and flour, and stir in to the mixture.
  • Add grated orange peel and juice, brandy, breadcrumbs, and walnuts.
  • Finally, and carefully, fold in the beaten egg whites.
  • Lightly grease a 13x9 inch baking pan (or equivalent) with butter, pour in the batter, and bake at 340F for 40 minutes.
  • Cake is done when a knife inserted into the middle comes out dry.
  • Spoon the cooled syrup evenly over the hot cake. Sprinkle with walnuts mixed with a little cinnamon. Allow to cool before serving.
  • Make sure the syrup is completely cooled before adding to cake. If necessary, refrigerate for a few minutes.
