A little domestic interlude…

A sudden need struck today for comforting baking smells to fill the house.  A batch of biscotti first, for the batch of puppy worshipping relatives descending in the afternoon.  They’ll need something to munch while Higgins puts on a show.  Then a Damp Orange Cake, which is satisfying on several levels.  You have to boil the oranges for two hours first, which smells heavenly.  In fact I would recommend boiling oranges even if you never make the cake…
