A colleague, Roy E., baked a lovely cake drizzled with a rich cinnamon sauce for a recent meeting - totally sinful, but I had to have the recipe. I made a few slight alternations in my attempt to be better (not exactly good) by reducing some of the fat and sugar and, looking at all the oranges in my fridge, I added an orange flavor all around with zest, juice and Grand Marnier.

A professional essay writer can tackle any academic subject and can provide you with a high-quality paper in a timely manner. Their experience and expertise in writing will help you boost your grades.

With the right writer, you can enjoy a high-quality essay while avoiding countless hours of stress. The service's writers are available 24/7, so you can always count on a timely delivery of your paper.
You can also opt for a service that can do my paper for me cheaply, but only if you choose one that's reliable. Cheap writing services are unreliable and may not complete your project on time. Therefore, you must choose a reputable service that will do it on time and meets your needs. You may not want to spend too much on a cheap service that will only end up costing you more money in the long run.
If you're worried about plagiarism, consider hiring a research paper writer. You can contact them directly and get a finished paper within minutes. And the best part is, it's legal! As long as you choose a reputable writing company, you'll be safe. They never break the law and deliver non-plagiarized content. Just be sure to check their reputation and sample work before you choose one. Finally, choose a writing company with transparent policies and testimonials from previous clients.
Moreover, you need to ensure that the paper writer you're hiring is reputable and can deliver the type of work you need. There are many freelance writers online that will do the job for you, so you need to be sure that the writer you hire can deliver a quality paper. However, you should also check the online reviews of the company you're choosing before ordering from them. You should order research papers only when you're certain that the service you're choosing will meet your expectations.

Ingredients

  • For the cake:1/4 cup butter (I used Earth Balance), softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup milk (I used fat free)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 orange, zested then juiced (juice is for the sauce)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup brown sugarJuice of 1 orange
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Pinch of salt
  • Up to 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp Grand Marnier

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add egg, vanilla and milk and mix until incorporated.
  3. Slowly add flour, baking powder and salt. When combined add orange zest.
  4. Pour batter into a cooking spray lined 9x9 baking dish. Bake 30 minutes until knife comes out clean (dip into the center of the batter). Remove from oven and let cool in pan on a wire rack.
  5. Meanwhile, heat water, brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon stick and salt in a small pot over medium heat. Let simmer during the 30 minutes of baking. Depending on how thick the sauce is (or how thick you want it), add up to 1 Tbsp of cornstarch by spooning some of the hot sauce out, whisking the cornstarch in, and then pouring the mixture back into the pot.
  6. When it has reached desired thickness, remove from heat and add in Grand Marnier.
  7. Make 10-12 holes in the top of the cake (still in pan). Pour Grand Marnier sauce all over the top, making sure it goes into the holes. Wait 10 minutes for the cake to adsorb the sauce.
  8. Turn cake onto serving platter and cool or cut and eat warm.
