Gateau Grand Marnier (Orange Liqueur Cake)

I’m cooking for Cathy and Sloman tomorrow night at their place, so decided to get ahead and bake the cake tonight.  It is looking GOOD.  I think it is going to be super sticky like a Rum Baba and orangey and boozy.  Yum.  I ate a tonne of the cake mixture off the spatula.  Naughty.

Have been working VERY hard at the day job so am utterly pooped.  For once, not much to say here except all is well in the Palace of Solitude and I finally managed to be in when Bruce could come and look at my dunny.  He’s going to paint it.  Well the walls anyhow.  My flat is very shabby chic but I’ve always been a bit ashamed of how shabby the bathroom is.  The previous tenant – Dirty Eric – did leave it in a bit of a state and I’ve done my best with it but it’s very tatty.  So I’m taking the plunge and paying Bruce to spruce it up.   What a grown up thing to do…

Recipe from The Treasury of Great Recipes.
