Orange Syrup Cake ~ 香橙糖浆蛋糕



This is a fat-free cake as the ingredients are only eggs, sugar and flour.  The texture is a bit dense but the flavour is well compensated by the syrup comprising of freshly squeezed orange juice with an addition of Cointreau.  The cake tasted much better the next day, thanks to the orange syrup.










Can indulge in this fat-free cake without the slightest sense of guilt  :)
