Prosecco and Orange Cake

HIM and I attended a weekend retreat for couples in Leuven – and I offered to provide a little bit of sweet treat for the first evening…

I was told that 2 people were lactose intolerant… so off I went in search of recipe in my arsenal of sweet treat documents to find something that would appeal to all!

this is one of those recipes that has been in my handwritten recipe book for years – so I have no idea where I first found it… and it has the whole *angel* cake thing going for it!

super easy to make and super easy to eat 🙂

  1. Seriously tempted to try this but I can’t help wondering whether or not it’s a waste of prosecco! I guess it only need a glass full and once the bottle has been opened for this, you might as well drink the rest.
