After our last Behind the Bar cocktail, the Long Kiss Goodnight, which featured Grand Marnier, I started to look around for other ways to use the liqueur in my cooking. I found one great way in this week’s recipe from the Pollans’ Cookbook for Grandma Mary’s Grand Marnier Orange Cake. The Pollan family includes Tracy Pollan, wife of Michael J. Fox, and author Michael Pollan, who wrote the foreword to the book. As for the cake, the addition of Greek yogurt makes a moist, soft crumb, and the orange scent added by the zest and glaze is heavenly for citrus lovers. The cake also has excellent keeping qualities, if you manage to save any once it is presented to your family or friends! -Kristina
