I baked my grandparents an orange loaf cake (the recipe called for some Grand Marnier)today.
They have a daily habit of eating afternoon tea at 3pm – a cup of teh with biscuits, or kuehs, or cakes from the bakery and when I was still a student living with them, pancakes!
According to the recipe book Paris Sweets, the French call such cakes le goûter (how to pronounce this…?) – a little something, often sweet, to tide one between lunch and dinner, usually taken between 4 and 6 PM (basically, afternoon tea).
It is my first time trying out this recipe and I hope the cake tastes alright.
