In the Kitchen With: The Pollans’ Grand Marnier Cake – Design*Sponge

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 many familiar names: Tracy Pollan — Emmy-award nominated actress and wife of Michael J. Fox; Corky Pollan — New York Magazine’s ‘Best Bets’ editor of 18 years and style director of Gourmet Magazine; sisters Lori and Dana Pollan; and food-guru brother Michael Pollan, who wrote the foreword for the family’s new cookbook. 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
