Addition of 1/3 c. flour improves the cake, I think. Makes it more cohesive.

I prefer to do a ganache for the icing, it’s easier to work with.

Also suspect Grand Marnier can be replaced with Orange blossom water at some ratio (all the alcohol bakes off anyway).

I separate the eggs, and split the sugar between the whites and the the yolks, so that the whites stabilize. Then I can cut the baking powder in half.

I also add 1/2 tsp of salt.

Decorate with pistachios and pomegranate seeds.

I accidentally made this with two eggs last time. Ooops.

Suspect done temp is 195 Fahrenheit.
