Peach Schnapps for Grand Marnier in cake?
Book Club is meeting at my house tomorrow evening. We read "Garlic and Sapphires" by Ruth Reichl, which was excellent and I recommend it. It is the story of her years as the restaurant critic at the NYT.
In the book she includes recipes, so I thought I would make a cake that is the final recipe in the book. It is her Last-Minute Chocolate Cake, which calls for 2T of Grand Marnier. I don't have any and don't want to buy it just for one cake. I do have Peach Schnapps. Could I use that instead or do you think it would be gross. Yes, I know it does not taste like oranges! Orange and chocolate are a pretty classic taste combination.
What do you think?
