This isn't quite like a cake but I don't know what else you'd call it. More cakey toward the outer edge but sort of pudding in the center. I love it cold without topping. You can also subst pumpkin pie spice for nutmeg.

** Armenian Orange Cake

2 c. br. sugar
2 c. sifted flour
1/2 tsp. each salt & allspice
2 tsp. grated orange peel
4 oz. cold butter

1 tsp. bk. soda
1 c. sour cream
1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Combine br. sugar, flour, salt, allspice & orange peel in bowl.
Cut in butter with pastry cutter or fork until mixture is crumbly.
Grease & flour 9" sq. pan. Place 1/2 the crumbly mixture in pan.

Stir bk. soda into sour cream; mix in egg & other 1/2 crumbly mixture.
Pour over crumbly mixture in pan. Sprinkle with nuts.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 40-45 min.
Serve warm with topping if desired.

1 c. heavy cream
2 Tbsp. pd. sugar
1 tsp. grated orange peel
2 Tbsp. Cointreau or Grand Marnier

Thanks for this recipe - I saw Giada make an orange cake on tv the other day and she used a cake mix and I was thinking of a "real" cake and this one sounds good. Guess it would be good without the topping but wow that whipped cream topping sounds terrific.
