Author Notes

I took the recipe for Maialino's Olive Oil Cake and tried to make it peach-y, substituting peach liqueur for Grand Marnier and adding raspberries for freshness and zest. I also reduced the sugar in the cake. It was delicious, but not peach-y. If I were to make it again, I'd use more peach liqueur, less juice, different zest, different juice or less orange zest. The orange really was overpowering (but so yummy!). The raspberries were great. I only wish I had added more.
