Sunday Brunch: Mimosa Cake
Editor's note: Each Saturday morning we bring you a Sunday Brunch recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.
This simple cake is inspired by a classic brunch cocktail: the mimosa. Delicate angel food cake gets topped with an orange scented cream and a few orange suprêmes. Take your time if you don't have a lot of practice segmenting citrus fruits. Or better yet, take a look at this handy video.
You can easily make both the cake and the cream the day before; just slice the cake and top it with whipped cream when your guests arrive. Make sure to have a big pot of coffee, along with some sparkling wine and OJ, to serve with this sweet, citrusy brunch.
