Time before a celebration is always tight and since this recipe benefits from being made a day in advance you have one less thing to do immediately before. I live in company housing and my oven is not dependable. I've made this cake several times and one time it was over cooked. However, the compote was absorbed by the cake and the result was a moist dessert. I love the combination of flavors. Nice alternative to a iced cake for a birthday party.
Citrus Ginger Cake with Spiced Orange Compote
From EatingWell: November/December 2007
The flavor of this spiced orange compote improves with time so make it a day ahead or the morning of your party. Serve chilled in a clear bowl so the colors show through.
