Muscato D’Arancia Cake

Muscato D'Arancia Cake

The following recipe was offered as dessert with dinner at the Grape Jam festival last Sunday. It was provided to wine club members, and I thought it might nice to share with you.

This is an orange muscat wine, but if you can’t get it maybe something similar might work. Also, it was made for a large group so I’m sure what serving adjustments might be needed.
