WALNUT AND ORANGE SPICE CAKE FOR LENT

By Gina DePalma

The notion of fasting for Lent does not necessarily mean abstaining from all foods, but over-the-top indulgent sweets are noticeably absent from the table. Italians are more likely to enjoy simple, austere desserts, such as poached or baked fruits, roasted nuts and cheese to conclude their Lenten meals.
