Orange Crunch Cake

Created on Florida’s Captiva Island at a kitschy, memorabilia-packed restaurant called the Bubble Room, Orange Crunch Cake features local citrus in orange-zest-flecked buttercream and layers of orange-flavored cake baked with graham-cracker-and-almond crusts. It’s assembled so that the crunchy sides meet in the center. While Bubble Room still makes the cake, the recipe has now been adopted by home bakers.
