This cake doesn't look very pretty, but that's partially due to the fact that I took the pictures at night with fluorescent lighting, and partially due to the fact that the original recipe calls for blood oranges (pretty) and I used regular oranges (not as pretty). That said, the cake is delicious! It's not too sweet (though my Chinese family still complained that it was) and it's very, very moist.
Baking in China is an experience. I didn't bring any 'tools' with me besides my measuring cups, so I used chopsticks in place of a whisk or fork . . .
