You start out by zesting an orange and then you work that zest into some sugar with your fingers. What a lovely fragrance! The batter is pretty easy to make; then you make a lovely crumb filling that is-for the most part-shaved chocolate, cinnamon and sugar. After you put in about 1/3 of the batter, you sprinkle on half of the filling, then spread on the rest of the batter.
Then comes the tricky part: Dorie wants you to make a little ditch, pour in the rest of the filling, then smoosh the batter over the filling. My technique is to use my fingers and once I'm satisfied with the smooshing, my reward is to lick the yummy batter off my fingers!
