This cake is the one my mother prepares like a chef! It is really simple but excellent. You cannot fail it. Good luck!
The cake will look dark orange so if you use black decoration on it, it is a perfect Halloween cake
Have made this recipe twice, first i made it into cupcakes and they were lovely, second time used a loaf tin and it turned out very dense. Wouldn't use this tin again for this recipe as also didn't rise as well. Orange flavour is strong but not too overpowering. - 23 May 2010
This recipe is good, try it, but IT MAKES A 9"x9" CAKE, NOT a 9"x13" one. At least, I can't imagine how so little batter could have made the larger cake. Beyond that though, this was great - moist, very orangey, a nice colour. After the juice soaked in (15 mins or so), I topped the cake with store-bought chocolate icing. That was a good choice - the combination tasted like those chocolate oranges you get at Christmas. I made it for Halloween. - 31 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great cake. A smaller pan works best. For a different cake, try Meyer's Lemons with this instead of oranges. Delicious. Like others, whipping cream makes a great serve along. After whipping, add just a tad orange zest to the the cream. - 21 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
