About this recipe: This is a wonderful accompaniment to a nice cup of tea. Serve sliced and buttered.
Love it!! Had to improvise with grating the rind of a smaller orange and rather than orange juice I squeezed the remaining orange and I did not glaze it as I ran out of honey! Storming success as I've made another 3 in the past 2 weeks. Thanks!!! - 26 Aug 2013
Tried this today. Had to substitute plain flour, so following usual guidance of 2 tsps of baking powder per 250g flour, used 1 1/4 teaspoons of this. It rose well in the oven (needed 10 mins longer) but like jeangeni's cake, it sunk after. When cooled texture very sticky (more so than a ginger cake), but is tasty, if perhaps a bit too sweet and sticky. The recipe doesn't say when to add the orange juice, so I mixed it in at the same time as the zest. Although the recipe produced a satisfactory cake, the texture and its appearance wouldn't make it a good one for visitors, so I wouldn't be in a hurry to make it again. - 12 Apr 2012
