A really good recipe! I did make it without the orange peel, however. The beer gives it a nice lift & airy texture. Even the 3 -yr old liked it!

This is a really great recipe. It's a great contrast to all of the overly sweet desserts that pop up around the holidays. It's still sweet, of course, but in a much more hearty way. One change I made was to cook it in a bundt pan, which made it much more aesthetically pleasing and fun. It does take slightly longer to cook this way, however, so trust the toothpick!

I had high hopes for this, and the house DID smell wonderful as it baked.... I was skeptical about the whole wheat flour, but followed the recipe, it has a great taste, but I don't like the grainy texture from the wheat flour, I may use all white flour and try it again. I don't rate recipes I have rewritten and changed, and folks who like wheat flour better than I may like this better than I, but it kind of ruined it for me.
