Lovely and moist. Perfect with a warm cup of tea. I made an icing with orange zest, orange juice and confectioners sugar and sprinkled with candied orange peel. It was great!

I searched and searched for a decent orange cake recipe -- more specifically, one without liqueur (because if you're making an orange cake, surely you want a fresh flavor!) This one sounded great because it was so simple, yet it gave precise mixing directions -- and I wasn't disappointed! The cake was quite moist and tender, due to the addition of the whipped whites at the end. My guests were very pleased with the velvety texture and smooth, natural orange flavor. I used the "Simply Orange" brand for my orange juice, and I used a tad more than 2 tbs orange zest. Also, I paired it with cream cheese buttercream, which complemented the orange fantastically. If you like your cakes on the sugar side, or if you prefer very light, airy cakes, this one may not be the recipe for you. If you like moist, tender, subtle cakes, you've found your recipe!


1/22/02 This cake is simple to prepare, but I probably won't be making this again. Beyond the ease of preparation, my family and I found this to be very bland. There was very little orange flavor, and I guess I was expecting something more. The cake was very light in texture, but seemed to be lacking in flavor. Sorry!
