“I got this recipe from It was submitted by "Pauline" I made it for dessert on Christmas day. It is very good! The cake is nice and moist without having an overpowering orange taste. You can use any kind of frosting/icing on this cake or even sprinkle powdered sugar on it. I used a can of Cream Cheese frosting on mine. I made this cake in a bundt cake pan. I do not know how it will turn out in a 9x13x2 inch cake pan or (2) 9 inch round cake pans. Prep and bake times are approximate.”
8-10 slices
