ZWT6 Finland. "This is a simple sugar cake that goes well with a cup of tea. Most of the Finnish recipes only use candied orange peel to garnish and juice to make the glaze. I've also added grated orange zest to the cake batter to make the cake even more fragrant and tasty." http://nami-nami.blogspot.com. Cooking time is a guess.
