This is really WONDERFUL and HEALTHY cake! I used Splenda baking blend and the zest from 1 orange. This tasted similar to a bran muffin but with a nice orange essence. It was sweet and soft and satisfying. No changes are needed but I'd love to try this with chopped apples. Thanks for this KEEPER recipe!
