I just made this tonight and the kids loved it. The orange flavor is a twist to regular cakes. It was a little dry but, it had great flavor not to sweet just right. We had big glass of milk with this. I will make it again.Thank you.

I submitted a correction in the baking temp - from 350C to 350F. This was my 1st time baking a cake from scratch and it turned out well. Lovely texture and a light orange flavor, very dense. I would have liked it to have a sweeter taste & to be moister. I used a 9x13 pan and it was done in 35m. Added orange extract to white frosting to compliment the orange flavor of the cake. We all kids & adults, enjoyed this after dinner, thank you.
