    Aunt Willie's Note:

    A co-worker brought this into a work luncheon and I begged her for the recipe after tasting it. She drizzled the slices with an orange syrup, but she didn't give me that recipe. I think it could be made by combing 2 tbsp of orange juice with enough powdered sugar to make a drizzable icing.

      Came out as a moist and fragrant sponge - most popular post-meal dessert at dinner! Could possibly use a slightly longer bake time (ie 30 minutes) but might be my oven. Added an orange glaze to top but next time will also offer a fruit compote on the side. Will definitely make it again!

      Light as a feather and a wonderful orange flavor !! A keeper recipe for sure ! I made a glaze of powdered sugar, orange juice, a little fresh grated orange rind, vanilla, and butter. I drizzled it over the warm cake and we loved every crumb !!
