I made this recipe exactly as written and quite frankly this cake did not do anything for me - I thought it was a little bland and I did not like the texture at all. That said - I am giving it four stars because I took it to work to get rid of it and everyone at work really liked it.

Beautiful cake that was easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly. Wonderful orange flavour in a gluten free cake. Everyone at work loved their morning tea. Will definitely make this one again. Thanks for sharing this winner.

Used 2 medium oranges from my mom's garden, 3/4 c sugar and only 4 eggs. Nice, moist texture and wonderful fresh orange flavor. Almost like a pudding cake. Next time I plan on adding choc chips and I will reduce the sugar to 1/2 c as it was quite sweet for me. Served with unsweetened cream. To keep oranges submerged, I placed a steel steamer(the fan type) over the oranges. I added water as it reduced a couple of times. The kitchen smelled heavenly from both the simmering oranges and the cake baking. Thank you for a wonderful recipe without the unhealthy white flour!

Awesome cake! Definitely flavorful enough to not need anything else. The whole orange trick is really neat. baked it an extra 15 minutes because the center was still really moist with a toothpick. Like the others, one of my oranges was really big, so that's probably why. I almost had enough batter to split between too cake pans, but got it all into one instead. It's still really moist even though I cooked it so long. The top and bottom formed a denser tasty crust. I added Frangelico instead of Cointreau, but the orange is so strong I don't really notice the Frangelico flavor. I will use Cointreau next time. DH loves this too, and he's pickier than me about stuff. The fact it's healthy is a total bonus especially since he hates it when I bake tasty sweets that he wants to devour :). You'd never guess there wasn't flour in this.

Very good flavor. Super easy directions. My first flourless cake, and was agreeably surprised. Didn't expect the texture to be quite as nice as it was. Made a lovely presentation. Thnx for posting, Annisette. Made for ZWT4.

A very moist cake full of citrus flavour As with the previous reviewer, my cake took 10 minutes longer to cook. Perhaps that was because the oranges I used were very large. Made for ZWT4 Zingo

*Reviewed for Zaar World Tour 3* This cake is so moist and delicious. Simple to make and great clear instructions. It did take ten minutes longer in the oven. A beautiful moist cake and quite light in texture at the same time. This cake is gluten free provided GF confectioners/icing sugar is used for dusting. Served with pouring/thickened cream. A definite keeper of a recipe-thanks for posting Annisette. Photo also being posted. Editted to add- I have made these in small cakes/individual size using muffin tins. They cooked beautifully and made an elegant dessert .
