This was a fantastic cake. I made this twice and loved it both times. I added two squares of semisweet chocolate, and it went well with the rest of the cake.

Delicious, unusual recipe. Made it just as posted. However, the recipe doesn't say when to add the orange puree so I alternated stirring it in with the flour. I also added a drop or two of oil of orange and a few drops of vanilla. (We just can't seem to leave a recipe alone, can we!)A very quick dessert, great with coffee or tea, probably excellent with berries and cream.
