    Tiny_Toodles's Note:

    This cake so wonderful served as dessert or with tea. You may omit the orange zest and substitute milk for the orange juice if you like. Use any jam you wish. Raspberry is very good.

      Loved this cake! Made as a birthday cake. What a great alternative to the usual "frosted" birthday cake (the birthday boy is not too fond of frosting). The orange taste waas not overpowering. I made a nice decorative powdered sugar design on top which made this cake taste and look good. Thanks for posting!

      If you like orange cake, you will love this one. It is not hard to make either
