      I made this cake for my Dad who can't have butter. It is very moist and flavoursome and was enjoyed by all. Wasn't bitter but very orangy... maybe this hides the taste of the olive oil, which could otherwise be a little strong. Will make again.

      This cake had a fantastic texture, but it turned out quite bitter. Maybe my oranges were too big, but we thought it would have been nicer with a bit less zest. Moist and flavourful though! Thanks MarraMamba!

      Made in an 8-inch square pan instead of a round one. Wonderful flavor, wonderful texture, wonderful moistness. Perfecto!
