    Cookgirl's Note:

    My sister in law made this for her daughter's first birthday party recently. It is very good and easy to prepare. Please don't Zmail to tell me this isn't "authentic" Ukrainian cake. You can take that issue up with Ms. Katzen. Note: CG forgot to tell you when I first posted this recipe that SIL omitted the orange glaze and just lightly sprinkled powdered sugar on top of the cake instead. --fyi--

      A very good, very moist, not overly sweet cake. I did make the glaze, using orange liqueur and liked the flavor it gave the cake as well as the extra touch of orange sweetness. This is easy--comes together quickly and, once baked, pops right out of the bundt pan. Travels well too (I took it to a poppy seed-loving friend for her birthday). Thanks, CG!
