If you'll read my personal page you'll know exactly where this recipe is coming from. This is a simple, unadorned cake with a dense texture (almost brownie-like). The orange twist is a nice surprise. One day I found myself spreading soft cream cheese over a slice and it was quite delicious! Enjoy with coffee or whatever is your poison.
