anyone who loves orange will love this cake, I baked mine in an 11 x 9-inch pan and that worked just right, I may reduce the zest to only one orange next time, served with whipped cream for a wonderful treat, thanks for sharing Sharon!

The cake was not overly dense; it was light yet still incredibly soft and tender. I pureed some orange flesh, pushed it through a sieve (to make enough juice for the cake batter and glaze) and stirred the reserved pulp into the batter. I also doubled the orange zest. Thanks very much for sharing this recipe! It is worth the extra effort.

"If you love orange", this the perfect cake!" Great flavor and super texture. Made in a bundt pan for a family "do". Eventhough, I had prepared the bundt pan before I filled it, the cake cracked when I removed it from the pan. With no time to make another cake, I used Whole Wheat Carrot Cake With Creamy Orange Icing (Low Fat) as a soft orange icing recipe. (added a little more oj and a teas. grated orange rind) and covered the damage. There were no leftovers. This recipe is a keeper and I can't wait to make it again "with" your glaze. I'll be more careful when I remove the cake from the pan in the future. Thank you, thank you.
