Everyone LOVED this cake. Made as directed, used a bundt pan, but it didn't rise very much. But the cake was so good it really didn't matter. For the icing, I used the suggestion from the review from cfletcher - 4 oz cream cheese, 1-1/2 cups of icing sugar, 3 T oj, and 1 T of butter, and I also added some leftover orange zest - and it was outstanding! I will make that icing recipe with this cake from now on - and I will make it together often!

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.
