I had high hopes for this cake but was disappointed. The batter was a bit salty( I used kosher salt), there was way too much sugar on top and the baking temperature caused the bottom to brown too much. If I make this again I would reduce the salt to 1/2 a tsp, add less sugar to the top(2-3 TB ) and reduce the baking temperature to 350. Sorry.
This was just delicious. The orange flavour is amazing and the texture of the cake is great. There is nothing I can fault. Everyone just devoured it and I will make it again next week when our friends will be visiting.
This cake turned out beautifully! I expected it to be gritty like cornmeal cakes usually are, but there was no hint of it. It was light and fluffy and very moist! Delicious! The only I would do different next time would be to put less sugar on top - maybe 1/4 cup instead of 1/3. There was a bit too much left sitting on top and was unnecessary for flavour. It does give a nice crunch though, so I wouldn't leave it out entirely.
