    Sydney Mike's Note:

    The original of this recipe comes from a publication from last year, The Complete Baking Cookbook. There is an icing, appropriately titled Orange Crunch Icing, that is particularly nice with this cake! Preparation time does not include time for cake to freeze before adding icing!

      This cake is simply divine! Buddha made half the recipe as a single layer cake. He replaced the vegetable shortening with butter and used all orange juice instead of half OJ/half water. It came out perfectly moist and very flavorful. Made together with your Orange Crunch Icing and they blend scrumptiously! Both are highly recommended and are going into our keeper recipe file. Thanks bunches for sharing this winner!

      This is a really good cake that was put together in to time. The orange flavor is subtle and not overpowering which I really enjoyed. Thank you!
