I just baked this and it smells delicious! If it tastes anything like it smells, then I'm in for a treat! I used butter instead of margarine, I cut the ginger down to 1/2 tsp. (I'm not a big ginger fan) and used about 1 Tbsp. of orange rind. I also used fresh squeezed OJ and also threw in a handful of saltanas and raisins. I had to cook it for an extra 15 minutes. Can't wait to try it! Thanks! :D

We love this type of bread/cake and this is no exception. For taste bud reasons we prefer to use butter and also added more orange rind. Lovely little cutting cake so thank you for a good addition to my files.
