This is an easy-to-fix, lovely & flavorful tea cake that DH & I enjoyed w/coffee instead of tea for the tradition of Icelandic afternoon *Kaffi og Kaka* (Coffee & Cake). DH enjoyed his w/a generous amt of the spray variety whipped cream & I ate mine plain. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

This is so easy to put together and bakes up nicely browned. I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 Splenda without a problem. According to DH this would be so wonderful with a light orange glaze on top. I loved it as is.

A very nice tea cake. The orange flavor was just right. Really yummy. I would prefer a slightly moister cake, however, and will probably cut back on the flour a bit next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
