Simply delicious. Another winner from Bev. I love your recipes, they never disappoint. This lovely cake had a great crumb, excellent flavor and amazing texture. So moist and tender. It was quick and easy to make. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for Whats on the Menu Tag Game.

This cake tastes delicious. The batter is very thick, almost like cookie dough, so I did add a small amount of orange juice to thin the batter just little. I took it to a community function, and there was none to bring home. Luckily, I taste tested a small slice before I took it. Thanks, Bev.
