A friend brought this to bible study one night and I had to have the recipe. It is so simple she easily jotted it down from memory.

This cake is SUPER easy! I expected it to taste more like oranges, but it tastes great anyway. I thought an ingredient was missing from the recipe before I stirred in the oranges, because it was so powdery dry. The oranges solved that problem nicely, and we ate it warm from the oven with the sauce. Ymmmmm....

I tried this recipe because it looked fast, easy and contained ingredients that I almost always have on hand. Unfortunately, the results were disappointing... i guess that i had expected something somewhat orangey-tasting, but the cake really tasted just strange and bland. Also had a peculiar aftertaste.
