This is really an OUTSTANDING cake! I made it today for company tonight, and changed things a little! Because of the picture--& that in the intro you say the cake is baked in a bundt pan--I did just that, & during the baking found that I wouldn't be able to spread the glaze over the hot cake & continue baking. So, near the end of the baking of the cake, I made the glaze. When the cake was taken out of the oven, I poked holes in the top & brushed the sides & top of the hot cake several times with the hot glaze. And, although it turned out great, I want to make it again & follow the steps indicated, just to see what the difference might be! Many thanks for posting this recipe!
What else could I expect?...but another ter"ruff"ic dessert from cookiedog! This is a REALLY good cake...I especially like the icing...soooo yummmy! I used golden raisins, pecans and a fresh orange. The cake is so soft and sweet and flavorful. It was easy to make too. Thank you for another keeper recipe cookiedog! Made for Holiday Tag.
Very nice cake. I used butter instead of shortening (and upped the amount to about 2/3 cup). Very flavourful, and great with coffee.
Made this for a bridal shower this weekend. It was a hit. I made it in a bundt pan and realized I was out of raisins so used craisins instead. No orange zest- used a T of orange marmalade. Mom will love this- have to make again when everyone is here for Turkey day ! Thanks for posting!!
