    1Steve's Note:

    This is a really nice tasting cake with a nice orange flavor but not overpoweringly so. It's traditionally a fall and winter cake when dates and currents are more plentiful. However the sunny orange flavor makes it good in the spring and summer too. In those month when dates are not around you can substitute small raisins.
