WARNING! WARNING!! WARNING!!! Do not make this cake if you are expecting a tender fine crumbed cake!!!! The cake is not very sweet, and has a dense coarse texture due to the oats and optional nuts -- the cake bursts with orange and cranberry flavors and is ideal for breakfast! Based on $200 prize tested recipe from Better Homes and Gardens September 08 issue -- tube pan category, submitted by Michelle Gauer, Spicer MN.
NOTE: for a more robust orange flavor, add 1 teaspoon Recipe #340691 -- as a personal preference, add toasted chopped nuts, if desired! -- I baked the cake in a 10-in tube pan and I think the pan is too large for the recipe. The baked cake only rose to fill the tube pan about half full -- Bake in a Bundt pan for a prettier presentation!
