    Great cake! easy and tasty I didnt have a fresh orange so added another couple of tablespoons juice I also skewered top and drizzled some fresh orange juice over the top. (I halved the amount and baked in a small loaf tin)

    this cake was good. dense and moist on the inside, but the crust had a biscuit texture which i loved. i halved the recipe, due to the advice from past reviewers; it came out alright (though a little thinner than the normal cake size). one thing is, the orange flavour wasn't quite enough, even though i doubled the amount of orange zest and orange juice. i would add more the next time to get a stronger orange taste! added cream cheese frosting to the cake, and it was well received by my friends! thanks.

    Barb, you definitley have a winner with this one! I used all butter, and used orange concentrate for the juice, the flavor was wonderful! Loved the addition of coconut, very tropical! Very easy to make, and a cake I will make a lot. Thanks!

    Hello Barb; Made your cake yesterday, and it was scrumptous, nice and moist. The coconut added a nice touch to the taste. This will be on my priority list in the future. Thanks for the recipe. "Uncle Bill"

    This was very good!! Very dense and moist!! I did have some problems though -- this makes a LOT of batter. More than my little handheld Kitchenaid mixer could handle. Also -- you need to use a very LARGE bowl. I used a 10 inch tube pan & the batter overflowed! I attribute these little "problems" to my own lack of expertise in baking. I would definitely make this cake again though!! The taste was awesome & the hint of coconut was a perfect final touch to a great flavor.
