Whole Orange Cake

"I have made this cake a few times already and everybody loved it! The secret for this cake is that it uses a whole orange (skin and all). If you prefer, you can replace the raisins by dates."

    This was pretty good. I enjoyed it. Didn't make the icing this time. Thank you for sharing.

    I have made this cake many times but use Crisco for the cake and butter for the frosting. My family just loves it and it doesn't last long!

    I took a bite of this cake after I frosted it and did not think this was going to be a great recipe for us. After being refrigerated for a bit the flavors seemed to meld together a lot better. The cake is moist, almost a fruit cake type texture. I used pecans instead of walnuts and did finely chop the nut mixture in my food processor. When squeezing the orange I did only get 1/4 cup of juice so I added orange juice from the carton to make 1/3 cup. The frosting has a light orange flavor and is more of a heavier glaze than frosting. Nice cake, easy to make, and tasty!
