grated orange zest
fresh orange juice
Lovely and moist. Perfect with a warm cup of tea.
I made an icing with orange zest, orange juice and confectioners sugar and sprinkled with candied orange peel. It was great!
1/22/02 This cake is simple to prepare, but I probably won't be making this again. Beyond the ease of preparation, my family and I found this to be very bland. There was very little orange flavor, and I guess I was expecting something more. The cake was very light in texture, but seemed to be lacking in flavor. Sorry!
I searched and searched for a decent orange cake recipe -- more specifically, one without liqueur (because if you're making an orange cake, surely you want a fresh flavor!) This one sounded great because it was so simple, yet it gave precise mixing directions -- and I wasn't disappointed! The cake was quite moist and tender, due to the addition of the whipped whites at the end. My guests were very pleased with the velvety texture and smooth, natural orange flavor. I used the
"Simply Orange" brand for my orange juice, and I used a tad more than 2 tbs orange zest. Also, I paired it with cream cheese buttercream, which complemented the orange fantastically. If you like your cakes on the sugar side, or if you prefer very light, airy cakes, this one may not be the recipe for you. If you like moist, tender, subtle cakes, you've found your recipe!
I husband and me just love this cake. Is moist
and rich in flavour. I will bake it weekly so that my husband can have it with his daily cup of tea. He is one person who never like any kind of dessert or cakes but I am so glad that he just love this one. Thanks Bee Lian.
This was very good & I had everything on hand. I added an orange glaze *1C conf. sugar , 1/4C orange juice, & 1 tablespoon egg white - let cake cool before making. I used orange marmalade instead of zest & I love it
I made these into cupcakes and they were really flavourful and satisfying :) I used the juice and zest of two sunkist oranges, which means around 2/3 cup of orange juice and 2 tbsp of zest. The taste was just perfect, not overly cloying on the orange and wonderfully sponge-like. I'll definitely make this again! One thing for those cupcake makers to take note though: they don't rise much, so you would probably like to fill it more than 2/3.
light and soft...nice! i iced it with Carol's Orange and Lemon frosting...taste simply great! but if u are icing it try to reduce the sugar in the cake so it won't be too sweet..
I made this recipe for a family party and this cake disappeared from the table fast! I found the cake to be moist and flavoursome and did not ice the cake but simply dusted it with icing sugar. Yum Yum. Will definately make this one again.
