grated orange zest
2 1/2 cups
This was great. it was so easy to make, and i made it lower fat by adding half the oil, and using applesauce for the other half, and only egg whites. and it still came out great!
Moist, good texture, easy to make, but the flavors don't stand out. It's just okay. If you decide to try it, make sure you watch the time closely. I used 9x13 glass baking dish and it was done in 35 minutes at 350.
This is tasty, and easy to make, but keep an eye on it as it bakes. The first time I tried it, I baked it at 350 for 37 minutes, and it was overdone along the edges and the bottom. I tried it again at 340 for 33 minutes, and it was very good. I topped it with a simple confectioner's sugar/orange juice glaze.
Loved this recipe. I thought the full one cup of honey AND one cup of sugar would make it too sweet for even me, but the finished product was not too sweet at all. To me this is textured more like a snack cake or coffee cake (maybe next time add a little steusel topping?!?). It really needs a cup of coffee with it or a big frosty glass of milk. I dusted the top with powdered sugar just to make it pretty. Excellent.
I made cupcakes and they were really good. They took about 22 minutes and they turned out perfectly. The only thing I did different was that I didn't have any zest.
Such rave reviews on this cake! I did make a bunch of changes though - I halved the recipe, then found out that I didn't have orange juice or oranges. In place of 1 cup of orange juice, I used 1/2 cup of warm instant coffee. In place of the orange zest, I used lemon zest. I'll make this one again and again!
Very tasty cake! It turned out great, pretty moist too. I didn't add the orange zest as I didn't have any. Also, I forgot about the oil, and just remembered to add it in the last minute, just before baking (it was corn oil btw)--still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!
I am not a big fan of honey cake but for some reason I was craving some but I wanted to keep it a healhty as possible. I found this recipe and modified it a bit and found it to be incredibly moist and delicious. I halved the recipe because I didn't want too much and put it in my loaf pan. I used 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. I used 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 stevia and I didn' have any orange zest. I also used organic raw honey and organic orange juice. Everything else was the same. This was easy and fast and very delicious. I can't wait to have some with a cup of tea tonight. Perfect for afternoon guests too.
