This is a yummy cake. I processed the walnuts and orange together. I also used currents instead of raisins, and left them whole. A nice light cake.

Very nice orange flavor. I used butter instead of shortening. The orange juice and sugar topping put on the cake after baking makes it far too sweet for our taste. Would make again with the sugar in the batter reduced to about two thirds of a cup.

Very easy good light cake. I used almonds instead of walnuts and topped with orange cream frosting instead of suggested topping even though I did pour some fresh juice over the top while the cake was still warm. I also used fresh mandarin oranges.

I used to make this recipe in the 1960s and rediscovered the recipe recently. It is one of my favorites and every one I've served it to loves it. You really need a food processer to grind the orange, raisins and nuts together.

This is a great cake full of lots of flavor, with the added benefit that my family of small kids believe that they have to kiss me to get a piece of cake! Thanks for posting it.

This was good ,just not as falvourful as I had hoped. I used butter & 1/2 cup sugar. I think if it had orange /creamcheese icing this would add to the orange flavour?? I will make again & add the icing :)
