1 1/2 cups
3 1/2 teaspoons
grated orange zest
fresh orange juice
scrumptious! particularly if one avoids questionable substitutions...
I made this cake for my son's birthday. I used Splenda rather than white sugar so the layers did not rise very high. Although he loved the cake, I thought it had too much orange which overpowered the lemon flavor which gave it a "funny" taste. I think my son said he loved it because he didn't want to hurt my feelings. I doubt I'll be making this cake anytime soon.
I needed a recipe for white cake so I used this one without the lemon filling (I hate lemon filling) and it came out great. I made it with strawberries and whipped cream icing and I added an extra splash of milk to make sure it was moist, and it was eaten up within 2 days!!!
I made this cake for my moms birthday, and it came out wonderfully!!! Very easy to make, very moist, and very light!!! perfect for summer!!! i used heavy whipping cream for a frosting which fit perfect with the light cake!! i can't say enough good things about this recipe
I really loved this cake. I gave it four stars because despite liberally greasing the cake pans it stuck to the bottom making have to make two batters for one occasion. I used wax paper on the second attempt.
The flavor and texture of the cake were excellent. For the filling, I used a little more lemon juice and a little less orange juice, and I threw in some lemon zest, too, because I wanted a more lemony flavor. It turned out really nicely.
This cake tasted very good. HOWEVER: 1. It stuck even to wax paper! 2. The batter was a weird consistancy and looked curdled. 3. It was terribly crumbly. It did not stay in one peice. 4. It was overly sweet. So if looks don't matter this is a good cake for you!
I'd lost the white cake recipie I used to make my Rhubarb Cake and used this one instead . . . it's great! Cake is light and delicate, top browns nicely. I don't miss my old recipie!
