I made this cake in a springform pan so it was a thick, single layer. It was nicely done in a 350 oven in 25 minutes. To compensate for the extra height, I made an orange syrup (1/2 cup o.j. with 1/4 cup granulated sugar simmered for 7 minutes) to top the cake before icing. I used a skewer to poke many, many holes and while hot, slowly poured the syrup over. When completely cooled, I covered the top with a nicely thick layer of buttercream. I prefer buttercream icing to have some sour cream in it, so I added 2T of it while leaving out 2T of the butter. It gives an ordinary icing a little edge. All in all, a good cake. I was proud to serve and everyone loved it.
