  • Simple and yet I can tell it would be oh so good! I love orange in cakes more than lemon. Probably because you don’t see it as often.

    • admin

      That’s right, I don’t know way people don’t use orange more often, I love lemons but orange is equally good.

  • How lovely to use your grandmother’s recipe! This sounds wonderful.

      Thank you.

  • Love family recipes simply because I feel so much love gets passed on through the food! My guess is that the brown sugar in your cake marries very well with the orange and becomes kind of caramely. Yum! And yes, I imagine the citrus does make it perfectly moist and wonderful =)

    • admin

      Oh my God! Yes you nailed it, creates a caramel type crumb so delicious.

  • It’s an honor to have you bake with us, Kathya! Happy anniversary and thank you for being a part of bundtamonth! Love this tender, moist orange cake!
