"The ingredients for this dessert come straight from the pantry," writes Lynda McCormick of Burkburnett, Texas. "It's a great little cake for nights when you want something sweet."
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

"This cake recipe is easy, delightful, and homemade! I love the orange flavor and the coconut topping, but not half as much as my husband does. He says it's his favorite lunchbox dessert."
