MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 25, 2011

OMG!! I am 63 yrs old and this is my new favorite cake!! (and I've eaten a lot of cake in my time) I could not believe it had no eggs & was so thick(didn't exactly 'pour' into pan). Thought I had done something wrong...but NO! It is awesome! And EASY! Looks like you know what you're doing when it is finished! The sliced oranges on top give it presentation jazz! Make it just like this before you tweek it!
