"Delicious, moist cake! My guests said it was like Starbuck's lemon cake but moister. I made a froosting with 8 oz cream cheese, 1 stick butter, 3 c powdered sugar, 3 T orange juice & 1/2 t of fiori di sicilia (sold at King Arthur's website). Excellent orange cake!"

"Fabulous, but with changes even better--

I use fresh orange juice, 1 t. vanilla extract,
4 eggs and 1/4 c. sugar for cake. In the frosting I use fresh orange zest and juice."

"Wonderfully simple and really tasty. I didn't have any marmalade in the house, so I just used orange juice to taste."
