Reviews for Orlando Orange Fritters
"If you want a quick, fatty alternative to a fried yeast doughnut this is it. However, the orange taste does not sufficiently mask the oily fried exterior. I did add extra grated orange as the other reviewer suggested, but still found the result unsatisfactory."
"This is wonderful - I will definitely make it again! The only change I will make next time is to use 2Tbsp orange peel instead of 1, but that is just a personal preference. Wonderful Recipe!"
