Who knew that orange would be a fantastic flavor for a cake? I certainly didn’t. I didn’t even want to find out. But with several oranges in the fridge in danger of spoiling (and we were getting tired of orange juice), I was desperate!
Basically, I substituted the milk in a vanilla cake recipe with orange juice and added the zest to the batter.
Then, following a friend’s suggestion, I spread orange marmalade on the top of the cake immediately, right out of the oven.
Wow!!!! It was simply fantastic!!! Even my usually picky mom did not complain at all…
