    Great recipe.  Super moist and very tasty.  I made this for my dad who has type 2 diabetes and normally misses out on the sweets at our family parties. My kids who I wasn't expecting to eat it also loved it.  Will definitely make again!

  • Thankyou for your comment,

    Thankyou for your comment, however if you look closely in the ingredients list it clearly mentions the zest along with the juice of a large orange. I presumed that was enough and one could choose to either use a zester (my choice) or prepare it using the TM. I will try to be more specific in the future tmrc_emoticons.;)

  • I was pretty impressed with

    I was pretty impressed with the taste of this recipe and will definately make it again! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! The only thing I would suggest is that you read the recipe method over before making as it asks you to add the zest, but doesn't tell you when to zest the orange peel, however fortunately I have 2 bowls! So make sure you read the recipe first and organise and prep your ingredients! But the taste of the cake will be definately worth your efforts! Thoroughly enjoyed this cake!
