Marie-Claude's Orange Cake Recipe
This cake is the one my mother is preparing like a chef! It is really simple but excellent. You cannot fail it. Good luck and degustez avec bon! (The cake will look dark orange so if you use black decoration on it, it is a perfect Halloween dessert).
Quick and easy to prepare with a nice orange flavor however I found it dries out very quickly so this cake is probably at its best if served as a dessert, with whipped cream etc., right after baking
Great cake. A smaller pan works best. For a different cake, try Meyer's Lemons with this instead of oranges. Delicious. Like others, whipping cream makes a great serve along. After whipping, add just a tad orange zest to the the cream.
This cake really is easy. I was doubtful about all that juice sitting on top of the cake, but the cake is dense and it does not get too mushy with the juice. I served this with whipped cream and little clementine sections on top. It probably would also work with canned mandarin oranges. The juiciness of the oranges on top, and the moisture of the whipped cream, together with the flavorfulness of the cake, made this a very good dessert.
Apart from subbing applesauce for the oil, didn't make any changes - it was such an easy cake to make, and it looks and tastes amazing!! The hit of orange is exactly what the citrus lover in me was looking for.
Very Moist. Great cake that is very fast and easy to make.
All the other reviewers are right, definitely made for a smaller dish, but GREAT flavor!!
Cook for 25 minutes. Really needs a glaze.
This fall-inspired cake is loaded with fresh cranberries and orange zest and juice for tangy, sweet flavor.
