This is an excellent, easy recipe that yields a moist, delicious and wonderfully light cake. I used raw sugar because that's what I had on hand, and, once the cake had cooled, I added a glaze made with about 1/4 cup icing sugar, two tablespoons of orange juice and a tablespoon of lemon juice (I always tweak the quantities until I get the result I want though, so if you make it you may want to play with them too). It didn't make it past the weekend! - 15 Oct 2015
