    This is a yummy cake. I processed the walnuts and orange together. I also used currents instead of raisins, and left them whole. A nice light cake.  -  10 Feb 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Very easy good light cake. I used almonds instead of walnuts and topped with orange cream frosting instead of suggested topping even though I did pour some fresh juice over the top while the cake was still warm. I also used fresh mandarin oranges.  -  10 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
