    I made muffins instead of a cake, just cos it's easier for lunchboxes. I used two oranges for this. Used all the zest (probably about 4 tsp)but there still wasn't enough juice as per the recipe so I added half a cup of apple sauce (I keep it in the freezer as it usually makes low fat cakes more moist anyway). I also beat the eggs and (brown)sugar together till creamy before adding the other ingredients. The mix was a bit wet so I added another half a cup of flour. These were really tasty with a nice strong orange flavour. Great for the whole family, only problem is that they need to be eaten pretty quickly as they dry out a bit!  -  23 Aug 2011


    Lovely taste with the cinnamon and honey. Light and fluffy while still warm.  -  22 Aug 2011


    This was great. it was so easy to make, and i made it lower fat by adding half the oil, and using applesauce for the other half, and only egg whites. and it still came out great!  -  11 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
