Had a surplus of oranges and decided to try this recipe. Unfortunatly mine stuck to the pan and was a bit too moist. I sugest that you also line the pan and cook it a little bit longer. It is not a sweet cake, I put icing sugar on it but think it would be nicer with on orange flavour icing. - 02 Aug 2009
