TWD - Odile's Fresh Orange Cake


For Tuesday with Dorie this week, I made Odile's Fresh Orange Cake.  This is just a lovely, light, spongy orange cake that is moistened with orange syrup.



You could have fancied this up with poached oranges on top, but I have limited time so left out this optional extra.

This is a beautiful cake that is a cinch to make - I'd make it again.

To see what the other Dorie bakers thought of this cake (or the alternate recipe, Matcha Financiers), visit the LYL section of the TWD website

In Arizona this time of year we have citrus coming out of our ears, this looks so moist and delicious, love Dorie's cake recipes.

Your cake looks so delicious and moist. We loved it at our house but now I want to try other variations on it.

Yours has a lovely color to it- it looks fabulous as is without adding all the poached items. Reminds me of a type of old school, homemade pound cake type dessert. And so quick and easy it could be dangerous LOL. Nice job !

That cake just makes me want to pucker up and dig in, Gaye! Gorgeous. I kinda like it not all "fancied" up:)

Thanks for sharing, Gaye...

This was a simple cake. I should make it again and try and get it right. I hope your co-workers enjoyed the cake.

The cake does look super moist and fluffy! And while it may appear simple, anyone tasting it will appreciate the richness of the flavour! Good job!

Orange Cake...now we are talking!! That looks gorgeous, and I love citrus anything! Well, not if you put chocolate with it, but maybe everything else! Really pretty picture of it, too.
