I squeeze my own oranges, and let me tell you: The more pulp you leave in the juice the better! Trust me, this cake is DELICOUS!!! You MUST try it! Just be careful when removing it from the pan. Enjoy!

Mmmm sounds delicious, but what exactly is sweet butter?

Basically, unsalted butter :)

Thanks so much for replying back! I've never heard of unsalted butter being called sweet butter, but you learn something new every day. I'm definitely going to try out your recipe, maybe this week. I'll let you know how it turns out! :)

I know, I was confused when I first saw the recipe too! lol. Good luck! It's yummiest while it's still warm! Yummmmm! Enjoy!

Sounds incredibly decadent! I bet this would be good if you put coconut in the bottom of the pan before adding the batter!

Ooh, I bet that would be good! I'll try that next time!

Yay! You will love it! Let me know how it turns out ^_^

this sounds seriously yummy! I'm making it tomorrow!<br />
thank you for the recipe : )

That sounds amazing, it never occurred to me that you could do an orange cake, even though I see lemon cake all the time.... I'm gonna bake some cookies, lol.... Pre-made, of course :)
