The pleasant hue and fresh citrusy aroma of this Orange Cake are sure to attract you! And when you do bite into a slice, the outcome will be even better than what you expected because the fresh orange juice and orange rind used in the batter give this cake a very refreshing flavour, comparable to the experience of biting into an orange cream biscuit. Condensed milk balances the citrus notes beautifully and gives this cake a rich, milky touch too.
