Simply delicious is what this cake is. Every bite leaves you craving for another and another and yet another! You have to control yourself otherwise you could eat the whole loaf in one sitting, BY YOURSELF 😀 (that’s how good it is and no exaggeration here!) I served this to my family with vanilla custard, so I did a little play on the words… custard and orange cake served with custard!
