HOLD OFF starting your New Year’s resolutions today! Yes, I said it! You deserve one more holiday treat, and it’s called Orange Juice cake. A definite family favorite, I believe I could bake this cake with my eyes closed. The most requested recipe I have, it has made an appearance at many birthday dinners over the years.
Our good friend Max loved a good slice (or two) of Orange Juice cake and I felt truly honored to bake it each time he requested. I loved that contagious smile as he spied my cake carrier holding that sweet moist cake.
When asked what dessert he wanted to ring in 2015, Cameron (our quiet bearded young man) requested the Orange Juice cake. I’m happy to oblige, he doesn’t ask for much!!
Go ahead, have a slice of Orange Juice cake, you can start on those resolutions tomorrow.
