The orange zest is definitely required. I added close to 1tbsp of orange zest - made big difference. I also cut back the flour by 1/2 cup as some else suggested and glad I did. It came out ve...

This is an excellent recipe! It may sound like a strange combination but it all works together well. One thing I would change next time -- more orange rind. I accidently bit into a tiny clump of...

I like how easy this was to make. I dont like how sweet it was. I cut out all the white flour and used 2.5 cups of whole wheat flour. I also added a little bit of extra orange juice and some o...
