This turned out very tasteless. I followed it exactly, and though it looked wonderful, it had no flavor what so ever. I'm thinking....is it missing salt??

it was ok.

I didnt have orange extract, but it was good! The cake was a little drier than some coffee cakes I have made.

I followed the recipe both times. Love the taste, but they tend to be a little fall apart-y.
