  • Measure the flour, 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, softened butter or margarine, orange juice and the eggs. Beat until smooth about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the walnuts and pour the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (for 45 to 50 minutes) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cake stand in pan for 20 minutes. Invert cake onto a serving plate and ice with Brown Sugar Glaze.

  • To Make Brown Sugar Glaze: Combine the confectioners' sugar, water, 1/2 cup brown sugar and the vanilla. Add more sugar or water to make a proper consistency for a barely pourable glaze.

Wonderful cake! I increased the grated orange zest to 2 Tbl. (1 Tbl. wasn't enough for me last time I made this cake.) I would make that same adjustment next time - 2 Tbl. was perfect! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This coffeecake has an excellent flavor. We all love it. I didn't care for the brown sugar glaze though and so I used an orange glaze of conf. sugar o.j. vanilla and orange zest instead. It complimented the cake really well. Read More

A good recipe but don't expect a majorly orange taste - it's actually quite a mild cake. Keep the graham crumbs large if you want a crunchy texture otherwise you won't notice them at all. I wanted to cut use up oj so I made the glaze from oj sugar and cornstarch and it turned up quite well. Read More

This cake is incredibly easy to make and just fabulous. As suggested by a reviewer I did an orange glaze but ended up also adding lemon and lemon zest and it came out real good. Read More

This cake was pretty dense but with added orange zest (based on other reveiwers input) and a little OJ in the glaze subbed for the water it had a nice citrusy and nutty flavor. My tasters loved this one. Read More

I read the reviews and made alterations with more orange and zest. It was moist and well balanced. The sauce for the topping was also using more zest and orange juice with heavy cream that provided a caramel favor yet lite taste. It is a rich cake so the serving are many like 20. I used the bundt cake pan and baked for about 45 minutes at 350 temp. Read More
