MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: sklane
Recipe Category: Dessert
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
This cake keeps a low-fat profile because an orange and raisins replace some of the
fat in the cake. The flavor is especially intense because the fruit is ground.

Baking time: 35 to 40 minutes
