Still in my orange mood, I made an orange cake for dessert to go with my orange pork chops. Cooking Orange The cake was very moist and full of flavor, which is always a win/win for me. It was also a big hit with my friend Kathy who came over and helped us enjoy it.
The older I get, the less I actually enjoy really super sweet things, so this cake was perfect. It was sweet, but not super sweet. It was just perfectly sweet enough.
