    I don't "get" the idea of baked apples with orange cake???? I haven't tried this recipe yet but will do so without the apples. Is there some reason for the apple part?

    I was so excited to make this cake for my husband and myself. This cake was very disappointing. To gummy and bitter. I think I'll go back to chocolate !!!!!!!!

    My husband and I loved the cake..great way to use oranges from our orange tree and we love that there is no oil or butter in this cake and very little sugar. It's very moist and as others say gummy, but a super healthy treat ...I used Greek Yogurt and followed the directions exactly. The orange flavor with the lemony glaze is terrific! I would classify this as a pudding type cake.

    Same result. Very gummy. I modified the recipe a little using 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice instead of the oranges, used all the sugar in the dry mixture, added 1 egg, and omitted the yogurt and honey. I also made a 1/2 recipe of vanilla frosting and frosted while it was still warm. Gooey but still slightly gummy but the cake was a hit. (FYI, we like gooey cakes)

    I'm glad I'm not the only one whose turned out chewy and heavy. The taste was good, but too chewy. The only thing I did different from the recipe is used a slightly wider, more shallow cake pan. If I do try and make it again, I will use the 8-by-2 inch pan to see if that makes it any better.

    I agree the cake is chewy, but it does taste kind of healthy - in a good way. I thought the boiling of the oranges directions were very confusing. I wouldn't make it again either.

    The glaze is great! The cake is heavy, chewy and odd. Won't make it again.

    I would like to make this as a two layered birthday cake, can that be done and what could I put in the middle as a filling?

    I tried it with grapefruit--it did NOT turn out very good at all. And I wasn't a fan of the icing either :(
