  1. Great looking cake! What size of pan should I use? Thanks!

  2. Use a bundt, nothing fancy with intricate designs or it'll be difficult to unmould it, also check the chart here to find an equivalent to a bundt, I believe this is one of the bigger size bundts that she always ues (the angel food cake style bundt) http://www.joyofbaking.com/PanSizes.html

  3. I made it today and we loved it! Greetings from Italy

  4. Bella, came across your post and made the cake... PERFECT. Finally the perfect orange cake.
    Thanks so much

  5. Gosh this cake is so easy to make. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

  6. If you make a syrup with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup orange juice and pour over the hot cake makes it even more yummy!!!

  7. Do you think would be a good idea if I put some blueberries in it?

  8. What kind flour? Is it all purpose or cake flour

  9. Approx how much orange juice on oz or ml is required?

  10. I wonder how craisins would be in it?

  11. All purpose flour and craisins would be nice, sure. Juice of one medium sized orange. So you can count on getting 3 to 4 medium sized oranges in 1 pound. On average, one medium orange has 2 ounces (or 4 tablespoons) of orange juice in it and contains 10 fruit sections. One orange also has 2 to 3 tablespoons of orange zest on it.
