About this Recipe:

This is a long time family favorite recipe. My mum has been baking this cake for as long as I can remember, with different decorations and for different occasions. You can easily change the orange juice to any other favorite juices and enjoy a new recipe. These days I am making it for my family and friends and the recipe is a hit every time. Hope you can enjoy it too.
