      I was really noughty and errrr.... not just added half a cup, but actually doubled the sugar after tasting the batter. It is sweet now, not overly though, and that's the way we love it. I also doubled the orange blossom water. Very unique recipe.

      I made this cake for my dad. He loved it! He said it isn't too sweet and that's how he likes it. Thanks!

      UNUSUAL ORANGY DELICIOUS! I made a half recipe as directed with pecan chips. I tasted the batter and it seemed a little bitter so I added 1/2 cup Splenda and am glad I did (I did use the 1/2 cup sugar first). Mine was done in 30 minutes baked in a glass baking dish coated with baking spray. It turned out as a lovely crumbly cake with an awesome orange flavor and undertones of nutty sesame. I wonder if peanut butter could be subbed for the tahini? Freddy Cat says thanks for the sweets! Made for the ZWT4.
