A joy to make. Honestly, I had some oranges left over and found this recipe by chance. It's absolutely delicious. Actually, I emptied 50g choc chips into the mix, they settle on to the bottom but its quite lovely. Stays very moist, will make again very soon!

Fabulous recipe. I added a touch of Grand Marnier!

Lovely texture, stayed moist for 4 days in a tin; not quite the same hit in flavour as lemon drizzle cake but one I will certainly make again.
