Received a box of oranges and am trying to find a recipe before they go bad. Wondering if I can substitute oranges for lemons in a lemon pound-cake recipe?
Just a follow-up in case anyone is interested - made Ina Gartens Lemon Cake recipe, substituting orange juice and orange zest. Turned out unbelievable. Didn't change a thing.
I think her lemon cake is the best ever, now the orange cake is tied!
I looked up the recipe, it sounds really good & I have copied. I've been looking for a good lemon cake & will try this one as soon as I can. The orange version sounds good too. I really get a craving for lemon cake in early spring.
Both cakes are so good. The lemon is lemony (not sweet), but so good. If you love lemons, you'll love it! I think it is the best lemon cake I've ever had. So glad the same recipe worked with oranges.
This is an old favorite-- very moist-- quick to put together.I remember Mom teaching me when I was 12 or so, long before I had even heard of a food processor-- used the old foodmill.
