"This is a recipe I have used for many years for a quick and easy dessert. The orange is used with the skin on. I sometimes add chocolate chips and nuts to this recipe, 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or 1/4 cup unsalted crushed nuts, although I think you could use any nuts really or even some dried fruit. This is a very moist cake, so I serve it warm with cream, although it can be served cold with a citrus icing."
