The first time I saw someone make this cake it was like watching a magic trick. Whole oranges into boiling water, “what the …” we were about to defy the laws of nature, or at least common sense. This was then followed by the anticipation of having no idea where this was going to go to next. Then the final result is a cross between a cake and a pudding, a cake recipe so crazy it works. Needless to say, despite not being a real bakery type, I have made this a number of times, so far no complaints.
