Orange Kiss-me cake
I almost bake every week. In school kids see other kids eating cookies and cakes which are store brought. i don't like store brought cake or cookies. So i end up baking a simple cake for the full week which i send to their school for snack time. I give them good lunch and the cake goes as snack.
Recently when i went to Sears outlet here i chanced upon Best of Pillsbury Bake-Off book. And i just loved the contents in this recipe book. Surely not going to do most of the recipes. But the pics tempted me to buy this book which was on sale. Brought this book last week and ended up doing this recipe.
The main thing in this recipe attracted is the notes on the recipe. It reads like this *Recipe by Lily Wuebel, Redwood City,CA. Bake-Off Contest, New york City, 1950*. So the year attracted me to go through the recipe. It's simple and little different recipe...We all enjoyed the cake and hope you to will enjoy making and eating it. Here goes the recipe :-
Raisins 1/2 cup
Walnuts 1/3 cup
