This Moroccan Orange Cake Recipe is quick and easy to make, and delicious without frosting. One very large orange, or two medium oranges, should yield the half cup of fresh orange juice used in the recipe.Just for fun, I've listed the traditional measures used in Morocco which had to go in the directions since Zaar wouldn't accept "tea glasses". You might want to follow that method if you're baking with kids. Please note that tea glasses usually hold 4 to 6 ounces of liquid.I guessed at the serving size.Posted for ZAAR World Tour 2010 and thanks to my good friend Carrol for finding it for me.As an update finally had time to make this, specially after reading all the nice reivews. I did follow a reviewers report and reduced the sugar to 1 cup to cut back a little. Baked in a loaf pan as that's all I had. Then added a glaze that I made with fresh oj instead of milk and everyone loved it. Came out moist, sweet and simalar texture to a pound cake. It was enjoyed by all and hope you enjoy it too.
