I first made this cake in the mid 1970's, still have the original recipe on the box. It's the best bunt cake ever. The original recipe has four recipes for frosting or glazing but this cake is so delicious on it's own I've never tried the glaze.

Made this many years ago several times. A favorite of all! I remembered it, Googled it to make it again for a special occasion! Great all year round, but especially in summer and at Thanksgiving time with the orange zest ! A no-fail choice!
