This was absolutely delicious, very light and fluffy. I used midori instead of cointreau which we really enjoyed. I would prefer a ml measurement for the orange juice though as oranges are different sizes.

What a disaster of a cake! I followed the recipe to a T, and it was so watery. There must be a miss print or something, as there was no way this cake was setting even though I cooked it longer. It was so gluggy inside, like a set egg pudding. What a total waste of oranges and eggs. :(
