Starbucks Orange Cake by Elena’s Pantry

I tried this orange cake for the first time to bring to my dad’s house the Friday night of Easter weekend, and my family – including my little five-year-old taste-tester brother – really enjoyed it. It is not as sweet as you would expect, especially since the entire orange is used in the recipe, but it really is rich, creamy, and the perfect spring desert. Though I used 100% organic ingredients, it does call for quite a bit of sweetener, so I had to stop myself from having a second slice!
