The best thing to do in this weather is to bake :), it save on heating the house too hehehehe, and it fills your belly with good food, baking is my favorite thing to do when its  really cold outside and I have no business being outdoors…

I came up with few recipes today and this cake is one of them, I loved the texture of this cake, moist and a little dense and that was just the perfect cake to be glazed with this delouses simple orange glaze!
