Rated 4 out of 5 by from I plan on making this for our family dinner on Easter Sunday. I plan on making this for our family dinner on Easter Sunday. I was raised in a Jewish home. My husband and my children are Catholic, but have had the opportunity to experience a lot about the Jewish faith. This will be my opportunity to treat them to another. Your reader from 2003, who rated this recipe, didn't read the recipe very well. There is no regular flour in it. Will let you know how our family liked this recipe after Easter.

I omitted the orange rind from the cake mix and substituted orange marmalade for the apricot jam as the glaze. This made the citrus taste more subtle. I used a 10" springform pan (all I had) and baked it less, using the toothpick test as a guide. I got a flatter more torte-like cake (more servings). The cake got raves for taste and presentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hands-down success! A hands-down success! Delicious to the last crumb. The only change was to use butter instead of margarine. This cake gets better--moister--as it sets, so it easily can be made a couple of days in advance. Tricky part will be keeping folks out of it until serving time! I kept it under a glass cake dome. Well done, Kraft!
