Author Notes

I love the original cake, but sometimes a 9" cake is too much cake for myself and my husband. Unless I make it for a dinner party, it ends up going to waste. I also made various other changes as well including cutting back the milk and olive oil to half cup each, and opted for 1 extra large egg instead of halving an egg. I also like boozy cakes and went for 1/3 cup of triple sec and cut out the orange juice altogether. —Gen16C
