I didn't want to buy orange liquer just for this recipe so I used orange extract instead. Great cake! Moist and lots of orange flavor

This cake was EXCELLENT and will make again. I used 2 what I considered large clementines. Instead of saying medium a weight would be more helpful. I also did not peel the clementines before processing, just cut them and put them in the food processor.

Wow! I made this cake and the icing for my husband's birthday, and it was absolutely the best cake made from scratch (and so much better than a box mix)!
I read the other review and also added 2 tsp vanilla to the recipe. I did not have the orange liqueur, so that was omitted from the icing. I love extra citrus flavor so I didn't peel the clementines in the cake batter or the icing. I fixed both in the processor, and that made everything so easy. Just an overall beautiful and delicious cake.

I made this cake in a lovely heart-design bundt pan. It is a moist, creamy cake, like a pound cake but with more texture. The glaze is wonderful. My pan was a 10 cup capacity versus the 8 cup called for in the recipe. I increased the ingredients by 1/4, but it did not rise to fill the pan. The recipe does not say to peel the clementines for the batter (some clementine recipes use them with their skin), but I did. I also added two tsp. of vanilla to the batter, which I think enhanced the flavor. Several of my men friends absolutely loved the rich, orange citrus flavor and one asked for the recipe. This makes an elegant, pretty dessert.
