    Delicious and perfect for the fall! Only disappointment is that I wasn’t able to get juice out of the two etrogs I have. Perhaps I should have used them immediately after Sukkot. I did use the etrog zest.

    on two other websites this same cake was shown but it only called for 1/4 cup of margarine. what is correct the 1/4 or the 3/4 cup.
