Orange Sour Cream Pecan Cake

Orange Sour Cream Pecan Cake

I got a bag full of cuties (oranges) from Kimi the other day.  There were so many of them that I didn’t know if we were going to consume them in a timely manner.  We’re not fruit people.  Plus, they weren’t all that sweet (more of a reason why we’re not fruit people) so I decided to bake with them.  Luckily they’re small so I used four of them in this recipe.  That’s half the bag, whew! I hate waste.  Now I just need to figure out what to do with the other half of the cuties.  If you like orange and pecans, this will be a new favorite.
