  • Spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan, spreading evenly. Cut through batter with a knife to break air pockets. Bake 27 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Invert pan; cool completely.

  • Loosen cake from sides of pan, and invert onto a plate. Drizzle with Caramel-Orange Sauce; top with Candied Lemons, if desired.
