This cake came about last night, as I had leftover pineapple juice from other recipes I wanted to use...so I used it in this cake... I love orange and pineapples, so how could I go wrong?...the orange zest gives a wonderful flavor...it's so moist and delicious...this cake would also be great with an orange frosting, instead of the glaze..

Enjoy!
