This cake has a dark orange glow with a moist, dense and chewy center. It is softly aromatic and a lovely accompaniment with tea or a scoop of ice cream. Papayas offer not only the luscious taste and sunlit color of the tropics, but are rich sources of antioxidant nutrients. So for those health puffs you can exchange the sugar ingredient to 3 tablespoons of honey and the cake transforms into a nutritious treat to promote health.
