    6      tablespoons   fresh orange juice
    6      tablespoons   skim milk

 ame, bake in two loaf pans that are 5 inches (13 cm) in length for 25 to 30 min

 erted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Transfer cak
 e to a wire rack to finish cooling.  Wrap coo led cake in plastic wrap or alumi
 num foil and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Cut into 1/3-inch (.85 cm) slic
 es.  (Makes about 10 servings)
