*pinch of salt
*140g (5oz) soft brown muscovado sugar
*Grated zest of 1 orange
*2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
*115g (4oz) chopped roasted hazelnuts or chopped walnuts (i'm sure you could leave these out the recipe without making too much of a difference to the taste??)
*55g (2oz) desiccated coconut
*2 large eggs
*150ml (1/4 pint) sunflower oil
*juice of 1 orange

For the frosting

*225g (8 oz) cream cheese
