I don't know who Lucy is, but I love this cake. It is nice, light and citrusy.

This was a very moist coffeecake with a slight orange flavor. My orange didn't have a very orange scent when I was zesting it which might have been the reason for the light orange flavor. Very easy to make. Thanks pines506. Bullwinkle.
