I first had this cake at my in-laws (my SIL is Marilyn!)over the Christmas holidays in Denver, just after my husband and I were married. It is a deliciously moist cake, full of citrus flavor, that is like a taste of sunshine!

My mom got this same recipe from a former employee. I love it, it got me to actually eat cake! It is the best cake with tea, by itself or for a birthday.
