Heavenly!! I was looking a quick and easy recipe today for a vanilla cake and this was just the ticket! The flavour of the orange and lemon gave it that bit more interest without overwhelming the vanilla. I used a light vegetable oil and milk instead of the buttermilk. It rose up beautifully and was a delight enjoyed by all! Thanks, Bev for sharing this, it's definitely one that I'll be making again and agian.
