This recipe came from The Methodist Church cookbook "Our favorite recipes"
Even though Aunt lil was a Baptist, her orange cake found its way into the cookbook via parishioner, T. Coonins, which just goes to prove that great cakes are ecumenical !

Obtained this recipe from the menu at "The Cliff House" resort & Spa in Ogunquit, Maine were my husband and I spend a week-end their on our Anniversary every year~~
