This is a really good cake, nice texture and not too "from a mix" tasting. I had my heart set on making this before I checked to see if I had all the ingredients on hand and, of course, I didn't. I didn't have oranges or orange juice. What I did have was a bottle of Key Lime juice that needed to be used up. So I substituted 1/2 cup lime juice and 1/4 cup water for the 3/4 cup of orange juice and instead of lemon extract I added orange extract. I was a litle concerned the cake would be too tart from all that lime juice. It definitely is tart, but not too much so, especially with the glaze over it. I'll make this again, next time hopefully I'll have orange juice! If you like icing on your cake, don't expectit from this recipe, the one included here is more a syrup intended to soak into the cake.
