My sister gave me this recipe about 40 years ago, and I still make it often. Whenever I take it to a gathering, there's rarely a crumb left - everyone loves the delightful orange flavor.

My grandmother came from Germany with a treasure trove of recipes. She was a farmer's wife, raised seven children and had 28 grandchildren. Every Christmas and Easter, she hosted the family dinner, cooking everything herself. This coffee cake was one of my favorites.
An ideal treat any time of the day, this moist yellow cake offers a delightful surprise of cinnamon, nuts and brown sugar in every slice. Nanetta Larson relies on a boxed mix to help her bake it in her Canton, South Dakota kitchen.
This has been in the family some time. I am now a great-grandmother myself (I have one little great-granddaughter; in addition, I have three grandchildren and a son), and it's one of the recipes that my mother used to make long ago. I've lived on the farm where I was brought up all my life. I am a jack-of-all-trades in the kitchen, and my husband and I both enjoy hunting.
