"I used the recipe for Cherry Puddles cake as the basis for my “Citrus Orange cake.”

In place of egg substitute I used 3 whole eggs, because I had them on hand already. I didn’t have buttermilk, so I used regular. I added 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, instead of 1. The biggest change was that I added about ¾ cup of orange pulp(made by grating several sliced oranges) to the batter.
Instead of putting cherry pie filling on the top of the cake I made a glaze out of confectioners sugar and some juice from a jar of maraschino cherries.
The cake was deliciously awesome!"
