If I feel like baking a cake “just to have around,” this is likely to be the one. It is moist, tender and buttery, perked up with plenty of citrus flavor.

Aside from a couple of minor changes (I’ve replaced the original sour cream with yogurt and lightened the sugar syrup slightly), this is, as my friend Sue Crouse says, “a very old recipe indeed—and wonderful.”
