Orange Coffee Cake

My friend Sara sent me this delicious coffee cake recipe that she got from Paula Deen. I had the pleasure this morning of getting to try a piece. It is delicious!

She found that it has a lot of frosting so she adapted it a little bit by adding another can of biscuits, you can try either way.

Thank you Sara! I would love to hear from you any comments or suggestions! Enjoy!
