Orange Juice Coffee Cake: Dairy Free version

Last week I shared a new recipe I had discovered and really enjoyed: Orange Juice Coffee Cake. Because we had enjoyed it so very very much I wanted to make it again. A friend was visiting us from the US and she cannot usually eat dairy so I adapted the recipe to be dairy free. It is really no different but we preferred this version so I thought I would share.

It is lighter and even more orangey!
