Lemon cake (Κέικ με λεμόνι)

We own and manage 500 orange trees in the village of Fournes, in Chania. Even so, we still manage to run out of oranges at this time of year. The variety we grow is mainly Valencia orange, which is now growing on the trees, and will be ripe sometime after March. So how can I make a cake like my plain cake? The original recipe (GIOTIS Flour Mills) says to use 1/2 cup of milk and the zest of an orange or lemon. I adpated the recipe to use orange juice instead of milk. This time, I have used 1/2 cup of milk and the zest AND juice of a lemon. I then divided the batter into two and mixed some cooca in one bowl, but now that I've tasted it, this would make a refreshing lemon cake, and the cocoa part isn't necessary. It has a tangy taste, perfect with a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon.
