Quick Orange Coffee Cake

I've found a few coffee cake recipes that I'd like to try. Coffee cake is intended to be dry and crumbly, yet somehow very delicious. Here is a Pilsbury recipe for an orange twist on coffee cake. It is delicious!!

Here is a recipe I just found for a Paula Dean Orange Coffee Cake that looks even more delicious!
