A question about a recipe: Clementine Pound Cake

I have a question about step 4 on the recipe "Clementine Pound Cake" from SavvyJulie. It says:

"Stir in 1 cup of the flour, followed by the salt, vanilla, cardamom, clementine zest and juice."

Is it ok to use oranges instead of clementines in this recipe?

Yes, I think you could use oranges or tangerines just as well!

I am not the person who penned the recipe but I would think that using orange would be fine, also if you can get tangerines that might be better than orange. Pixie tangerines have a very similar taste to clemantines.
