An Orange Cake

Still in my orange mood, I made an orange cake for dessert to go with my orange pork chops. Cooking Orange The cake was very moist and full of flavor, which is always a win/win for me. It was also a big hit with my friend Kathy who came over and helped us enjoy it.

The older I get, the less I actually enjoy really super sweet things, so this cake was perfect. It was sweet, but not super sweet. It was just perfectly sweet enough.

Orange Cake

2 cups + 2 TBSP flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup butter at room temperature

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 eggs, at room temperature

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

3 TBSP orange zest

3/4 cup yogurt

The Glaze

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

4 TBSP orange juice

1-2 TBSP milk

Preheat the oven to 350* F or 180* C.

Spray a bundt cake pan with cooking spray.

Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together and set aside.

Cream the butter and sugar together. Then add the eggs 1 at a time, and mix in between in addition. Add the vanilla, orange zest and yogurt and once again mix well. Then add the flour mixture and mix until everything is thoroughly combined without over mixing. Pour the batter into the cake pan and spread it evenly in the pan.

Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the cake is golden and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the cake.

Let the cake cool completely before adding the glaze and the decorations.

Find a friend and enjoy the cake and the good company together.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
