Beat and Bake Orange Cake

This quick orange cake is delicious without the frosting. I sometimes just sprinkle icing sugar on the top. This recipe can be used to make two 8-inch cake layers or a 9x5-inch loaf. If making a loaf cake, bake for 60 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ½ cups superfine sugar

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ cup orange juice

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 3 eggs, beaten

  • 1 ½ teaspoons grated orange zest

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.

  2. In a measuring cup, combine milk, 1/2 cup orange juice, oil, beaten eggs, and 1 1/2 teaspoon orange zest. Set aside.

  3. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl. Mix in sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk mixture. Stir until thoroughly combined.

  4. Divide batter into prepared pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

  5. To make Orange Butter Frosting: Cream butter until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 tablespoons orange juice to bring to spreading consistency. Stir in vanilla and 1 teaspoon orange zest.
