Orange Cake

I had whole box of oranges from Costco. Some of them were going bad and I had to do something about it. My sister said that she made orange cake last month for her husband's birthday. Inspired by her I searched for an easy recipe and found one on This recipe is quick and easy to make. It is delicious without frosting too. This can be served at tea or as a dessert.


4 eggs
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2  C vegetable oil
2 C flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C fresh orange juice
2 Tbs orange zest(from 1-2 oranges)
1 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350oF. Grease and flour a tube/bundt pan.

2. Beat together the eggs and sugar in a stand mixer or with a had mixer until thick. Gradually beat in the oil.

3. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Then add orange juice. Beat until smooth. Then mix in the zest and vanilla.

4. Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake for 45 minutes, or until tooth pick instered into the cake comes out clean.

5. Allow the cake to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Turn the cake onto a cooling rack to cool completly.

6. Drizzle with orange glaze if desired.

Loaf pan can be used instead of bundt pan.
