orange cake

 Citrus season is among us, and I have a yummy orange cake recipe for you today.

I love lemons, limes, oranges, you name it. 

This cake is so fresh and has the best texture with the creamiest frosting.

It is filled with orange zest inside and on top.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups confectioners sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9x5" pan or a bunt cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt set aside.
  3. In a different bowl, add the melted butter, oil, sugar, and beat until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time beating the mixture after adding each egg.

  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and gently mix for a few seconds.
  7. Pour the orange cake batter into the prepared baking pan.
  8. Bake, the batter for 40 to 45 minutes or until its golden and a fork inserted in the middle of the cake, comes out clean.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer it to a cooling rack, after 10 minutes remove the cake from the pan and place it over the cooling rack to cool completely.
  11. In a large bowl combine the sugar, orange juice and orange zest. Whisk until there are no lumps.
  12. Add in the butter then whisk together again until smooth. If it is not pourable, you can microwave it for 30 seconds or so.
  13. After the cake is cooled pour it over.
  14. Let the mixture sit if you microwaved it, otherwise you can pour it over your cake or loaf.
