Yummy Orange Cake


This is my mom's orange cake. It is so so good. In Uruguay we have the tradition of drinking an herbal tea called "mate", usually in the morning and afternoon. Ok, more like all day sometimes. My mom used to prepare yummy treats to eat while we were enjoying our mate. This cake was baked sometimes weekly in my home and it is super simple. Fool proof even. There is no way to mess it up except if you mix up the batter too much (just like when we over beat muffins batter). And this is a no frost cake (I absolutely hate frosting and "too much sugar and butter" things, I think it is the Dental Hygienist in me). You can however sprinkle a little powder sugar and garnish with slices of orange and mint.
Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil ( I use Canola)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • juice of one orange
  • 1 orange peeled and cut
  • grated peel of one orange
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
Put all liquid ingredients in a blender and blend really good. In another bowl put the flour and the baking powder and mix. Pour the liquid into the flour and mix until moistened. Grease a baking pan (the bigger the pan the thinner the cake, and viceversa) pour the batter and bake in a preheated 375 oven for about 25 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Once cooled sprinkle powder sugar. Serve and enjoy!
