Orange Cinnamon Cake
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup canola oil
The zest of 1 orange (mince it well)
1 tbsp. Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
½ tsp. salt
Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F.
Butter an 8-inch cake pan with 2-inch sides (or use a meatloaf mold)
Beat the eggs with the sugar, then, add the orange juice, oil and orange zest and mix well.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour with the cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture gradually, about 3 separate times and stir after each addition.
Pour your batter into the buttered cake pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes until the middle of the cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove cake from oven, let cool slightly and then invert and allow it to cool completely before you slice it.
Hack: You can slice it and serve it with powder sugar on top; or a generous dollop of whip cream or butter pecan ice cream or finally, with a drip of sea salt caramel sauce.
