  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon (12g) baking powder
  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 T) (169g) unsalted butter....Cut into 1/2 inch slices onto waxed paper to soften slightly (still very cool to the touch. If it becomes too soft, refrigerate for a few minutes. Do not soften in microwave
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup (190g) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/2 cup (121g) milk
  • 1 Tablespoon (10g) orange extract
  • zest of 1 orange
  • Orange Coloring Gel (optional) We used a small amount to tint some reserved orange cream cheese frosting so that we could apply it to the cake here and there for a swirled effect.
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (This Recipe uses the Reverse Creaming Method of Mixing.)

  4. In a separate bowl, add the eggs, orange juice concentrate, milk, orange extract and zest.

  6. SLOWLY add 1/2 of the egg mixture, increasing to medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes, the batter will become thick and fluffy. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl.
