Why I Love This Recipe

I got this recipe from The Big Book of Baking. It is a great cake for the summer time and is so easy to make! It is very light and fresh and has always been a big hit.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 cup butter
4 TBL milk
2 TBL orange juice
2 TBL grated orange zest
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt


Lemon Frosting:

1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar

2 TBL melted butter

2-3 TBL lemon juice (enough to make it spreadable)

1. Preheat the over to 350 F and butter a 9 inch square pan

2. Beat the flour, sugar, eggs, butter, milk, orange juice, zest, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl at a low speed until well blended. Then increase to medium speed and beat for 5 more minutes.

3. Spoon batter into pan and bake for about 40 minutes

4. Cool completely on wire rack

5. Spread the cake with frosting
