I love the aroma of an orange cake baking in the oven. I make this one often, the golden color and incredible aroma. A classic cake for Shabbat, light and airy, moist and golden, with the delicious flavor of oranges. Make it and you’ll enjoy every bite.
26 cm or A4 sized baking tin
300 grams sugar (1.5 cups)
180 ml orange juice (3/4 cup)
120 ml oil (1/2 cup)
350 grams self-raising flour (2.5 cups)
2.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sugar
1. Place the eggs in the bowl of a mixer and start beating on low speed, then slowly add the sugar and increase the mixer speed to medium-high for 2-3 minutes.
2. Lower the speed and add the oil, orange juice, flour, and baking powder. Mix on low speed until well combined.
3. Preheat an oven to 180°C.
4. Grease a baking tin and sprinkle a small amount of sugar on the bottom, then pour in the batter and bake for around 45 minutes or until the cake is set and golden.
