Orange Cake Recipe

The combination of 8 beaten eggs and the gentle folding of the ingredients, creates this lightly flavored orange sponge cake recipe. Orange flavored cakes are nearly as good as orange flavored ice cream.

Gluten Free Orange Cake, Made in Sunflower Shaped Pan

For gluten free Orange Cake, substitute 3/4 of a cup sweet white rice flour and 1/4 cup tapioca flour for the all-purpose flour.

8 Eggs
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 cup Flour
1/2 of an Orange, juice and zest
1 pinch Salt
1 tsp Cream of Tartar

Oven Temp ~ 325°
Baking Time ~
Cake Pan Type ~ 10 inch tube pan or Bundt pan
Preheat oven, thoroughly grease and sprinkle cake pan with fine ground sugar.

Separate the eggs. Beat yolks until thick. Sift together 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup of flour. Add to the beaten yolks and continue beating. Add in the orange zest and juice from half of an orange.
(To make zest, you grate the orange peal with a hand grater.)

In a separate bowl beat egg whites until stiff. Add the salt and 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar to the beaten egg whites, continue to beat egg whites until peaks form. When peaks have formed, beat in 1 cup of sugar and fold whites into the yolk mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake Orange Cake 1/2 hour in a 300 degree oven, then another 1/2 hour in a 325 degree oven.
Invert Orange Cake over plate for 30 minutes or until completely cooled. Remove cooled cake from cake pan.

The peel of an orange has increased vitamin C and fiber. You should only consume the peels of organically grown and processed oranges, where chemical pesticides or herbicides would not have been used on the orange peel.

GO AHEAD AND BAKE,

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
