501884430_41672ece99I love this cake.  Most people aren’t all that thrilled with the idea of an orange cake, but I’ve never had anyone NOT like it once they tried it.  It goes really well with vanilla icing or maple icing.

Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease or line with parchment paper a standard round or 8 x 8 inch square pan.

In a large bowl whisk together:

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt

In a medium mixing bowl (or I use a large measuring cup) mix together:

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Pour wet ingredients into dry and whisk until smooth.  Pour into cake pan and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
