How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Mix flour, sugar baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add in order: vegetable oil, egg yolks, water, orange zest and vanilla extract. Beat with a spoon until smooth.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
  • Pour the flour-egg yolk mixture gradually over the beaten egg white and gently fold the two mixtures together to form the cake batter.
  • Pour the cake batter into an ungreased, 10x4-inch tube pan,
  • Bake for about 1-1/4 hours in a 325°F oven until the top of the cake springs back when lightly touched.
  • Invert the cake pan and allow the cake to hang while cooling down.
  • When the cake is cold remove from the pan and frost with the Orange Butter Cream Frosting.
