Marie-Claude's Orange Cake


"This cake is the one my mother is preparing like a chef! It is really simple but excellent. You cannot fail it. Good luck and degustez avec bon! (The cake will look dark orange so if you use black decoration on it, it is a perfect Halloween dessert)."

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the vegetable oil, sugar and eggs. Stir in yogurt and orange zest. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the mixture just until blended. Pour the dough into a greased 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the cake comes out clean. Poke holes in the cake with a knife, and pour the juice from the oranges over the cake slowly until it has all been absorbed.

This recipe is good, try it, but IT MAKES A 9"x9" CAKE, NOT a 9"x13" one. At least, I can't imagine how so little batter could have made the larger cake. Beyond that though, this was great - moist, very orangey, a nice colour. After the juice soaked in (15 mins or so), I topped the cake with store-bought chocolate icing. That was a good choice - the combination tasted like those chocolate oranges you get at Christmas. I made it for Halloween.


Very good. I used blueberry yogurt and lemon zest and juice.


Great cake. A smaller pan works best. For a different cake, try Meyer's Lemons with this instead of oranges. Delicious. Like others, whipping cream makes a great serve along. After whipping, add just a tad orange zest to the the cream.
