Marie-Claude's Orange Cake

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 - m...

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

Very Moist. Great cake that is very fast and easy to make.

Good flavor, but the juice didn't soak all the way into the cake, so the bottom was soggy. I used a 9x9 square pan, and it took about 40 minutes.

Very light, healthy, and delicious. Will definitely do again and again. two thumbs up!
