This cake is very light and not too sweet. It is simple to pull together and really needs nothing special in the way of ingredients or method. One word to describe it? Moist….. and citrusy.
This one is my own creation. I recommend it for dessert, breakfast, snack, the family or even company. You could dress it up with fresh fruit, but it really doesn’t need all that extra attention – it’s perfect as is. I know it looks a bit burned around the edges, but that part is extra nice - kinda chewy and 'mouth friendly.'
Here’s what you need:
½ C vanilla yogurt (I used Greek style yogurt)
1 C sugar
1 C flour
2 t baking powder
½ C vegetable oil
Zest of one large orange
For the glaze:
Juice of one orange
½ C powdered sugar
Here’s what you do:
Whisk together the yogurt, eggs and sugar. Add in the flour and baking soda. Add in the oil and zest. Mix until well incorporated.
Prepare a 9 inch cake pan by buttering it, inserting a round of parchment paper on the bottom and then buttering the paper.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes – do not over bake.It should feel spongy. Cool before removing. Drizzle glaze over the top and allow it to soak in. It is a very thin glaze and will soak in like syrup.
