– 1 teaspoon baking powder


– Pinch of salt

– 3/4 cup sugar

– 1/2 cup oil *

– 2 tablespoons orange juice


1- Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Set aside.

2- Beat the eggs, orange zest and vanilla until it doubles in size. Add sugar, orange juice then oil and beat until it becomes creamy in texture.

3- Add the flour and mix on the lowest speed. Don’t mix more than 15 – 20 seconds.

4- Pour the mixture in a greased baking pan. Put it in a preheated oven at 350F/180C/ gas mark 4, and bake for 40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean from the cake.
