Homemade orange cake

The orange cake is a delicious dessert with a citric and aromatic flavor. Its texture is spongy and its color vibrant, thanks to the use of orange juice and zest in the recipe. It is a perfect option to enjoy as a snack or as an accompaniment on special occasions.


• 2 cups (250 g) of wheat flour

• 1 cup (200g) sugar

• 3 eggs

• 1/2 cup (120 ml) vegetable oil (such as sunflower oil)

• 1/2 cup (120 ml) of freshly squeezed orange juice

• Zest of 2 oranges

• 1 teaspoon (5 g) of baking powder

• 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g) of baking soda

• A pinch of salt

Make sure you have all the ingredients ready and the oven preheated to the right temperature for a delicious and well-cooked orange cake.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a cake pan with a little oil or butter, and sprinkle with flour to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This helps aerate the dry ingredients and remove any clumps.
  3. In another bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until smooth and slightly foamy.
  4. Add the oil, orange juice and orange zest to the egg and sugar mixture. Mix well until all the liquid ingredients are incorporated.
  5. Little by little, add the sieved dry ingredients to the liquid mixture, stirring gently until a homogeneous mass is formed. Don’t over mix, just enough to combine the ingredients.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and lightly tap the pan on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean and dry.
  8. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, unmold the cake and place it on a wire rack to cool completely. Ready! Now you have a delicious orange cake to enjoy. You can decorate it with dusted icing sugar or even make an orange glaze to further enhance the flavor. Enjoy!
