Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10" x 15" cake pan. Cream together the sugar, butter, salt and eggs. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the orange juice; mixing well after each addition. Bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. NOTE: The cake will have a very light appearance after baking.
  2. While cake is baking, blend together the sugar and cinnamon for the topping.
  3. When the cake is done, remove from oven and immediately rub the 1/2 stick of butter over the top of cake until butter is completely melted. Then sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly on top. Cool before cutting.

Interesting cake. Seemed like alot of flour and sugar, but it turned out moist and nice. The orange juice flavor is a bit strong, but goes well with the cinnamon topping. This would be a great cake to make with the kids, as it's super easy, and uses ingredients that would be in any pantry.

Very easy and tasty/moist/sweet. I would add some walnuts to topping next time. Also made the crumb mixture and topped it after cake was in oven for about 20 minutes and baked it an extra 5 minutes or so at the 35-40 minutes. Good way to use up extra orange juice.

Will not be making this again. If you like more of a bread tasting cake you'll like it. With no frosting I was expecting the cake to be sweeter. If I made this again I would add a citrus glaze to make the orange flavor stand out even more. Also to add more sweetness.
