Serve pieces of this easy-to-make cake with a glass of cold milk or a cup of coffee and wait for the compliments...as well as the requests for seconds!!
- 2 cups sugar
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 4 cups flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 cups orange juice
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 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.
- While cake is baking, blend together the sugar and cinnamon for the topping.
- 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 end...total 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.
