  • Add oil and vanilla to egg yolks.
  • Add sugar and salt while beating.
  • Continuing to beat, add orange juice alternately with sifted dry ingredients.
  • Beat some more until creamy.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff, and fold into egg yolk mixture.
  • Pour batter to about 1 1/2" from the top of an ungreased 10" tube pan (an angel-food cake pan, with removable sides.) Bake at 325 degrees F.

  • (There will be enough batter left over for an additional 8" or 9" round cake.) Invert to cool (important so cake won't collapse!).
