READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, then grease & flour two 9" round cake pans.
  • Sift or whisk together the flour, baking powder & salt, then set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, then slowly add the sugar, blending well.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each is added.
  • In another bowl, mix together the orange juice & zest.
  • To this orange mixture, alternate adding 1/2 the dry mixture, then 1/2 the liquid mixture, & repeat, blending well.
  • Add this final orange mixture to the creamed butter mixture & blend well.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans & bake for 30 minutes.
  • Cool in the pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the pans & cool completely.
  • For the frosting, melt the butter, then combine it with the orange juice & zest, beating well.
  • Slowly add the powdered sugar & beat well.
  • Place one cake layer upside down on a serving plate &, using less than 1/2 of the frosting, frost the first layer, staying at least 1 1/2 inches from the edge.
  • Put the second layer upside right on the bottom layer, pushing down lightly to secure it.
  • Frost the top of the cake, allowing some of the frosting to run down the sides.
