DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with an electric mixer until frothy, then gradually add 2/3 cup of the granulated sugar, beating until thick.
  • In a small bowl, combine the orange rind and juice and add to the yolk mixture alternately with the flour, beating until well blended.
  • Wash and dry the beaters.
  • In another large mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt.
  • Beat until soft peaks form, then gradually add the remaining 2/3 cups granulated sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the yolk mixture, scrape the batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan and bake until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean (about 1 hour and 10 minutes).
  • Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then invert on wire rack to cool completely.
  • Frost the top and sides of the cake with Creamy Orange Frosting and let the cake stand for at least 1 hour before serving.
