It’s fairly easy to make and you won’t believe how moist and delicious it is. It’s perfect for birthday parties, tea parties, or just any time treat for the family!

Ingredients:

Cake

  • sugar
  • all purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • eggs
  • orange juice
  • Orange zest
  • vegetable oil.

Glaze

  • cream cheese at room temperature
  •  Nutella
  • icing sugar
  • pinch of salt

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 350 ºF – 180 ºC. And grease and flour a 9 inch pan.

In a large bowl and stand mixer, beat the eggs until foamy and start adding little by little the sugar. Incorporate the orange zest. You won’t believe the amazing scent.

In a small bowl mix four and baking powder.

Now start adding the flour, oil and orange juice in small batches. First a few spoons of flour then a bit of oil and then a bit of orange juice until you have added all. Mix for about 1 more minute and turn the mixer off. The batter will be thin, so don’t worry.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake it for 45 minutes {sometimes it takes a bit longer, up to 60 minutes depending on each oven so keep an eye on it}. The cake will rise a lot, sometimes it’s scary, we may think it will come out of the pan but it’s ok, once done and out of the oven it will shrink a bit.

Make sure you don’t open the oven before 40 minutes, this batter is very sencitive LOL. After that time you can insert a tooth stick and check if it comes clean or not

Once done let it cool completely.

For the glaze, in a medium bowl of a stand mixer over medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese until fluffy and light. That should be about 3-4 minutes. Scrap the sides every once in a while.

Add the salt and start adding the icing sugar and mix well for about one more minute and add the Nutella mixing for about another minute or 2 on slow speed.

Let it set for a few minutes on the fridge.

Cover the cake with the glaze {you may even fill the cake}.

Serve and enjoy!

    Hi! I really prefer using butter instead vegetable oil. Is there any way I can replace the vegetable oil with butter?

    1. Camila

      To be really honest I don’t know. I have never done it, not even thought about it. The butter has this specific taste that I’m not entirely sure if it would also modify the orange taste. I learned to make this recipe with my mom when I was really young and have never modify it one bit so I don’t think I can be much of a help. You may need to try and see if it works with melted butter but as I said I have never done it so I have no idea what outcome might be!

      Sorry about that.
      Hugs

    Dear Cami, tried this recipe twice and absolutely loved it but both took almost 60 minutes to bake.

    1. Camila

      Thank you for letting me know this. It might be something about ovens being different. I have baked that cake several times, is one of my family favorites and I’ve never baked for more than 45 minutes. But I’ll edit the recipe and say that baking time may vary from 45 to 60 minutes so more people know. It’s good to have feedback so I know how the recipe behaves to different people. THANK YOU!!! I’m editing it now!!!
      Hugs!

    these are two of my all-time favorite flavors! And I think orange is such a great alternative for pumpkin shaped cakes, instead of everything pumpkin flavored! Can’t wait to try it!
