As promised, here's the recipe for the "Sour cream orange vanilla cake". My Mom used to make something similar many moons ago, and I really missed it. So when I wanted to make a delicious dessert for my family yesterday, this cake came to mind.
You will need:
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- Zest and juice of one orange (reserve 2 TB juice for a drizzle)
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 2 TB sour cream
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 tsp. soda+ 2 tsp apple cider vinegar.
For orange drizzle:
- 2 TB orange juice
- 2 TB sugar powder
- 2 TB water
For juicing an orange, I use this thing:
People, it's awesome. It only costs about $5 but works miracles. You literally get all the juice out of your orange. But, of course, you could use store-bought orange juice too. And don't forget to put those leftover peels through your disposal to fill your kitchen with even more orange aroma :)
Whisk butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well. Add sour cream and vanilla.
In a tea cup mix soda with vinegar, then add it to your egg mixture. Combine it with orange juice, and whisk into egg mixture.
Sift flour, combine everything and beat with a mixer on medium for about 1 minute.
Pour into your prepared form and bake for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (less if you make a bundt cake).
Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Then invert onto a plate. Mix the ingredients for your drizzle and...well, drizzle over your cake while it's still warm :)
Let it cool completely and enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or just a glass of milk.
