Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Cake Flour: For a fluffy texture, use low-protein cake flour, which is finely ground for tender baked goods.
  • White Sugar: Use white sugar for a pure sweetness without altering the cake’s color.
  • Butter: Use unsalted butter, melted but not too hot, for the best results.
  • Orange Juice: Freshly squeezed is ideal, but store-bought works too.
  • Egg Whites: Fresh egg whites add volume and lightness to the cake.
  • Cream of Tartar: Helps stabilize whipped egg whites and creates a lighter crumb.

What Goes Well with Orange Cake?

Enjoy orange cake with afternoon tea or coffee for a perfect pairing. Once the cake cools, sit down and savor every bite. For an extra touch, try topping with zesty cream cheese frosting or tangy crème fraiche.

Can You Freeze Orange Cake?

Absolutely! Double-wrap the cake in plastic wrap and place it in an airtight container before freezing. This keeps moisture out and preserves the flavor for months. Enjoy a moist and flavorful slice whenever you want!
