3 cups cake flour 3/4 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder rind of one orange, grated
2 tsp orange extract 2 eggs and 3 egg yolks
1/2 cup orange juice 3/4 cup milk (I used 2%)
In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add the grated orange rind and incorporate into the butter/sugar mixture. Beat in the 2 eggs, one at a time, then the yolks. In a large measuring cup, mix the orange juice, milk and orange extract. Add the flour mixture in 3 parts to the butter mixture, alternately with the liquid. Stir the batter after each addition until smooth. Grease and flour two 9" cake pans. Pour batter into the pans, and bake in a 350 oven for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Cook for 10 minutes, then invert onto cooling racks. Bon appetit!
