Directions Edit

  1. Sift first 4 ingredients. Combine ½ cup orange juice and ½ cup sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add extract; refrigerate.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients gradually. Pour into the pan.
  4. Bake 60 to 70 minutes. Remove from oven and spoon 6 tablespoons reserved orange juice over the top and between cake and sides of pan.
