Fresh California Orange Cake

on Tue Aug 25, 2015 8:47 pm

1/3 Cup butter
1/3 Cup shortening
2 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 1/2 Cup sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 Cup sifted cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Cup fresh orange juice less 2 Tablespoons
2 Tablespoon orange juice concentrate

Cream together butter, shortening and rind. Very gradually add sugar, creaming until light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Continue beating 5 minutes.

Sift together dry ingredients and add alternately with orange juice to creamed mixture. Add in orange juice concentrate. Beat only until smooth after each addition.

Bake in 2 greased and floured 9 inch round pans at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool 10minutes on rack and then remove from pans and cool. Fill and frost with Creamy Orange Frosting.

Marilyn decorated hers with tinted orange coconut (I don’t like coconut so just used a slice of orange)

Creamy Orange Frosting

1/2 Cup butter
1 (3 oz.) pkg cream cheese
1 pound powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 teaspoon grated orange rind
dash of salt
orange food coloring (I didn’t use)

Cream butter and cream cheese. Gradually beat in sugar alternately with orange juice beating until smooth. Stir in orange rind and salt. Add a drop or two of orange food coloring to tint a light orange. Beat until creamy.

Tinted Orange Coconut

1 Cup flaked coconut
1 teaspoon orange juice
1 or 2 drops orange food coloring

Combine coconut, orange juice and food color. Shake or stir with a fork. Coconut should be lightly colored to match frosting.
