Back in December, just about a month ago, we celebrated birthdays in our family. I have shared the cake and recipe for Munchomom's cake, but have really had to scramble to come up with a picture to show Country Girl's cake. We let it leave the house without remembering that all-important picture.
|We kept this for The Husband to enjoy.
3 sticks butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
6 egg whites whipped to stiff peaks
3/4 cup chopped walnuts, added at the request of Country Girl, but not part of the original recipe
- At medium speed, beat butter, gradually adding sugar until blended.
- Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with orange juice, using low speed. Add orange rind. (I added the walnuts here). Fold egg whites into batter.
- Pour batter into greased and floured tube or bundt pan. Bake 60 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove; cool. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.

I send along the admonition to stay safe and warm in this wave of winter weather that is spreading most of the eastern part of the United States.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
