Mrs. Sebbag's Gateau à l'Orange

I was looking everywhere for a recipe for this cake! By chance, my friend Rachel phoned me today and I asked her how to make it. So here is Mrs. Sebbag's fabulous recipe for French Orange cake. It's easy and delicious!

4 eggs
1 cup orange juice
1 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. grated orange rind


Combine eggs, orange juice, oil, vanilla and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add flour, baking powder, baking soda and orange rind. Mix until well combined. Bake at 350 degrees in a greased bundt or spring pan for approximately 30 minutes. (use the toothpick test!)

Serve with Raspberry Coulis or Orange Icing!

For Raspberry Coulis - put one cup of frozen raspberries and one tbsp. sugar in a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 8-10 minutes. Strain and serve.

For Orange Icing - stir one cup icing sugar and one tbsp. orange juice until syrupy.

I've never tasted orange cake before, but I like sponge cake and I like oranges so perhaps it may taste good together.
