I love Italian food.
I love cooking channel’s Deb and Gabriele
I love the beautiful and simple Italian food in their cookbook Extra Virgin.
New York’s been having some strange weather so far this summer. It’s been 100 and humid and it’s been 65 and a bit chilly.
So to make it feel like summer, no matter what it looks like outside, I though I’d make a bright, citrusy dessert to at least give us some sunshine on our plates.
This recipe is ridiculously easy. You probably already have all of the ingredients. Oh and the bright orange burst in this light and fluffy cake is out of this world.
You will need:
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1.5 tablespoons baking powder
- 3 eggs
- .5 cup warm milk
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- zest and juice of one orange
Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9×13 pan.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. (That’s right. everything into the bowl. No wet and dry ingredients, no separating eggs, no sifting. Just dump it all in.)
Whisk until combined.
Pour into your buttered pan.
Bake for about 30 minutes.
Allow to cool. You can dust with powdered sugar or, you can serve with sliced strawberries and some whipped cream.
