Easy Moroccan Orange Cake

Here’s a rare occurrence – this chick just doesn’t bake much anymore.  But a potluck we will go, and thus I needed something for a Moroccan theme.  The recipe needed to have very few ingredients that weren’t on hand, and it had to be easy.  This totally fit the bill!  It was great, in fact, I was wondering if I had all the ingredients on hand just the other day...

Easy Moroccan Orange Cake

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
zest from 1 or 2 oranges
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat your oven to 350° F (180° C). Grease and flour a tube pan. If using fresh oranges, zest and juice them.
With an electric mixer or by hand, beat together the eggs and sugar until thick. Gradually beat in the oil.

Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt, and then the orange juice. Beat until smooth, and then mix in the zest and vanilla.
Pour the batter into your prepared pan, and bake for about 40 minutes, or until the cake tests done.

Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 7 to 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to finish cooling.
