PERFECTED EVERYDAY ORANGE CAKE

Soft and fluffy orange cake with a tender crumb, melt-in-the-mouth texture, and bright orange flavor. Leave it plain for a simple, everyday snack, or drizzle with cream cheese glaze to turn it into dessert.


INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CAKE:

  •  1 1/3 cup (160 grams) all purpose flour (preferably weighed for accurate results)*
  •  3 tablespoons (20 grams) cornstarch*
  •  1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  •  1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 cup (114 grams) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  •  3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (175 grams) granulated sugar
  •  1 1/2 teaspoons (3 grams) orange zest (may be increased for a stronger orange flavor)
  •  1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional, but recommended)
  •  2 large eggs (100 grams), at room temperature
  •  1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or 1 teaspoon if using imitation vanilla flavoring)
  •  1/4 cup (57 grams) sour cream*, at room temperature
  •  1/2 cup (118ml) freshly squeezed orange juice (may be increased to 3/4 cup (177ml) for a stronger orange flavor. Omit the sour cream if doing so)


FOR THE ORANGE SYRUP: (OPTIONAL, BUT RECOMMENDED FOR ADDED MOISTURE & DEEPER ORANGE FLAVOR)

  •  2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  •  1 1/2 (18 grams) tablespoons granulated sugar


FOR THE CREAM CHEESE GLAZE: (OPTIONAL)
