Texas Citrus Orange Cake

Ingredients:

Cake:
  • 1-3/4 cups cake flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup softened butter (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp navel orange zest
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup juice of navel orange
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp orange extract (optional)
Icing:
  • 1/2 cup softened butter (1 stick)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp F+F Seville Orange & Fennel Marmalade
  • 1/2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tbsp navel orange zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan**
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
  3. Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat the butter on high until smooth and creamed. Add in sugar and orange zest, beat together until fully combined. Add in eggs and sour cream and beat together. Lastly add in the orange juice, orange extract, and vanilla and beat until a creamy, slightly milky texture forms. Scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl as needed.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient and slowly beat together. Do not over-mix. The batter will be slightly thick.
  5. Pour batter evenly into prepared cake pan. Use a spatula if needed to even out the cake batter in the pan.
  6. Bake for 28–30 minutes, or until cake is baked through (toothpick comes out clean).

**Substitute for a square pan

Icing:
  1. With a handheld or stand mixer, beat butter on medium speed until cream. Add powdered sugar, cream, vanilla, F+F Seville Orange & Fennel Marmalade, and orange zest. Beat on low speed for 40–45 seconds. Add powdered sugar (by tbsp) if frosting is too thin, or a splash of heavy cream if frosting is too thick.
  2. After cake is cooled completely (15–20 min after baking), spread frosting all over the top and sides.
