Polenta – ⅔ cup. Can use regular corn meal if neededsee above.
Baking Powder– 1 teaspoon.
Orange Zest– 1 ½ tablespoons.
Sugar- 1 ⅓ cup. Earlier I mentioned that you can use turbinadohoney, a superfine (caster) sugar, or even try a coconut palm sugar. The sugar that you use will depend on the color, sweetness, and texture that you desire.
Olive Oil – ¾ cup. If you decide to use butter insteaduse 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) softened to room temperature.
Orange Juice- 1 tablespoon. Additional as needed if desired.
For the next step, we will add the orange juice and the dry ingredients from the first bowl to the mixing bowl. Do this by adding orange juice and then half of the dry ingredients at a time, stirring between additions.
Bake your cake for 60 to 90 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. This cake takes a bit longer than a normal cake to bake so please keep an eye on yours.
