Orange and Lemon Cake Recipe

 Need a little something to go with your morning coffee? This Orange and Lemon Cake recipe is absolutely worth the 5 minutes it takes to prep. If you are not into the orange flavor you can substitute it for lemon zest and lemon juice. Once you make this I promise it will become a friend and family favorite!

Orange and Lemon Cake Ingredients

You will need to make this Orange and Lemon Cake recipe:
1/2 cup avocado oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
zest of one large orange or 2 mandarin oranges ( I used Wonderful Halos)
1 fresh lemon juiced
1 cup all purpose flour
Juice of one large orange ( or two mandarin oranges)

Optional topping: Filtered powder sugar

Orange and Lemon Cake
Add the oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla to bowl and mix. Next, add the orange zest, lemon juice and baking powder. Add the juiced orange liquid to 1/2 of your flour and mix. Then the other 1/2 of the flour, fully incorporated. Pour mixture into a loaf tin lined or buttered. I personally lined mine with parchment paper instead. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. After it comes out let set for 5-10 minutes then dust a light layer of powdered sugar.
