Ok, you asked (begged?? ) and finally! here is the recipe for the Kosrae Village incredibly Juicy Orange Cake.
This is a wonderful cake, rich and very flavorful. We bake it in a bundt pan, but it would make amazing cup cakes too.
Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon baking soda
Put 1 tablespoon vinegar in a measuring cup, add enough milk to make ½ cup.
Add all liquid ingredients to dry ingredients
Vinegar / milk mixture
½ cup milk
½ cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons orange peel
½ cup coconut cream
1 cup fresh grated coconut
Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed, scrape bowl once.
Bake in greased and floured bundt pan at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes.
Cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then turn out of the pan to finish cooling.
We squeeze the oranges fresh and also use fresh grated coconut and coconut cream. Whatever you use, try to get the freshest and most flavorful products.
