TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium oranges
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 medium lemon

Directions

  • 1. Grease and lightly flour a 10-in. fluted tube pan; set aside.
  • 2. Finely grate the peel from the oranges; set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in reserved orange peel. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition.
  • 3. In another large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake at 325° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • 4. Meanwhile, squeeze juice from the oranges and lemon. In a small saucepan, combine the juices with the remaining sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half. Remove from the heat.
  • 5. Cool cake for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack. Cool 10 minutes longer. Place rack on waxed paper. Brush warm cake with glaze. Yield: 12 servings.
