I baked this cake in so many variations, deferent flavors, different filling and different frosting but with the same recipe base my mom gave me, with a slight adjustment to some of the ingredients to accommodate the new flavor or ingredient that I added…The cake turns out amazingly delicious every time….
Preheat oven to 375F (190 C)
1 cup fresh orang juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 eggs at room temperature
1 tbsp. + 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup of sugar substitutes
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
4 cups of sugar free cream cheese frosting
3 tbsp. grated orange zest
1/2 tsp. orange extract
1 cup fresh blackberries
Spray one heart shaped springform cake pan with cooking spray, line with parchment paper spray again and set aside.
In a bowl of a stand mixture fitted with the flat beater attachment mix oil and sugar, mix well until sugar is completely dissolved.
Add vanilla extract, mix well.
Add orange extract, mix well.
Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition.
Add orange zest and mix for few seconds.
Sift flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda into separate bowl.
On low speed add flour mixture in third alternating with the orange juice, starting and ending with the dry ingredients.
Scrape down the bowl after each addition.
Mix well with a rubber spatula to insure all the dry ingredient mixed well into the batter.
Add batter into prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the cake cool in the pan for about 10 – 15 minutes.
Remove the cakes from the pan, remove the parchment papers and place onto cooling racks to cool completely.
Prepare your favorite cream cheese frosting recipe, need about 2 cups of frosting.
Cut the cake in half, add the first layer onto a cake serving platter or a cake stand, add half of cup of frosting and smooth with an offset spatula.
Add the second layer and use the rest of the frosting to frost the entire cake.
Cool in the fridge for few hours before serving.
Decorate the cake with blackberries or any of your favorite berries.
Tip: if the frosting becomes too soft while frosting place it and the cake in the fridge for about 20 minutes to chill and continue decorating the cake after.
