Orange Cake

Although I prefer not to use sugar in my baking I do still make this cake every once in a while for two reasons: 1) it's absolutely delicious 2) It's a recipe that's been in our family for years and it never fails.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup melted butter
zest of 1 orange
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

-Preheat oven to 375
-Mix dry ingredients in bowl
-Beat eggs with sugar and melted butter until fluffy
-Add dry ingredients to egg mixture gradually as you continue to mix.
-Add orange juice gradually as you mix
-Place in buttered and floured cake pan, bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
