How to Make It

Heat the oven to 350ºF.  Grease and flour 2 (8-inch) round cake pans. Stir the flour, 1 cup granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.  Add 1 teaspoon orange zest, 1/2 cup orange juice, milk, oil and egg yolks.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is smooth. Beat the egg whites and the remaining granulated sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until the mixture is thick and glossy but not stiff.  Fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture.  Pour the batter into the pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean.  Let the cakes cool in the pans for 20 minutes.  Remove the cakes from the pans to wire racks and let cool completely. Stir the confectioners’ sugar, shortening and remaining orange zest in a medium bowl.  Gradually beat in the orange juice with an electric mixer on high speed until the frosting is the desired consistency.  Fill and frost the cake.
