Cake Caroline

Dear Dustin, Jeremies, Anna, et al:

This cake is very yum and also easy. I made it for my dad's birthday last week, and people ate it.

(technically called) Orange Cake
½ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 ½ cup flour
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup orange juice
1 tsp grated orange rind
1 tsp vanilla
1. Preheat oven to 350 deg.
2. Cream together butter and brown sugar in mixer until smooth. Add egg and beat well.
3. Sift dry ingredients together.
4. Combine buttermilk, juice, rind and vanilla in a bowl.
5. Alternately add portions of dry and liquid ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing well.
6. Pour batter into buttered 9” x 13” pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until springy when touched, and edges are starting to turn golden brown.
7. Frost while still warm.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp grated orange rind
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Orange juice
Mix sugar, rind and melted butter. Add orange juice just to moisten, until frosting is a spreadable consistency.


  1. Question! After you've used half a cup of buttermilk, what do you do with the rest of the buttermilk? I usually just let it sit in my fridge until it starts smelling terrible, then I throw it out :(

  2. drink drink! mmm.
