Directions:

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (this recipe uses the reverse creaming method of mixing).

Step 2: Grease and flour two 8 x 2″ round pans.

Step 3: In the bowl of your mixer, add the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.

Step 4: In a separate bowl, add the eggs, orange juice concentrate, milk, orange extract, and zest.

Step 5: With the mixer on low speed, add the slices of butter a few pieces at a time to the dry ingredients. Increase the mixer to medium speed and beat until the dry ingredients look crumbly and moistened. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl.

Step 6: SLOWLY add 1/2 of the egg mixture, increasing to medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes. The batter will become thick and fluffy. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl. Add a small amount of orange coloring gel to the bowl if you would like the batter to be orange. Add the remaining egg mixture in two pourings, beating for 20 seconds after each addition.

Step 7: Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs attached.

Step 8: Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn out. This recipe also works well for cupcakes!
