Great Grandma's Orange Pour Cake

Author Notes: On a recent visit to California my grandmother gave me this gem of a recipe, it was one her mother used to make. Though it seems simple it is surprisingly delicious and packs a great punch from all the orange zest.bronxbaker

Makes: 12 small pieces

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Softened butter (unsalted)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 ground orange, using a grinder attachment on a mixer would probably work, as would a food processor. I used a hand grinder the first time around and finely minced the zest and pith the second time. I do not recommend using a blender.
  • 1 cup ground raisins, see above.
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
