I love the original cake, but sometimes a 9" cake is too much cake for myself and my husband. Unless I make it for a dinner party, it ends up going to waste. I also made various other changes as well including cutting back the milk and olive oil to half cup each, and opted for 1 extra large egg instead of halving an egg. I also like boozy cakes and went for 1/3 cup of triple sec and cut out the orange juice altogether. —Ceres16
Combine all dry ingredients in small bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in a larger bowl. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet bowl and combine with a whisk until there are no lumps.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake 45 minutes until the edges pull away from the side. Cool for 20 minutes. Use a knife to pull the edges from the side and slowly pull it away from the bottom to ensure it comes out in one piece.
