  • 1/2 cup orange juice (or orange juice concentrate)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine butter and boiling water in a small bowl; add 2 tablespoons grated orange peel and 1/2 cup orange juice.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat egg and granulated sugar with an electric hand-held mixer until light. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt; beat into the egg mixture a little at a time, alternating with orange juice mixture and ending with flour mixture.
