How was everyone’s weekend? Due to the return of hot and humid weather here at Texas, my family and I did mostly indoor stuff. A lovely brunch then walk the mall for some people watching. On Sunday I took my little girl to the grandparents for play time with 4 little cousins, she always looks forward to it and I love catching up with my parents. One of the best thing about “Zoo-tourage Day” as my sister lovingly calls it, is my Mom’s 10 course lunch! Lately she’s been on a mission to do more baking, so yesterday when we showed up, my eyes immediately focused on a beautiful mount of gold! The Honey Orange Cake loaf is an adaptation of a famous Taiwanese cook’s recipe, my Mom has made it her own by putting a healthy spin on it. The end result is light and not overly sweet, exactly how I like’em!
1/4 cup oil
1 cup honey
2 jumbo eggs
1-1/4 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the over at 350 degrees
Mix oil and honey together using an electric mixer
Add eggs one at a time, mix well
Slowly fold in flour using spatula (split the flour to 3 small portion and gently fold in 1 portion at a time)
Add orange juice and vanilla extract, fold into mixture
Bake the batter for 40 minutes. Voila!
