This is one of my all-time favorite foods, After doing some research I found this recipe and I have made it in the past and it is absolutely delicious!
What You’ll Need
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 8 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 1/3 cup water
- 8 egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
How to Make It
Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F and grease 16 muffin cups.
Stir the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the oil, egg yolks, grated orange peel, vanilla extract, orange juice, and water.
Mix well by until no lumps.
Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl.
Gradually add the 1/2 cup sugar, continuing to beat until soft peaks form.
Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
Fold the flour mixture into the egg whites. Pour the resulting batter into the prepared muffin cups to about 2/3 full.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.
Cool in the pans for 10-15 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
