How To Make Orange Cornmeal Cake

If you like your desserts subtly sweet, then this orange cornmeal cake is something that you should try. It’s moist and light and tasty!

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Cool Time: 20 minutes
Total: 1 hour 10 minutes



  • ½cupolive oil
  • 2large eggs
  • 1cupsugar
  • ½cupdry white wine
  • cupsall purpose flour
  • ½cupyellow cornmeal
  • 2tspbaking powder
  • 1tspsalt
  • 1orange zest,finely grated
  • orange segments


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Brush bottom and sides of an 8-inch round cake pan with oil; line bottom with a round of wax or parchment paper, and brush paper with oil.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, eggs, 1 cup sugar, and wine until smooth. Add flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and orange zest; whisk gently to combine.

  3. Pour batter into prepared pan; sprinkle top evenly with remaining sugar (topping will be thick). Bake until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan and a tester inserted in center comes out clean. This will take about 35 to 40 minutes.

  4. Cool in pan 20 minutes. Run a knife around edge of cake; invert cake gently onto a plate, and remove parchment paper. Reinvert cake onto a rack to cool completely. Serve with orange segments, if desired.
