 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 3 large Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
  • 1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Sweetened whipped cream
  • Grated orange zest, optional


Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat sugar and oil until blended. Beat in eggs, yogurt, orange juice and zest. In another bowl, whisk flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into sugar mixture. Pour into a greased 9-in. springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet.
Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs, 40-45 minutes.
Meanwhile for glaze, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine sugar, orange juice and butter; microwave on high 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Place cake on a wire rack. Slowly drizzle 1/2 cup glaze over warm cake; let stand 5 minutes. Slowly drizzle remaining glaze over cake; cool completely in pan. Cover and let stand overnight. Serve with whipped cream and, if desired, orange zest.
