how to cook Best Easy Orange Cake?


Апельсиновый кекс

To start, preheat your oven to 175°C (350⁰F). In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, and give it a good stir.

Next, grab a large bowl and place your softened butter in it. Use a mixer at medium speed to beat the butter until it’s nice and creamy. Then, add sugar and vanilla sugar to the bowl and continue beating until everything is well combined.

TIPS: If your butter is too hard, a few seconds in the microwave can soften it up and make it easier to whip.

TIPS: Instead of using butter, you can opt for good quality margarine. It works just as well! But keep in mind that margarine contains salt. So, you might want to reduce the amount of salt in the recipe. Just a little heads up!
