Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 1/2- by 4 1/4- by 2 1/2-inch light-colored loaf pan.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. Combine the melted butter, sugar, yogurt, oil, zest, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl and whisk until well blended. Gradually whisk in the dry ingredients. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.

Place the pan on baking sheet on the middle rack and bake until the cake begins to pull away from the sides and a tester inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 50 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes before unmolding. Cut around the sides of the pan to loosen the cake, and then turn the cake out onto the rack. Turn the cake upright on the rack and cool completely.

Stir together the marmalade and liqueur in a small saucepan over medium heat until the marmalade melts. Brush the hot mixture over the top of the cake. Let the glaze cool and set. Cut the cake crosswise into slices.

    This is a good classic recipe with which to experiment. I generally tinker to try to make recipes a little healthier without sacrificing flavor/texture. After all, cake isn't meant to be health food.
    So, I reduced the sugar by 20%; substituted white whole wheat flour for 1 cup of AP flour; and then boiled-down the unused juice from the orange, and added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla,1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of butter and used this as the glaze. The cake came out light with a mild orange flavor and the glaze complimented the mild-tasting cake well.

    By the way, I would probably give this cake a 4.5 out of 5.

    This is the very best Orange cake I have ever made. The mixture of butter & oil gives a lovely texture and the flavour is is divine. The only negative is I keep on going back for more.

    Very nice cake with a light orange flavor. Most of the orange flavor will come from the glaze. I did like the fact that it is not a super sweet cake. I used what I had with nonfat greek yogurt and zest from some clementines. The texture and overall appearance is great. I really liked that mixing the recipe consisted of a few bowls and a whisk. Fast to put together and quick clean up. I will make again.
