Recipe 70 - Orange Tea Cake

I'm feeling like eating something light and fluffy but flavorful, so I've chosen Orange Tea Cake from The Food Librarian. The recipe was adapted from Orange Cake from Epicurious. Both are great sites to explore for sweet and savory recipes.

Here's what we'll need:

1 stick (113 grams) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar
4 teaspoons (equals 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon) finely grated fresh orange zest
2 large eggs
1/2 cup (115 grams) sour cream
1/4 cup fresh orange juice (I needed two medium oranges to get enough zest and juice for this recipe)
1 1/2 cups (192 grams) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Powdered sugar for dusting
