This is a moist and sweet orange cake. I do not know where it originated from, but it was a recipe that my mother had written down probably in the 1960’s
Source: Jean Losey-Mom
Cook: 70 minutes
- 1 cup oleo or butter
- 3 cups of Sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 ½ cup of sour milk*
- 4 cups of flour
- 2 t baking soda
- 2 t orange peel
- 2 cups of raisin (optional)
1 cup of orange juice (I ended up using part Orange juice and part Lime Juice)
Cream the following
1 cup oleo or butter
2 cups sugar
1 ½ sour milk*
4 cups flour
2 t baking soda
mix well and make sure you scrap the bottom of the bowl to mix all the flour in.
2 t orange peel
2 c raisins [optional]
Bake in a tube pan (Bundt pan) at 350 to 375 for 70 minutes
Remove to plate while warm and pour the following mixture over top
1 cup sugar

*Sour milk: To make 1 cup sour milk for baking, use 1 T vinegar or lemon juice in 1 cup of milk. Stir and let stand for 5 minutes before using. This will give the right amount of acidity for the recipe.

I was having a case of deja vu while reading The Haunting History of a Huckster’s “Cancer Cure. It is the story of Norman Baker, a man who promoted and sold questionable cures in the 1920s and 1930s.

Does this story sound familiar to you too?
