How to Make Granma Myhand’s Orange sheet cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and first portion of salt
  2. Cream butter and sugar til fluffy. Add eggs. Add orange zest and segments, and cranberries
  3. Alternating, gradually add flour and orange juice while mixing. Beat til nice and smooth
  4. Pour into a 11x14 pan and bake at 350 F for about 35 minutes
  5. THE GLAZE:
    Mix sugar and cornstarch in a sauce pan. Add the orange juice gradually, blending nicely to avoid lumps. Add the last bit of salt and butter, then heat this mixture over a medium hot fire til it turns into a Golden glossy glistening gleam of goodness
  6. Pour the glaze over the cake in the pan. I poke holes in the cake to help it soak in. Next time, I’m gonna use liquor instead of orange juice to make the glaze!
