Ingredients

  • 2 cups sifted cake and pastry flour
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 8 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 cups blueberries
Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

Method

In large bowl, whisk together cake-and-pastry flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt.

In separate bowl, whisk together oil, orange rind and juice, lemon rind and juice, and vanilla; beat into dry ingredients until smooth and thick.

In another bowl, beat egg whites until foamy; beat in icing sugar, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, until stiff glossy peaks form. Fold one-third into batter; fold in remaining whites. Fold in blueberries.

Scrape into greased and flour-dusted 10-inch (3 L) Bundt or tube cake pan. Swirl knife through batter to remove air bubbles.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 30 minutes.

Glaze:
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, bring sugar and juice to boil, stirring; boil for 1 minute. Let cool.

Loosen cake from edges of pan. Invert onto rack; brush with glaze. Let cool.
