Orange Cake with Fresh Berries

Because of its geographic location on the Mediterranean, Provence has been influenced by other Mediterranean countries. Oranges and olive oil are highly valued--here they coexist in a cake. Orange-flower water adds an intense perfume but can be omitted. It can be found in Middle Eastern food stores.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sifted cake flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

Preheat oven to 350°.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir well. Add rind and next 5 ingredients (through egg yolks); beat at medium speed until smooth. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
