Recipe Ingredients for Orange-Scented Cornmeal Cake With Fresh Berries

3/4 cup whole grain flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup fat free yogurt, plain
2 large eggs
1 tbsp orange peel
3 tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup blackberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries

Recipe Directions for Orange-Scented Cornmeal Cake With Fresh Berries

  1. To make the cake: Preheat the oven to 350F. Coat a 9" springform pan with cooking spray.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In a large bowl, combine 1/3 cup sugar and the oil. Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat for 2 minutes. Add the yogurt, eggs, orange peel, and orange juice. Beat for 1 minute. Add the dry ingredients and beat until blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

  4. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and the cinnamon.

  5. Sprinkle over the batter. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.

  6. To make the berries: In a food processor or blender, puree 3/4 cup of the blackberries, the sugar, and the orange juice until smooth. Strain the puree through a sieve into a small bowl; discard the seeds. Cut the cake into wedges. Spoon the berry sauce over the wedges and sprinkle with the blueberries, raspberries, and the remaining blackberries.

  7. Note: When you use an electric mixer to beat citrus peel into a batter, a lot of the peel can cling to the beaters. So be sure to scrape any peel from the beaters back into the batter.
