1 cup fresh orange juice 1/8 teaspoon crushed saffron threads 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar 1 large egg 1 large egg white 1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt 6 tablespoons COLAVITA Extra Virgin Olive Oil Cooking spray 3 tablespoons sweet orange marmalade 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the juice in a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; stir in saffron. Let stand 10 minutes. Lightly spoon 2 cups flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Set aside. Place sugar, egg, and egg white in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed for 5 minutes or until thickened. Add yogurt, beating well. Gradually add oil and juice mixture, beating until well blended. Add half of flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat just until blended. Repeat procedure with the remaining flour mixture. Spoon batter into a 9-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Place cake on a serving platter. Combine marmalade and liqueur in a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; strain through a fine sieve directly onto surface of cake. Discard solids. Spread marmalade mixture evenly over top of cake, allowing excess to drizzle down sides of cake. Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 slice)
