Orange Cornmeal Cake Recipe

Ingredients :
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1/4 cup orange juice
4 teaspoons grated orange zest
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
GLAZE:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon butter
Sweetened whipped cream
Grated orange zest, optional

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat sugar and oil until blended. Beat in eggs, yogurt, orange juice and zest. In another bowl, whisk flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into sugar mixture. Pour into a greased 9-in. springform pan. Place pan on a baking sheet.
Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs, 40-45 minutes.
Meanwhile for glaze, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine sugar, orange juice and butter; microwave on high 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Place cake on a wire rack. Slowly drizzle 1/2 cup glaze over warm cake; let stand 5 minutes. Slowly drizzle remaining glaze over cake; loosen sides from pan with a knife. Cool completely in pan. Cover and let stand overnight. Remove rim from pan. Serve with whipped cream and, if desired, orange zest.
