Heat oven to 350 °F (176 °C). Grease and flour 2 (9″) round cake pans; set aside. I used one greased 10″ round springform pan and made it as one cake.

1. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside.

2. Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup butter and 1 tablespoon orange peel in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.

3, 4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until light and fluffy.

9. Let stand 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely.

10, 11, 12. Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients in medium bowl. Beat at medium speed until fluffy. Reserve 1/2 cup filling.

13. To assemble the cake, level the top of the cake.

14. With long serrated knife, split the cake horizontally in half. If you bake the cake in two pans so use the two cakes as two layers and no need to split each layer in half.

15,16 .Spread remaining filling over cake.

19. Frost top and sides of cake.

20. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.

Notes and Tips

I used caster sugar.

I added freshly grated orange peel to the cake, filling and frosting without measuring the amount.

Buttermilk substitute: substitute 2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 3/4 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

I baked the cake in one greased 10″ round springform pan, so I made it as one cake then split it horizontally in half and got two layers.

I used Philadelphia light cream cheese.

I made the frosting similar to the recipe, but added 2 (36 g) envelops Dream Whip.

I used orange segments for garnish.
