2 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour a 10 to 12 cup tube pan.
To prepare batter: Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add sugar and blend. Cut in shortening (like making a pie crust dough). Add milk, extracts and eggs, beat thoroughly. Set aside.
To prepare topping: Take 3/4 cup of reserved batter and add flour, sugars, extract and chopped nuts and rind (if using). Mix well. Spread topping mixture in bottom of prepared tube pan. Pour remaining better on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until cake tester comes out clean.
Remove from pan immediately or topping will stick. Cool.
