1 cup 'white' oil - soy or corn oil works well
1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoons baking powder
3 cups flour
1 cup white sweet wine
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 cup raisins tossed in flour, optional
sesame seeds


Oil and flour a baking pan of your choice. The usual is a sheet cake pan but I use a bundt pan instead and after I have oiled it well, I sprinkle the sesame seeds onto the oil instead of using flour - it makes a beautiful cake when it's turned out of the pan.

Add all the ingredients into a large mixer bowl and beat well. Pour into your pan and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for about an hour for a bundt form. Use a toothpick to check if it's done with other cake forms as it may take less baking time.

That's it. You have a wonderful cake that is light and delicious.

Note: If you are not fasting for the Lent season, I recommend substituting 1 cup of milk for the wine. I think it gives it much better texture. I also prefer to use the raisins for some added sweetness and zip.
