Cooking Methods

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of an 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper. Coat the paper and sides of the pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, no-calorie sweetener, buttermilk, oil, baking soda, salt and eggs in a large bowl and beat at medium speed for 2-3 minutes, or until the batter is smooth. Beat in the vanilla and stir in the orange zest. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  3. While the cake bakes, prepare the orange segments. Peel of the skin and membrane of the orange. Slice open the orange, discard any seeds. Keep the flesh of the orange segments.
  4. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan, discard the parchment, and cool completely on the wire rack. Serve the cake with the orange segments. The cake can be covered in an airtight container and stored at room temperature up to 1 day.
