Cornmeal Cake

I made this for my son who loves cakes. I want to satisfy him at the same time want to sure what he takes should be good for health. I heard that cornflour is nutritious and the result is cornmeal cake.. simple, delicious and healthy. Corn meal is rich in vitamin B. There are different types of cornmeal available. Corn meal and corn flour (which we get in indian stores) are same only difference cornmeal is little course in texture and cornflour is finely grounded. I prefer stone grounded yellow cornmeal for this recipe.

(cornflour cake)

1/2 cup olive oil, plus more for the pan
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar, plus 1/4 cup for the topping
1/2 cup orange juice
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Brush bottom and sides of an 6-inch loaf pan with oil. You can use a round pan.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, egg, 1/2 cup sugar, and orange juice until smooth. Add flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt; whisk gently to combine.
3. Pour batter into prepared pan; sprinkle top evenly with remaining 1/4 cup sugar (topping will be thick). Bake until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.
4. Cornmeal cake is ready to taste.
