Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Put all ingredients in one bowl and mix well.  Batter will be loose.  Pour into a 9 x 13 x 2” pan.  Bake for 30 minutes. 

While cake is baking, prepare syrup to be poured over cake after baking.

Boil:  1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 1 tsp. orange flavoring until clear.  Cool and pour over hot cake.
