What you need to make this Orange cake

How to make a moist orange cake with streusel
To make the streusel, in a bowl add the melted butter, and both white and brown sugar, along with salt and mix well.
Later add the flour and the almonds and mix well. You should get a wet sand like texture.
To make the batter, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, doing so will make the cake crumb lighter.
In a different bowl, beat the wet ingredients. First, beat the butter with sugar until combined. Add the egg and beat until creamy in texture.
Add the vanilla, orange zest, and orange juice and mix well. The mixture will curdle but that’s fine the batter will come together after adding the flour.
Add the plain yogurt and beat for one minute, then add the flour. After adding the flour try not to overmix the batter.
Pour half the batter in a baking pan and top it with half the streusel, then pour the rest of the batter over the streusel and top that half with the rest of the streusel. You don’t have to use all that is left from the streusel to cover the cake batter.
Bake the cake and when a skewer inserted in the middle come out clean, take out the cake from the oven and place it on a cooling rack.
