To start the weekend, have a slice of this delicious orange cake. It’s so moist and light, you’ll wonder why you never made it before, and wonder when you can make it again!
Next time I will be substituting the milk or orange juice to see if it will pack more of an orange flavour. But as it is, it is simply delicious! It couldn’t be easier to make either, just put everything in a bowl and mix it!
150g butter, softened
1 tablespoon finely grated orange rind
2/3 cup (150g) caster sugar
1 1/2 cups (225g) self raising flour
1/4 cup (60ml) milk
3/4 cup (120g) icing sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice
1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 160°C fan-forced. Grease deep 20cm round cake pan; line base with baking paper.
2. Beat butter, rind, caster sugar, eggs, flour and milk in medium bowl on low speed with an electric mixer until jude combined. Increase speed to medium; beat about 3 minutes or until mixture is smooth and pale in colour.
3. Spread mixture into pan; bake about 40 minutes. Stand cake in pan 5 minutes before turning; top-side up, onto wire rack to cool.
4. Meanwhile, combine sifted icing sugar and juice in small bowl; stir until smooth. Spread icing over cake.
