Recipe // Orange Drizzle Cake

23 Jan 2016

I've made many a rich cake in my time, a Toffee Apple one, a Carrot Cake, a Chocolate Orange Cake, but there is something just so, so refreshingly light about a moist lemon drizzle cake. Unfortunately, we had zero lemons in my house and about fifty oranges. So I grabbed a few and decided to make an Orange Dizzle cake. Clever, eh?

I used Poppy Welby's recipe for lemon drizzle as a basis and it is literally so easy that this will probably be the shortest recipe for orange cake ever, but here we go:

100g butter
150g self-raising flour
4 tablespoons milk
150g caster sugar
2 eggs
zest of one large orange (or two small)
juice of one large orange (or two small)
50g caster sugar

Step One: Preheat your oven to 180CMix all ingredients apart from the orange juice together to form a smooth cake mix.
Step Two: Pour into loaf tin and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Step Three: Leave in tin to cool and microwave orange juice for 45 seconds. Add the caster sugar and mix until the sugar has dissolved.
Step Four: Poke cake a few times with a skewer, and pour your sugar and orange mixture over the cake.
