An orange cake recipe that is easy to make and results in a super moist and rich cake. You can use your favourite buttercream icing recipe to make this into a celebration cake, though it is gorgeous as is!
This cake is delicious - very zesty! It took the zest of 4 oranges and I used the juice straight from the oranges too. When I next make it I will double the ingredients to make into 2 sandwich tins and assemble together with some yummy icing. Highly recommended, thanks for a great recipe - 02 Jul 2011
Even though I had to bodge this recipe because I didn't have enough sugar or oranges, and even though my cake tin was the wrong size (a bit larger than required), this cake turned out beautifully! Really light, moist and absolutely delicious. Will definitely make again. I don't think it needs a whole 150g. of sugar so I'll still use less than that next time. - 07 Apr 2011
Altered ingredient amounts. I ran out of caster sugar! I used about 95g of caster sugar (all I had left) and made it up to c. 130g with light brown muscovado. I also only had some rather old, dry oranges so I didn't put in as much zest or juice. The cake still turned out beautifully though! - 07 Apr 2011
