I normally add almond meal to my orange cakes but this recipe is a super easy take on the traditional orange cake.
It smells great while cooking and tastes amazing, eat on its own or with icing yum!
225 grams Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cup Self raising flour
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup poppy seeds
1 Orange rind grated
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar
Add eggs one at a time and beat continually.
Fold in orange rind, poppy seeds, flour and then milk and orange juice and mix gently.
Line a 22 cm cake tin with baking paper.
Pour mixture into tin and bake for 30 mins. Cake is cooked when you can insert a skewer and it comes It comes out clean, the top of the cake should look slightly golden.
Ice with basic icing or eat on its own delicious!
Slice and enjoy!
2 tablespoons icing sugar
3 tablespoons orange juice
Mix together and pour over the top of cake once cooled.
Serves 8 – 10
Tip: You don’t have to add the poppy seeds, my husband doesn’t like them as he says they get stuck in his teeth lol
This also works with Lemons as well!
