  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon (127g) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup + 1 tablespoon (162g) caster sugar <-- i used 3/4 cup and still very sweet!
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups + 2 ½ tablespoons (225g) all purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • finely grated zest of 1 large orange
  • 4 tablespoons orange juice
Orange icing:( i didnt do this)
  • 1 ¼ cups (175g) icing sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • zest of 1 orange, to decorate
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°; butter a 20x10cm (8x4in) loaf pan* and line with baking paper; butter the paper as well.
  2. Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 8-10 minutes or until light and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat well.
  3. Add the flour and baking powder and mix well. Add the milk, orange juice and zest and mix until smooth.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 55 minutes or until golden and cooked when tested with a skewer.
  5. Cool completely on a wire rack, then carefully unmold.
  6. To make the icing: combine the sugar and orange juice in a small bowl and mix to form a smooth paste. Use a palette knife to spread the orange icing over the cake and top with the zest.
