Moist Orange Cake


Moist Orange Cake ... A delicious, moist and refreshing cake; bursting with orange flavor and drizzled with orange syrup. The cake itself is good enough without the syrup but great with the the syrup.

This recipe comes from a dear friend Magali who is a passionate baker from Mexico. Do check out her blog, I"m sure you will love her tasty creations. Thank you Magali for sharing this wonderful recipe :)

Moist Orange Cake
*********************
Adapted from : Magali March

Serves : 6 - 8

Ingredients :

For Cake :
  • 1 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 2 tsp.  baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp.  vanilla essence
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice 
For Syrup :
  • 1/4 cup castor sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice

Method :

For Cake :
  • Preheat oven to 180ÂșC. Grease & line a 7 inch round cake pan.
  • Sift flour & baking powder in a bowl, keep aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add in eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Beat in vanilla.
  • Add sifted flour alternately with orange juice, mixing until well blended. 
  • Pour the batter into prepared cake pan. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven & transfer to a serving plate. Peel off paper, let cool. 
  • While the cake is cooling, prepare syrup.
For Orange Syrup : 
  • Combine sugar and orange juice in small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves.
  • Prick top of cake with a fork, pour the syrup over warm cake.
  • Set aside for 30 minutes, so the syrup is absorbed into the cake. 
  • Cut the cake into wedges and serve.

    34. I've never had an orange cake sounds refreshing. What is castor sugar? I would love if you shared this on my foodie friday party today.

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Castor or caster sugar is very fine granulated sugar. You can make your own by grinding granulated sugar in a food processor or spice grinder until it reaches fine, but not powdery consistency. Thanks Diane for the invite to link up :)
