Orange Cake

Cake (8 servings)

  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 180 gr/ 6.4 oz sugar
  • 200 gr/ 7 oz self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 200 ml/ 6.7 fl oz vegetable oil
  • 100 ml/ 3.4 fl oz orange juice
  • 2 vanilla
  • zest of an orange

Orange sauce

  • 1 orange flesh
  • ½ orange juice
  • ½ orange zest
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • some icing sugar for dusting
Start by preparing the orange sauce.
Peel and cut the orange into small pieces, put it in a small pot to boil with the juice, zest, sugar and the water. After it has been cooked and has absorbed most of its juices, dissolve the cornflour in 2 tbsp water and add to the mixture to boil until the sauce thickens.
Leave aside to cool.
Mix the dry ingredients of the cake in a bowl. The flour, vanilla and baking powder. Then in another bowl, beat the eggs with sugar until whitewash and swell.
Leaving aside the mixer, use a spatula to add the flour and the oil into the beaten eggs mix…
…add the orange juice.
Finally, add the orange zest.
Stir the mixture gently and briefly until smooth.
Grease and flour an ovenproof pan and pour in half the mixture.
On top, put the sauce, spoonful by spoonfuls, carefully not to go to the edges of the pan.
Finally, pour the remaining cake mixture, over the sauce.
Bake in preheated oven at 170°C/ 340°F/ Gas Mark 3 for ~50 minutes or until cooked. We test the blade of the knife, which should come out clean.
Remove from the oven. Leave on a wire rack to cool.
We can use a narrow cake pan. If you do, use baking sheet to make easier to take the cake out and cut it into slices.
