"All our citrus fruits are tasting amazing at the moment (February). Now in peak season, our oranges are getting larger and juicier – perfect for this delicious orange cake."

Orange CakeIngredients for Orange Cake

3 eggs
2 large oranges + 1 optional for decoration
200gr sugar
350gr 00 flour
100gr butter
1tsp baking powder
6 tbsp sugar optional for decoration
Icing sugar

How to make Orange Cake

  • Separate the egg yolks from the whites, beat the yolks with the sugar until white and fluffy.
  • Add the strained juice of two oranges and the grated zest of one. (All our oranges are unwaxed and untreated but make sure this is the case if buying somewhere else.)
  • Sieve the flour a little at the time, trying to avoid lumps, then finally add the melted butter and the baking powder.
  • Now beat the egg whites until super firm, and carefully add to the mixture.
  • Pour everything into a baking mould (buttered and dusted with flour) and cook for 30 - 35 minutes at 180°C.
  • While cooking, you can prepare the decoration if you like. Thinly slice the remaining orange and caramelize the slices in a pan with the sugar.
  • When the cake is ready, dust with icing sugar and decorate with the caramelised orange slices.
