The perfect coffee or tea break treat.
- 2 Large Oranges
- 300 g Plain Flour (10.6oz)
- 150 g Caster Sugar (5.3oz)
- 80 g Butter (2.8oz)
- Orange Zest (optional)
- 2 Small-Medium Eggs
- 3 tsp Baking Powder
In a large bowl whisk the eggs with sugar until smooth and pale.
Add orange zest (from 1/2 orange), freshly squeezed juice from 2 oranges and softened butter. Mix.
Sift in the flour and baking powder (mix these two ingredients beforehand) and mix using electric mixer.
Pour the batter into a loaf tin lined with baking paper (watch our video how to line cake tins.)
Bake in a preheated oven (190⁰C for 1 hour or until an inserted skewer comes out clean).
When ready, take out from the oven and let it cool down a bit before transferring onto a wired rack to cool completely.
Serve with butter, jam or honey and your favorite cup of tea/coffee.
