Orange Butter Cake

When I baked this Orange Butter Cake yesterday, I did not intend to post it here. This cake was made in a rush in between appointments. With minimum time to spare, decorating it was never in my mind. Hence, this was served as it is this morning for our after service coffee fellowship in church.

Despite being done in a hurry and with no decoration, this cake tasted wonderfully good. The orange juice and rind gave a nice balance to the richness of the butter cake. To make this cake, I used a pound cake recipe but added in 1/3 cup of orange juice and rind from 1 orange.

Recipe for pound cake:-
250g butter
180g sugar
250g self-raising flour
4 large eggs
1/3 cup orange juice
rind from 1 orange

1. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
2. Add in eggs, 1 at a time and mix well after each addition.
3. Stir in orange rind.
4. Fold in flour alternate with orange juice.
5. Pour into a well greased 8 inch square pan.
6. Bake in a preheated oven of 170C for 30 - 45 min.

Hi Ling,

Like Vincent, I too bumped into your blog about 2.30pm yesterday 7 August 2010. Invited some girl friends over for tea just before I saw your recipe and decided to try.......it just came out fantastic at abt 4.15pm. Everyone loves it and I particularly love the nice orangy taste of the cake.

Thank you for sharing.

Tried this recipe today and it was beautiful! The texture was moist and delicate, loved it. The only thing I'll say is that I'm a big fan of orange and it wouldn't have hurt to add more zest for a bigger zing. Otherwise, a great recipe - thanks for sharing!

Hi Ling,
Thanks for sharing your recipe. I gave it a go today, although with one less egg (I had run out) and more orange juice to make up for it! My whole family loved the cake - it's light and moist. I agree with some of your other posters - I'll try adding more zest next time for a real citrus hit. My toddler loves the cake too - I saved some batter and made baby cupcakes!
