Orange Drizzle Cake
Orange Drizzle Cake, beautifully moist and jam-packed with a delicious zesty flavour. If you like the classic lemon drizzle cake, you will definitely love this quick and easy to make variation too. A must-try cake for Mother's Day or any other occasion.
Servings: 1 cake
- 150 g self-raising flour
- 75 g butter (at room temperature)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 150 g sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoon milk
- zest from 1 large orange
- 1 teaspoon orange extract
For the orange drizzle
- 50 g granulated sugar
- juice from one orange
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit).
To make the sponge, beat the sugar and the butter in a large bowl until creamy.
Add the eggs one by one mixing well after each addition.
Sift in the flour, add the baking powder, orange zest, milk and orange extract, and beat again to get a smooth batter.
Grease and flour a round cake tin (mine is 16x9 cm) and spread the batter evenly.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and firm to touch, and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
To make the drizzle, mix the orange juice and sugar together.
When the cake is ready, pour the drizzle all over the sponge while it is hot, then leave to cool completely before slicing.

- Make sure the oven is preheated before adding the cake, the heat will help rise the cake straight away, bringing better results.
- The drizzle must be used as soon as the cake comes out of the oven, as the sponge will absorb it better, and the cake will have maximum flavour.
- Or, why not, add it to your menu for an Afternoon Tea to remember. Whatever the occasion, be sure to impress anyone with this scrumptious cake.
