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.
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.
