Orange Cake

Hello I know it’s been a while since I posted.  Life has been busy, as soon as my GcSE’s  were finished I managed to come down with a horrible bug that kept me in bed for nearly a week.  When I was better it was back to school and I had to catch up on my end of year exams and in-between there has been a bit of football support for Wales.  I don’t really like football but the atmosphere here in Wales has been amazing and everybody has become a football fan.  The good news is school now over until September and  hopefully that means I have more time to do some baking.

As part of my get better plan my mam has been feeding me fresh orange juice and so I thought I would sneak a few  of them to make an orange cake.

I made  up a simple sponge adding orange zest and then when the cake came out of the oven I painted an orange sugar glaze over the warm sponge.  The heat helped the cake to soak up the glaze which makes the cake very moist.  For the icing a made a simple cream cheese and icing sugar mixture with some fresh orange juice.

The cake is lovely  and there isn’t much left.

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.  IMG_0699

  1. YUM!!! I love that you thought to put the glaze on right when it came out of the oven- such a creative idea. I have friends coming to visit soon and I might make this for them. Thanks for the inspiration! #commentsforkids
