Delicious Orange Cake


This cake, from Modern Honey is beautifully moist, and the orange zest cream cheese icing locks in the moisture so the cake keeps well for several days. So easy to make, you can further reduce prep time by skipping the icing and simply dusting with icing sugar to serve.

Delicious Orange Cake Recipe Twisted Citrus

Delicious Orange Cake

INGREDIENTS
2 1/2 cup flour
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4tsp salt
1 cup oil (extra-virgin olive oil, canola, vegetable, coconut)
1 cup fresh orange juice
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1-2tsp orange zest

ICING
1 cup butter, softened
250g cream cheese, softened
4 cups icing sugar
1tsp orange zest
2Tbsp fresh orange juice

 

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line three 20cm spring-form tins.

In a large mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients with a whisk to aerate and combine.

In another bowl, cream oil, orange juice, eggs, sour cream, and orange zest until completely mixed. Fold in dry ingredients, mixing only until only just combined.

Pour into prepared cake tins.

Bake for 19 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the tins for 15 minutes before turning out onto wire racks.

To make the icing, beat the butter and cream cheese for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl halfway through mixing. Add icing sugar, orange zest, and orange juice.

Once cakes have cooled, cover and fill with the orange cream cheese icing.

NZ NAVEL ORANGES

There are oranges and then there are Gisborne oranges. Our incomparable Navel oranges are loved throughout New Zealand. 

A winter orange, Navels are sweet, seedless, and juicy. Our region has the perfect climate of sunny warm days and cool nights to be able to grow one of the world’s favourite fruits.

Our oranges are grown on trees we planted in 2003. We knew our soil comprised exceptionally fertile heavy silt loam, renowned in our district for growing just about anything, but it wasn’t until we started selling our oranges direct to customers that we realised just how remarkable they are. Flavoursome, juicy and bursting with goodness, they have to be tasted to be fully appreciated.
