This cake has a citrusy flavour, the sweet & Sour orange juice and the orange butter icing gives this cake an incredible taste. Absolutely delicious. This cake can also be made in round cake or loaf tins.



2 cups cake flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 cup caster sugar

½ cup milk

½ cup orange juice

½ cup vegetable oil

3 large eggs, beaten

1½ teaspoons grated orange zest

½ tsp orange essence


Orange butter icing:

50g butter, softened

1 cup icing sugar

2 Tbsp orange juice

½ tsp orange essence

1 tsp grated orange zest



Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease and flour a Bundt tin.

In a measuring jug, combine milk, the orange juice, oil, beaten eggs, essence and

1½ teaspoons orange zest. Set aside.

Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Mix in sugar.

Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk mixture. Stir until thoroughly combined.

Pour the cake batter into the prepared tin. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool.


To make Orange Butter Icing:

Cream butter until smooth. Gradually beat in icing sugar. Beat until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 tablespoons orange juice to bring to spreading consistency. Stir in the orange essence and orange zest. Spread or drizzle over the cooled cake.
