This is our favourite cake at the moment. It’s really light and tasty and I love that it uses both the rind and juice of one orange. Oh and it’s quick and easy, which of course I love. In the thermomix it takes a total of 1 minutes and 5 seconds from milling the sugar to caster sugar to the last step before baking. Now that is what I call fast. You’ll find the recipe on page 131 of your everday cooking book. Below is the recipe if you don’t have a thermomix.
250g caster sugar
170g butter, room temperature
250g self raising flour
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees (mine needs 180 degrees because it’s oh so slow). Grate the rind of your orange then juice it. Place sugar, rind, butter and eggs into your mixer/bowl and beat for a couple of minutes until pale and creamy. Add in your milk, juice and sifted flour and mix for another minute until well combined. Pour into lined square cake tin and bake 45-55 minutes.
see how light and lovely it is! Heaven! You can also swap the orange for a lemon.
