This cake is my hubby's favorite, so he kind of requested it few days ago. so I went through my notes looking for an orange cake recipe. I had a few of them but I chose this one. It turn out to be such a delicious cake with strong taste of orange. if you are a fan of orange you would love this. so let's get down to baking:
Ingredient for the cake:
250 grams unsalted butter
250 grams sugar
Zest of an orange
250 grams flour
100 ml freshly squeezed orange juice
1 cup of raisins
1/2 cup of ground walnuts
First preheat oven to 350 F and grease your cake pan or cover with baking paper. Cream the butter and sugar well, until they become light for about 4-5 minutes.then add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Add raisins and ground walnuts to the flour and then mix them with eggs and butter mixture and also zest and beat well. Slowly add the orange juice, mixing well. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until an inserted stick comes out clean. Leave in the cake tin for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and leave to cool on a cake rack.
This is one of my favorite cakes, as I said if you are an orange fan you would love this :) Hope you try this and enjoy!
