Yummy yum Orange cake (gluten and dairy free)

P1100298

Last week, a sister of mine came over in the morning for some hang out time and I thought to make some quick ‘breakkie’ before she arrived.
This one is another gluten and diary free treat and I was just trying it out really to see if it works and it did!.  Just YUMMY!!! Sooo light, sooo soft, sooo….what’s the word? yes, easy peasy 🙂

To make, you’ll need:

  • 200 g sunflower butter
  • 140 g caster sugar
  • 200 g flour
  • Zest of 2 oranges and juice of 1
  • 2 eggs

Topping:

  • Juice of the second orange
  • Sprinkling of sugar
To begin:
  • Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy,
  • Add the eggs, one at a time and mix thoroughly,
  • Stir in the zest and juice of the oranges,
  • Fold in the flour into this mixture and mix thoroughly,
  • Pour into your  lined loaf tin or 8″ round cake tin.
  • Bake in a 180 degrees pre-heated oven for 40 mins or until a knife comes out clean when inserted into it,
  • Once it’s out of the oven, pour the remaining orange juice over the warm cake
  • Sprinkle on the sugar for a somewhat crunchy topping.
  • Leave to cool completely in the tin and turn it out
  • Enjoy 😉
