Orange Drizzle Cake

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"Cake. Citrus. One-bowl baking. If these words send a shiver down your spine, then this recipe is for you. It is a very easy recipe that can be different every time you make it if you swap the oranges for lemons, limes, grapefruit, or a mix of juices. You get a not-too-sweet, moist cake that will be gone before the day is over. Remember to use exact measurements to get perfect results."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch cake pan well using butter and flour.
  2. Combine flour, eggs, sugar, butter, orange juice, orange zest, and baking powder in a bowl. Mix with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer until batter comes together and is pale in color. Pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Carefully remove from the pan and place on a cooling rack with a tray underneath.
  4. While cake cools, combine sugar and orange juice for drizzle in a small bowl. Pour over the still-warm cake. Let cool completely before slicing.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use unsalted butter instead of salted.
