Easy Orange Cake

Searching on the internet for an easy way on how to  bake an orange cake I found this recipe but I simplified it to make it more easier .  I'm no baker but sometimes like to eat home baked cakes when stuffs in the recipe is already at hand.   I just dumped the stuff in the food processor like I always see Nigella on her food show doing that...so easy and practical.

The recipe calls for....

250g butter  (whatever is left in the fridge I used it all up so it was less than 250g)
330 caster sugar (searched high and low and could not find any so substitute it with coarse granulated sugar and  gave it a spin first in the food processor to refine it a bit)
4 eggs
2 tablespoons grated orange rind (the other day I bought some Valencia oranges)
180 ml orange juice (didn't exactly reached that amount caused I only used 2 oranges - 150ml)



Add in the butter and orange rind with the sugar for the first spin and later add in the eggs, orange juice and the sifted flour.  By the way I used this flour...


'tanpa Benzoyl Peroksida' and the colour of the flour too is not pure white macam bedak Johnson.  Of course I add in a bit of baking powder nanti tak naik pulak kek tu.

Baked at 160 deg celcius  for one hour said the recipe but my oven is the cheap type so got to add another 20 mins..


It's done and who cares it cracked in some places as long as the  taste is of an orange cake...


Looks dense and not fluffy and still who cares as long as it is home baked and not for sale...hehe
